I think the quickest way to get a ship built would be using mass reduction technology, which from what I have heard, is available and in use today.
from there it would be easy to transport materials into LEO for construction

If you could reduce mass you wouldn't have to build anything in leo, just build it on earth and propel it in to orbit.
If you can eliminate mass, building spacecraft becomes like building a submarine.
Its a pity we cant do it. If we could the technology would give us control of the solar system.
