30 story hotel in 15 days? Is there an app for that?…

hotel-in-China-built-in-360-hours                                                              Really?    Do you realize what can happen in 15 days?

  • For some men, it takes 1 year to grow a full beard
  • It takes 1 year, 1 month and 2 weeks (slowest time) to get to the moon
  • Cats can live several weeks without food, as long as they have drinking water

But the Chinese have managed to build a 30 story building……..in only 15 days.

Each of the sections have electric and plumbing already installed, and were even tested for accuracy prior to installation….and all prior to leaving the factory!

It appears these sections that were formed and pre-tested at the factory are like big Lego Blocks…all fitting together just so!

Builders in China completed a 170,000 square foot, 30-story prefabricated hotel  in just 15 days, ending on New Year’s Eve –  says the Huffington Post.

The Chinese company behind the speedy process, Broad Sustainable Building  Corporation, has some former success with building quickly. Once the world’s  largest producer of air conditioning equipment, it previously built the 15-story  Ark Hotel in Changsha, China, in just six days. (VIA)

  1. It is impressive, but I hope for the best! They haven’t previously had the greatest success at following building codes. I will never forget the stories of the 2008 earthquake and the schools that collapsed. Hopefully lessons were learned. Living in shaky country myself, I’m a bit hyper on the topic! 🙂
