Timelapse Video Of A 30 Story Chinese Hotel Completed In 15 Days

While we have seen these videos in the past they never cease to amaze, and confirm that when it comes to using raw materials to put together end products that absolutely nobody will likely ever want, the Chinese are second to none. We would love to juxtapose this video with a 'timelapse' of the the 10 years it will take New York construction workers to complete the Second Avenue subway.

About this video:

What can you accomplish in 360 hours?


The Chinese sustainable building company, Broad Group, has yet attempted another impossible feat, building a 30-story tall hotel prototype in 360 hours, after building a 15-story building in a week earlier in 2011.


You may ask why in a hurry, and is it safe? The statistics in the video an put you in good faith. Prefabricated modular buildings has many advantages over conventional buildings.


Higher precision in fabrication (+/- 0.2mm).
More coordinated on-site construction management.
Shorter construction time span.
Lower construction waste.
Also many other health and energy features are included in Broad Sustainable Buildings (BSB)


The building was built over last Christmas time and finished before New Years Eve of 2012.
