There are many things which we can learn from other countries around the world. Take a look at this building in China, for example. Harnessing manpower like never before, Chinese sustainable building company Broad Group has accomplished the seemingly impossible task of constructing a 30-story hotel in a mere 15 days (360 hours)! The above time-lapse video perfectly illustrates the whirlwind construction that highlights the never-ending possibilities of prefab architecture.
Not only did the prototype break construction records, it can also withstand a nine magnitude earthquake and is five times more energy-efficient than conventional buildings, according to the company.
This latest feat, located near Dongting lake in the Hunan Province, tops the company’s previous record of a 15-story building in just six days.
You may ask why in a hurry, and is it safe? The statistics in the video can put you in good faith. Prefabricated modular buildings have 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)
This building was built over last Christmas time and finished before New Years Eve of 2012.
