30-floor hotel built in only 15 days

China chalks up another construction record

A Chinese construction and development company is claiming that it is revolutionising the building industry. By making use of prefabricated walls and floors, Broad Group is erecting what it says are magnitude nine earthquake-proof skyscrapers in a matter of days.
The company’s second demonstration project is a 30-storey hotel, built in just 15 days. The first was the 15-storey Ark Hotel in Changsha, built in just six days at 20% of the usual cost for such a structure. The firm also stresses that its constructions are more environmentally friendly than comparable structures. Next up is a 200-storey steel building in Dubai.
