15 Storey Hotel in SIX Days

A construction crew in the south-central Chinese city of Changsha has completed a 15-story hotel in just six days.

Six days. That’s how long it took to build this level 9 Earthquake-resistant, sound-proofed, thermal-insulated 15-story hotel in Changsha, complete with everything, from the cabling to three-pane windows. The foundations were already built, but it’s just impressive.

Despite the frenetic pace of construction, no workers were injured — and thanks to the prefab nature of the process, the builders wasted very few construction materials.

Below is a time-lapse video that shows the hotel being built from the ground up in less than a week:

  7. This is similar to one of those shows where they build a family a new house in a few days. Most of the construction was already completed in factories. The workers simply had to put it all together and do some minor work.

  10. I don't think I'd want to be there during an earthquake despite the claims they make.

    If my experience with things made in China is of any relevance, they cut a few corners.

  16. That's why my family always prefer Chinese contractors, they work quickly and the result is pretty good compared to others that we tried.
