China builds a 15-story building in 6 days


In China they were able to build a 15 story building from the ground (after the foundation) to substantial completion in 6 days. Reports said that the building-Ark Hotel is soundproofed, thermal insulated and can resist earthquake up to 9 magnitudes. Not only that, the construction waste was less than 1 %.

The work crew erected the hotel — a soundproofed, thermal-insulated structure reportedly built to withstand a magnitude 9 earthquake — with all prefabricated materials. In other words, a crew of off-site factory workers built the sections, and their on-site counterparts arranged them on the foundation for the Ark project.

If other workers can build steel buildings in less than a week, I can’t imagine what would happen to the price of commercial space if buildings could be pre-engineered this way, sent here, and then pieced together in a matter of days.
