The wonders of prefabricated construction modules and modern construction techniques will never cease to amaze me. I just can’t understand why every single building is not pre-made in factories first, for optimal energy, material and time savings, not to talk about a more efficient and cheaper end result and, in the case of the Ark Hotel, only 1% construction waste.
30-story Hotel Built in 15 Days in China
After building 15-stories in six days, Chinese construction company Broad Group managed to beat their own record by constructing a 30-story tall hotel in just 15 days! The 183,000-square-foot building was erected near the Dongting lake, in China’s Hunan Province, from prefabricated modules mounted on a steel structure, with diagonal steel bracing.
The hotel is so solid that it can resist a 9 magnitude earthquake, as tested by the China Academy of Building Research.
