A Chinese construction firm, Broad Group has accomplished a major feat in the building industry by erecting a 30 storey building within 15 days.
According to Australian news site NEWS.com.au, the construction of the hotel, near Dongting Lake in the Hunan Province, took 200 workers and is set to open January 18. To speed up the process, sections of the building were prefabricated in factories and shipped to the site before construction, the news site wrote.
Amazingly the site had a near perfect safety record and was erected to the highest possible standards. One would think that such rapid construction would result in injuries or even deaths but it actually has benefits for the environment such as reduced waste and energy. So in other words it is environmentally friendly to erect buildings in this way.
The company intends to continue to expand its operations across China in 2013 with around 20 buildings a month being built. Their aim is to have 50 buildings erected each month by 2014.
The skyline of China is ever changing and expanding and if construction continues to grow at this rate, it may change the entire aesthetic of the country .
