MADE IN CHINA: 200 Workers Erect 30 Storey Prefabricated Hotel in 15 Days [VIDEO]

Yet another stunning Chinese achievement here before us. Who would believe that anyone anywhere could erect a 30 storey tower, made totally of prefabricated materials, in just around 15 days! Well, its true; Broad Sustainable Building, a subsidiary of the BroadGroup construction company, has broken their previous record of constructing a 15 storey building in one week with their latest project in Hunan Province.

The 17,000 square meter tower is designed 5 times more energy efficient than the competition and generates a fraction of the waste. It is also said to have the capacity to withstand an earthquake that measures up to 9 on the Richter Magnitude Scale!

With the help of 200 super fast and precise construction workers, T30 Hotel was up in 15 days or 360 hours. Watch the remarkable time-lapse video of the hotel’s construction from foundations till curtains and drapes:
