How to build a skyscraper in NINETEEN DAYS:Time-lapse shows how Chinese firm builds 57-storey block at a rate of threefloors a day
A developer in China has built an entire 57-storeybuilding in just 19 days.
And as this time-lapse video shows, the Mini Sky City building was put up brick by brick at a rate ofthree full storeys a day in Changsha, thecapital of Hunan Provincein south-central China.
The building has 800 apartments and enoughoffice space for 4,000 people. It was originally planned to be built up to aheight of 220 storeys, but it was cut down because of concern it was too closeto a nearby airport.
The prefab construction, which has 19 atriums which are each 10 metres tall, isalso environmentally friendly, claims the developer, as large sections were puttogether at another location and taken to the building site to be stacked ontop of each other.
This significantly reduced the number of trips needed to transport the rawmaterials, they said.
In all, 15,000 fewer truck journeys weremade, greatly reducing dust and fuel pollution.
The building was also constructed with China's pollution problem in mind,using quadruple-thick glass and tight '99.9 per cent sealed' construction.
The company behind the construction, Broad SustainableBuilding, previously built a 30-storeybuilding in Changshain just 15 days.
Broad claims that its technology is 'themost profound innovation in human history'.
While the rapid construction iseco-conscious, some online users have raised concern over safety.

These buildings are inspected. Theinspection process works differently in Asia.In the west, the builder works around the building inspectors schedule. In Asia its the reverse. If you need some electrical workinspected you just call the building dept. you are assigned and an inspectorwill be out in less than 1 hour. This is why things move quickly, no govt.delays. Govt. actually wants you to build quickly.
