Building 15 Story Hotel in 6 Days
Filed under: Cool Projects — Tags: — nedpelger

I’ve seen some time lapse photography videos over the years that impress and amaze. The group that gets together and completes a house in a weekend is fun to watch. The video below, though, of a hotel being built in Changsha,┬áChina shows a 6 day period that astounds.

Notice the use of offsite built panels to speed the construction. Some of the other Chinese construction details for structural steel fascinated me as well. The Project Manager triumphed in this project, which was completed last year. Remember this video the next time you’re about to say some construction milestone is impossible.
