When talking about the pace of life in China, theres only one word: fast. We have the fastest trains, the fastest runners and newest skyscrapers. None of this though beats the recent Youtube video hit that shows how Chinese construction workers managed to complete a 15-story building in six days. Although the video touts the skills of Chinese construction crews, it has also set off a heated discussion among Chinese netizens, getting passed around major social networks like Kaixin. The question many people are asking is, Is faster better? Although an online hit, the video initially took off in Shanghai due to its screening at the Corporate and Broad Pavilions at the Shanghai 2010 Expo. other words, all the building components were completed in the factory beforehand, so there was only minimal assembly work at the construction site, taking a much shorter period of time to build the structure. The building is reportedly soundproofed, thermal-insulated and constructed to withstand a magnitude 9 earthquake. With this building model, the company says it's possible to complete a 30-40-story building within a week. Its no miracle to build a hotel in six days, Fu adds. He continues that the technology used in this project can lower housing construction costs by up to 20 percent per square meter from traditional models. Regarding many of the comments posted on the video concerning the quality of the construction, the companys general manager of sustainable building sales center Xingyuan Zhao says that the foundation was finished in advance, taking a month, ensuring the rest of the project continued safely.
