    Workers build 15-story Changsha hotel in 6 days
    November 15, 2010
    A 15-story hotel in the city of Changsha in China's Hunan province was built in six days. The Level 9 earthquake-resistant, sound-proofed, thermal-insulated building was made with prefabricated construction modules.
    The Ark Hotel was constructed with optimal energy, material and time savings. Industry experts said there was only 1% construction waste.
    The sustainable hotel already had its foundation so construction workers only took 46 hours to finish the building using pre-fabricated columns and modules as well as modern construction techniques.
    Pravda reports that once the main structural components were completed, only another 90 hours were required to finish the building enclosure.
    An astounding video showing the construction of the hotel is on YouTube.

    Yes...this rocks
    I was told things like this happened in the U. S. not long ago.
    Now it takes longer than that to get a pot hole filled.
