WATCH: Chinese company builds sustainable 30-storey hotel... in 15 days

Is this why the Chinese economy is booming so incredibly?

UP TO A FEW years ago, Irish skylines were continually dominated by cranes busy in construction work as the building boom continued apace. Nowadays, the only cranes you’re likely to see are the ones which have simply been abandoned on sites.

Compare that to what’s happening in China, where this video comes from. This video shows how a sustainable building company put up a ‘modular building’ that not only minimises construction waste, but also allows for greater energy efficiency in the finished building.

Oh, and if you continue building through the night, you can build this tower in under 360 hours – that’s 15 days.

Watch and marvel.
