World’s tallest building to be built in China in record 90 daysJun 21, 2:40 pm
If completed on time, Broad Group’s ‘Sky City One,’ the 2,750-foot tower will have only taken one-twentieth of the time it took to build the Burj Khalifa.
The secret to the super fast speed of construction is prefabrication, Discovery News reported.
Approximately 95 percent of the building will have already been put together by the time workers break ground on the construction site.
The architectural firm has already demonstrated their Broad Sustainable Building concept by building the 15-story New Ark Hotel, located in Changsha, China, in one week.
They also built a six-story demo pavilion in only one day.
Broad is confident that their concept can be applied to Sky City One.
They’ve already built a 30-story prototype capable of withstanding an earthquake with a magnitude of nine on the Richter scale.
Sky City One will boast 10,800,000 square feet on 220 floors, all connected by 104 elevators. Citing sustainable design methods, Broad CEO Zhang Yue claims the building will only use a fifth of the energy a conventional skyscraper of its size.
The projected cost of the skyscraper is 628 million-dollar as opposed to 1.5 billion dollars that were invested in Burj Khlifia.
If final approval is granted from Chinese authorities, work will begin in November of this year and be finished in January 2013. (ANI)
