Marvel of engineering constructed using pre-fabricated materials.
Did you do anything new to ring in 2012? Well, the Chinese sustainable building company Broad Group did something amazing. It put together a 30-storey hotel prototype in 360 hours flat! That's 15 days, for those who can't convert quickly. The building is energy-efficient and quite a safe structure that can withstand earthquakes up to a magnitude of 9. Once the foundation was laid, the building assembly completed before New Year's Eve of 2012. The fast construction was carried out with the help of pre-fabricated technology, which involved constructing the skeletal structure in factories and transporting them to the construction site for assembly.
