15-Story Hotel Built In 6 Days
This Chinese hotel was built with speed, but it also was built with precision. Is this the future of the 'green' building industry?
It took workers just 46 hours using prefabricated columns and modules to finish the main structure of the Ark Hotel, then an additional 90 hours to complete its enclosure.
Why is not every single building pre-made in factories first, for optimal energy, material and time savings and - in the case of the Ark Hotel - only 1% construction waste?
Level 9 Earthquake Resistance, diagonal bracing structure, light
weight, steel construction, 150mm thermal
insulation for walls and roofs, triple glazed plastic
windows, external solar shading, heat insulation, fresh
air heat recovery, LED lighting,
components factory made, construction waste (packaging materials from on site set-up)
only 1% of total weight of the building.
