Impressive: Watch China Build A 57-Story Skyscraper in 19 DAYS

21st Century Wire says…

The Chinese are running rings around the West when it comes to construction.

The Chinese Broad Sustainable Building Company set a record by completing the construction of 57-story skyscraper in just 19 days. The building was constructed with prefabricated segments fitted together like Lego bricks. The use of those prefabricated segments ‘reduces the use of concrete by 15,000 trucks and almost no dust was released’, which might have otherwise contributed to China’s well-known pollution problems.

Watch a time-lapse video of the building’s construction below:


According to its 2013 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure, the American Society of Civil Engineers estimates that America needs to invest $3.6 trillion in infrastructure by 2020. The Tax Wall Street Party is looking to provide a solution to that issue and hopefully provide some real competition to China when it comes to infrastructure construction.

A 57-story skyscraper built from prefabricated Lego-like blocks was completed at a record speed of 19 days, a Chinese company says, showing an impressive time lapse video of the construction.

The skyscraper, based in Changsha, southeast China, was fully built with energy-efficient, factory-produced blocks at the speed of three stories per day, the Chinese Broad Sustainable Building company said.

The building covers 180,000 square meters and has office space for 4,000 people and 800 households.

The company claims that the building is eco-conscious as the use of the Lego-like prefabricated blocks reduces the use of concrete by 15,000 trucks and almost no dust was released.
