    This is AMAZING!

    It takes us about 3 months to build 1 house--


    This amazing high rise in China was built in just 2 weeks by constructing nearly all elements on the ground and lifting into place. They did a time lapse video and it is mind blowing what they achieved in such a short time.

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Ja, but we forget all the time required to organise all the bits and pieces, verification and ensuring that every piece is correct and perfect. In a case like this, if one of your first pieces is wrong, the project comes to a grinding halt. Lsts put it this way the final stage was 360 hours.

    It still is an engineering feat non the less.
