Default 30 Story Hotel Built in 15 Days! Amazing!

a coworker sent me this, being a LEED AP in training i thought it was amazing they were able to construct a 30 story energy efficient building in just 15 days. although its all prefabbed materials. take a look. also take a note of the earthquake rating..

Will have to check this out when I get home. This will be interesting to see considering my back ground in this field, and the fact that most of the work that I am running now days is in Cali

I didn't think it was done here in states, the unions would have had a stroke...not enough time for people to stand around doing nothing not to mention 4 guys leaning on a backhoe watching one guy digging a hole with a shovel
I work near Angel stadium and they were building an overpass over I-5 to connect to the road that go's into the main gate, it took them at least 15 days to just to pull their head out and start pushing on a rope!!!

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

Torque it down till it breaks off, then back it off 1/4 turn.

Nice, only problem I have with doing the work out there is the fact that I don't like LA. Have had to fly out there a couple times now and there's just way to damn many people.
