Building Erected in 6 Days

*
CHINESE BUILDING CONSTRUCTION - 18 STORY BUILDING ERECTED AND COMPLETED IN 6 DAYS! - 8 PICTURE VIEW OF COMPLETION!

I bet American builders couldn't get the application paperwork for the Environmental Impact Study in 6 days.

Why, do you suppose, they can...and we can't?

Re: Building Erected in 6 Days

I don't buy it. I worked construction for about 20 years and know the work involved in building a structure of this size. First picture doesn't even show any ground moving equipment for digging footing or concrete placement equipment for pouring the footings. I've worked on a 13-14 story buildings and seen single footings take about 650 cubic yards of concrete. The pour time using 2 pump trucks and concrete getting to the job site steadily was about 5 hours, this doesn't include forming the footings and doesn't including many smaller footings containing 10-20 yards of concrete each. All the first 7 photos are taken from exactly the same angle and even though in the last 5 photos the pictures show going from no skin on the building to a completed skin with no cranes in place to lift the precast planks that would weight 1000+ pounds. When pouring concrete floor slabs shoring has to be placed underneath the slab being poured to support the weight and prevent deflection of the steel beans then left in place till the concrete comes up to strength. There doesn't appear to be any shoring in any of the pictures. Also notice none of the cranes in any of the pictures have anything in the air. If construction was moving this fast there's no way all these pictures could have been made with that many cranes on site and never catch one with something in the air. Construction companies often have drawings of buildings at different phases of the construction process and I think this is what we are viewing. Enough people to construct this size building in this length of time would be so many people they'd be running over one another. I call BS on this one!!

I sincerely doubt that the structure, plumbing, and electric were properly inspected. Also, it would seem that there was improper time for the concrete to properly cure as well. On another note though, in my area they built a McDonald's in a week. They closed, tore the existing building down to the foundation, and rebuilt the whole building. They were open again the next week.

Re: Building Erected in 6 Days

yea exactly a mc D's is a hell of alot simpler than a multi story building haha.

but yea its either A going to fall apart in less than 6 seconds and about as stable as a gingerbread house or its B most likely fake as can be...

i suppose they can and we cant because we would care if it fell down or burned down and killed thousands of people because of shotty work/materials. (probably not care too much but we would be sue crazy...) plus its china what building codes haha. first tremor and its fallin down.

Re: Building Erected in 6 Days

You know, interesting fact, it actually takes around 2-3 times as long on average to build a new factory in China than it does in most of the developed world. That was one of the factors that the IMF considered when they were rating the US as one of the best places in the world to start or run a business. I'll look it up if I get a chance and post the link.

Anyway, it would take more than 6 days before the concrete in the foundation is set well enough to handle that kind of weight. And even with a few large plants, it takes a while to prepare all that ready-mix.

Also, look at the trees, especially that row right in front of the building, second from the right. There is significant changes in the foliage. This is just some kind of fake to spread another worthless political agenda or make you afraid of china or something.
