Wonderful. What do you mean by 15 days though?
The timer in the video says it took 62 hours, plus ~24 hours to finish the cladding, that's approximately 4 days, not 15.
Anyway, 4 days for a 12 storey building is pretty impressive

A lot more breaks! Because they don't need to hire as many workers.

And I would not be surprised if the building comes with a 5 year warranty.

Aircraft bodies are built like giant puzzles from thousands of prefabricated plates and components. This maximises flexibility, minimises materials used, and leads to very high overall strength.

I don't understand why people keep making fun of this, expecting it to collapse. It will be stronger than a comparable structure built the traditional way because every single room in the entire building will have leevay to flex in the event of external stresses such as earthquakes, and each one component will be less reliant on the overall sum of components composing the structure for support.

The Environment Impact Assessment Center of Hunan University is contracted to conduct environmental impact study of the project. A public information notice was posted on 8/27/12 and is required to give 10 business days to solicit public opinions.

我单位已承接远大可建科技有限公司天空城市建设项目环境影响报告书编制工作,依据国家环境保护总局制定的《环境影响评价公众参与暂行办法》(环发2006[28]号),现将环境影响评价工作的相关信息公示如下:
(一)建设项目的名称及概要
项目名称:天空城市建设项目
建设性质:新建
建设地址:湖南长沙望城区滨水新城核心区
建设单位:远大可建科技有限公司
总投资及资金来源:420723.85万元,资金来源为企业自筹
项目概况:项目总用地117.07亩,其中:代征城市道路用地33.48亩,绿地控制用地12.30亩,净用地面积71.28亩;项目拟打造混合型社区,采用钢结构体系,建设一栋高220层、838米的世界第一高楼(包括天线高101米),总建筑面积107.6万㎡,其中:地上建筑面积996000㎡,地下建筑面积80000㎡;容积率12.76;建筑密度9.23%;绿化率46%;可容纳31400人。建筑主体分为四大功能区:
⑴ 1-15楼为综合功能区,建筑面积108000㎡,其中:学校27000㎡,医院27000㎡,写字楼27000㎡,商店27000㎡;
⑵ 16-180层为居住功能区,建筑面积842400㎡,其中:16-60层建成324000㎡小公寓,61-120层建成316800㎡中公寓,121-180层建成201600㎡大公寓;
⑶ 181-220层为酒店功能区,建筑面积45600㎡,其中:181层为酒店大堂1440㎡,182层为餐厅1440㎡,183-209层为酒店客房38880㎡,210层为1440㎡,211层为危机房240㎡,212-219层为餐厅1920㎡,220层为气象台240㎡;
⑷ 地下负2层停车区,建筑面积80000㎡,可容纳4000个车位。
(二)项目拟采取的污染防治对策
1、施工期
本项目施工期将产生噪声、扬尘、建筑和施工人员生活垃圾。施工期重点是加强管理,只要精心安排,施工进度严格管理,对扬尘、噪声采取有效措施进行控制、治理,建筑和生活垃圾按规定处理,施工产生的弃土及时回填和清运,采取以上措施后,本项目施工期对环境造成的影响很小,施工结束即影响结束。
2、营运期
(1)生活污水:项目建成后,雨水、废水和污水分别排放。雨水和废水经反渗透后循环利用,每60层设置一个收集水箱。生活污水每30层为一个分区,经分区横管导流,进入室外污水主管,排到化粪池,经处理后制沼气后,再排到市政下水道。
(2)环境空气:地下停车库内合理安置机械抽排风设施,将汽车废气和地下设备房废气引至地面绿地处排放。锅炉燃烧废气和厨房油烟经经锅炉房排气筒引至屋顶排放,
(3)声学环境:各种机组设备置于地下室,运行时产生的噪声,通过采取墙体隔声、消音、吸声、减振等降噪措施进行治理,运行时场界可满足《工业企业厂界噪声标准》的2类标准要求。
(4)固体废物:固体废物经分类收集于垃圾中转房,再交由区环卫部门统一处理,日产日清。
(三)公众意见征求
征求公众意见内容如下:
对项目建设的态度;项目建设对本地经济发展、环境质量和本地居民生活的影响;项目建设施工期和营运期主要的环境影响;希望以何种方式减轻项目环境影响;其它意见或建议。

We should open a thread for this one as soon as they release som render.

China To House The World’s Tallest Tower – 2 Km High | 636 Floors

The construction of 1km high tower, the Kingdom Tower, is underway. It was announced that it will surpass the Burj Khalifa (828m high) to become the world’s tallest tower. The construction of the tower began early this year. And in June this year, Kingdom Holding Company (KHC) Chairman Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, announced that the tower would be finished my mid-2017. But looks like even it is going to have the title of the “world’s tallest tower” for a short period. China’s Broad Sustainable Building, a construction firm, has revealed its plans of constructing a 2km high tower.

Immediately after the designs and plans of the kilometre long Kingdom Tower were released the researchers decided to find upto which height the buildings can be constructed without much problem. Dr. Sang Dae Kim, chairman of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat announced that a 2km high tower could soon be a reality and it is actually possible. But any height beyond that would require a lot of extra effort.

Zhang Yue , CEO, Broad Sustainable Building on an interview to “The Made-in-China CEO” magazine said that the firm is planning to construct a two-kilometre high tower which will have 636 floors. Dismissing the idea that they want to construct tall buildings for the sensationalism, he said that such tall structures are very essential to meet the land shortages problem. He said, “Some say that it’s sensationalism to construct such a tall building. That’s not so. Land shortages are already a grave problem. There’s also the very serious transportation issue. We must bring cities together and stretch for the sky in order to save cities and save the Earth.”

The firm is already known for some fast track constructions in China. The construction of a 16-storey building, ‘The New Ark Hotel’, in just six days made the firm first come under the limelight. Then they came up with the construction of 30-storey hotel in Hunan province and this was finished in just 15 days.

They also plan to construct an 838-meter high tower, titled “Sky City 220”, in four months time from the time of ground breaking. It will be 10 taller than Burj Khalifa, which is currently the world’s tallest tower. This sky city tower will have schools, hospital, 17 helipads and will be capable of housing 30,000 people.

Though the 2km high tower will have some disadvantages, like wastage of floor area by the elevators, it still has to be researched. The conditions of the wind and the temperatures must be analysed. The location of the tower and the timeline of the project are yet to be revealed.

Oh please, oh please, just 2 things... 1: Decent disgn. 2: First tier city.
