The Chinese built a hotel in 15 days - level 2, A12

When people were building big houses in the past, it usually took months, sometimes years. It is not true now, as you can see in China.

A Chinese building company built a new thirty floors hotel. A thirty floors high hotel is nothing special. What is special is the time that the company needed to build it. They needed only 15 days!  Two hundred builders built this hotel. It is an expensive five-star hotel. People can stay in 316 comfortable rooms, 40 apartments and 2 president apartments.

The speed of the building didn’t change quality of the new hotel. The hotel is very strong. To build a hotel with such speed was possible thanks to a new building technique which the company has. It is true that 93% of the material which was used was made some time ago. The total money needed for building this hotel was 17 million dollars.
