A construction firm in China has made a splash on the internet after building a 10-storey apartment tower in just over a day.
According to CNN, BROAD Group was able to use a pre-fabricated, modular design to erect the building in the Chinese city of Changsha in only 28 hours and 45 minutes.
The container-sized units were built at a factory and then quickly transported to the construction site, stacked on top of each other and bolted in place into a fully-formed tower.
“Standard container size, low-cost transportation worldwide. Extremely simple onsite installation” says the Group in a video.
All that was required after the installation was to “just tighten bolts and connect water and electricity.”
