6 Day Skyscraper

PR Connection #15


Recently in Shanghai China they decided to see how fast they could build a fifteen story hotel. It took them six days to build the outside of the hotel. Something also crazy about the build is that its able to with stand a level 9 earthquake. How would you feel about staying in a 15-story-hotel knowing it was built in 6 days? I don’t think I could do it.

  2. I do not even know if I would stay in a hotel that was built in six days. How did they even pass inspection? Or get all the paper work to clear? I guess, they are really efficient. I applaud them to be able to get that task done so quickly. It looks like such a great structure. It can even withstand level 9 earthquakes. I might be skeptical of it now, but if that earthquake comes, I will probably be running to this building to take cover. Oh the irony of it all.

  3. I don’t know if I’d stay there. I’d Rather them take 6 years and have a solid building rather than building it in 6 days. That’s a littles risky in my opinion. It is pretty cool that i can withstand a level 9 earthquake. My next question is if there is a specific inspection that they have to pass cause Im sure they didn’t with such short of time. And with this being a multi-floor building that adds to the danger. I wonder how long it will take them to finish the building and include all of the inside amenities. Being that they finished this in a week they probably could it done in another 6 days.

  4. I don’t understand what they are trying to prove. Completing a building that fast gets publicity, but that does not show a balanced amount of days to have successful safety reached. I would be worried to know they missed a few things, or some calculations are off. It makes me interested to know if they were just trying to save money by not having to pay the workers so much money, or if the building only takes that long because the architecture. If it was me I would stay somewhere a bit older, and that has proven itself in time.

  5. Honestly, I would probably stay there just to say I had, But I would be terrified the whole time and I probably wouldn’t do too much jumping around. As crazy as it is, it’s really awesome that something like that is possible. I can’t say that I would have full faith that the building would actually stand an earthquake, but it got them in the news once again.

  7. Ewwww, now I don’t think I could do that either. That’s insane though. Sounds like something that would be done in Dubai. They seem to be the leaders in all of these crazy new buildings and fast builds. I was in commercial real estate for two years and to build a hotel in this amount of time just blows my mind. Leave to them to do it! 🙂
