Strange But True is located in Changsha, China. Construction workers in China have erected a hotel in Hunan province in just under 136 hours, putting lengthy contractors the world over to shame. Using largely pre-fabricated parts, developer Broad Sustainable Building managed to complete the scarlet New Ark Hotel in only five days and 16 hours.
Allegedly the building is sound proof, thermal insulted and able to withstand a magnitude nine earthquake, with no injuries reported throughout the entire construction process. The YouTube film below clearly demonstrates the speed kept up by workers onsite, who continued until 10pm each night until completion.
