The construction picture looks like building blocks (lego style). i would assume the construction time only put into account the finished "blocks" being locked together.
Probably took a few months to manufacture all of the "block" pieces i would assume.
One’s first and foremost concern in regard to this building, and its unique methodology, would be that of safety, with an overwhelming conclusion that there is no way such speed could come without a cost to occupational health and safety standards. This is especially relevant given China’s highly criticised ‘Blood Soaked GDP’, a vulgar statement referring to the country’s recent spate of infrastructure accidents allegedly associated with careless construction efforts caused by speed.
That may, however, be incorrect, and T30 in fact boasts qualities that suggest the opposite. Like the former Ark Hotel, the onsite injury list has been at zero. In addition to that, the China Academy of Building Research has assured utmost structural soundness, going as far as to confirm that the building has been constructed solidly enough to withstand a magnitude 9 earthquake.
