China plans to construct the world’s tallest building in 90 days


Dubai’s Burj Khalifa is about to get dethroned as the world’s tallest building by early 2013. A Chinese company called BSB that specializes in erecting pre-fabricated buildings will begin construction on the 838-meter tall Sky City in Changsa, China in what will be a record 90 days.

It seems unthinkable that a skyscraper, let alone one that will be the world’s tallest (the Burj Khalifa is only 828-meters tall) can be constructed in 90 days, but that isn’t stopping Broad Sustainable Building (BSB) from gunning for the record. To compare, the Burj Khalifa took five years to construct.

If the name BSB rings a bell, that’s because was the same company behind the construction of the 30-story hotel in 15 days from earlier this year.

Sure, the Sky City will be pre-built in a factory prior to its erection, but to piece it all together in 90 days will still be a technological triumph for humanity
