    Impressive - now if they can work out a way of doing motorway roadworks this quick that would help us all.

    That's why it took six days rather than five, they had to wait for the little 'Sorry we weren't there to start with' bag.

    Well yes, but I ignore that and use a decent tool that doesn't rip your hands to shreads.

    Chinese hotels - trying to be on par with God since 2010


    That'd be one hell of a 60 minute makeover episode
    "you wanted your tired old kitchen updating and your bedroom painted......well our Chinese workers have decided **** that and have built you your own office block. Jamie, your room is on the 15th floor"

    If it was safe to build that fast, we in the west would have been doing it long ago. A major problem they've had in China with teh high deathtoll in earthquakes in recent years has been down to construction methods being employed out there. From shanty like properties to new office buildings the level of planning and care taken is not even half that that we in the west use. India too suffers from a similar problem with project management and elf'n'saftey being non-existant on many construction (The commonwealth games anyone?) projects. They are doing the modern day equivilent of what Victorian house builders did 150 years ago when creating many workers homes. Get it up quick and hope it lasts.

    I know a few building firms in this country that have the same mentality!
