The BROAD group in China has recently made a 10-storey building with pre-fabricated containers in just 28 hours and 45 minutes. The company marked the project as an “Extremely simple onsite construction”. The containers stack on top of one another to create the building.

BROAD has been constructing buildings with factory-made steel since 2009. This year with 1000+ staff they have created the 100 percent stainless-steel building. The containers are of standard size, which required a very low-cost transportation. But the products are always high quality.

This 10-storey residential building has been made in China’s Changsha city. The developer has recently shared a video on YouTube showcasing the entire process of construction of this building.

Generally, it takes months and sometimes years to create a building. So, the question comes naturally - how is it even possible to construct a building in just 28 hours and 45 minutes? It’s actually a prefabricated construction system, where pre-fabricated buildings are designed to be set in a particular area. The building modules look like containers and these are made in BROAD’s factory and then are carried to the building site to set them up accordingly.

The video, shared in YouTube, shows how the building modules were being created and looked just like containers. Then these containers were set on top of one another by use of cranes. Then the workers joined the modules with bolts and installed water and electricity in the building.

According to a report, at least three cranes were needed to set it up, but the manpower was low. This building is absolutely earthquake resistant and can be disassembled to move to other locations.
