    Cut corners in every possible area.
    Shoddy workmanship.
    Only exterior skeleton completed
    Not fully operational.

    Basically it will collapse a lot faster than it went up.

    I want to know about structural integrity. Material composition, stress testing, engineering etc. It's not speed, it's quality and safety that are important in these things.

    When this hotel has 150 people in it one night and a Tsunami or an earth quake wrecks the shit out of it, and everyone dies, we'll all say "oh yeah, figures. that was the hotel that was built in 6 days."

    And this would be different from America in what way if not for regulations and such?

    Well the Chinese don't trust them. Occupancy rates have been in the sewer since the 90s for Chinese residential, commercial and industrial real estate. As to why, the school house collapses in the last major Earthquake are a big known reason. Look good, feel good Potemkin village projects originated in China and were exported to Russia by the Mongols.

    You siad it yourself. Regulations. Regulations make a huge difference. Despite slowing the proces, they ensure, to the best of the people's abilities, that the building is built as safely and structurally sound as possible. You think us Americans can't do what those chinese just did? Sure we can. Just hae a massive workforce work around the clock. I bet we can do it even faster if we work to the same level of completion.

    During WW2, we did some amazing things in construction. Some weren't that good, but a good many others are still around. The rate at which we build ships and airplanes had no equal at that time. And the B-17 was probably the toughest plane ever built.

    I am glad to see that someone here is for tough construction regulations and good union trained craftsmen.
