Broad Group’s Plans to build world’s tallest building in 90 days

15 May

In this video, the true strength of the Chinese construction industry is proven. Built by Broad Group, a sustainable building company, this hotel could withstand a 9.0 magnitude earthquake, is five times more energy efficient and produces up to twenty times purer air – built all in a matter of 360 hours.

Broad Sustainable Building, who specialise in making buildings that are sustainable, cost less, use environment friendly materials and can be built in a short amount of time, using techniques like prefabrication, had intended to build a 666 m tall skyscraper, but the local government wanted the world’s tallest building, hence the current plans. Sky City One, (the current plans) is an 838 m tall skyscraper proposed for construction in the city of Changsha, Hunan in south-central China. The prospective builders, Broad Sustainable Building, estimated it would take just 90 days to construct. The company has constructed 20 buildings in China using the same method and has several franchise partners globally. The Broad Group have previously concentrated on manufacturing large air-conditioners, being among the world leaders in solar air-conditioning, before they shifted to constructing environment-friendly buildings.

Will it be possible for Broad Group to construct the World’s tallest building using this method?

    The company which originally made its name from air conditioning systems and absorptions chillers over the past 30 years has advanced greatly, whereby they have now expanded to pre-fabricated buildings. The Broad Sustainable Buildings (BSB) Company, governed by Mr. Zhang Yue, now has several thousand employees, thus showing the great developments made. Every employee is individually provided with a bed in a dormitory on the campus, as well as three meals a day and a wage. It appears that working for Broad, was an extremely good company to work for, especially as it has recently gained a notoriously complimentary representation.

    Mr Zhang Yue’s previous profession was as an artist which explains the innovative nature of his developments. For instance the T30, one of their most well known and controversial developments was constructed in only 15 days. However, the best is yet to come. The Broads next project, commonly known as the J220, plans to be the world’s tallest building and contain every urban function you can possibly think of (except a crematorium). They plan to build it on site for only 9 months. Unfortunately, there are many sceptics which have little faith in China’s Broad Company. Unlike many other companies, BSB, has a huge history of large scale construction over a short time period. They have an established legacy of immaculately designed and executed buildings. Although the differences between a T30 and the J220 are monumental, this company are up for the challenge, if anyone could achieve such a tremendous task; it’s the Chinese Broad Sustainable.
