澳洲Australia property 30 storey building constructed in 15 days


在澳大利亚 I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo

Quite an interesting idea - I think if Australia decides to deregulate building codes and lax approval processes, something like this could really take off here! Would definetly take some burden off our massive building costs!!

Thoughts?

Another project that didn't quite achieve the same result..

Something tells me building codes are vastly different between the two countries for a very good reason..:eek:

I've seen that article a few times and think its as impressive as the last Breitling watch I bought from China.. which is in the bin.

I'm sure we could do it in half the time if we had no building codes, wh&s, unions and other red tape. It's not like we don't have the technology - China borrows it from the western world.

They might be able to do it pretty cheap, because Chinese steel is cheap.. guess what the quality is like? and I wonder what their steel fabricators/erectors get paid $1/hr?

LOL - how did I know this would immediately turn into a China bashing thread

That incident happened due to dodgy developers trying to make a quick buck which can and will happen anywhere in the world

Really incomparable to the building breakthrough IMO from what Ive posted.

And westerners travel to China expecting to buy cheap products such as your fake Breitling watch - then complain how cheaply its made? Ive been to China several times and have only bought products of supreme quality - and have happily paid top dollar for it



From what I understand, the guy that has created this building technique is looking to sell it overseas anyway including Australia


This thread really doesn't have anything to do with China and its percieved lack of quality.

Sorry Newbie,
I was just having a bit of a laugh as the OP reminded me of the story I'd read a while back.

For the record, I feel china will do exactly what Japan did... They will release inferior products to the masses and keep releasing them until they get it right at which time, the tide will eventually turn!
The Chinese automotive product currently available in Australia is woeful but they are still selling cars as there will always be buyers at that price point. Over time however, they will gradually refine, improve...and better current designs and offer them at a better price.

Make sure you're not standing on the road when that road train comes roaring past..

While it does not fully show the army of people who would have been doing the offsite construction let alone the onsite it is an interesting building method.

This idea of pre-fab construction is not new. It's called 'modular' construction as well because each section of the building is identical and can be mass produced.
