1000 beds hospital in Wuhan, China is planned to be built within six days. But I think it may take a few more extra days of work.
I assume it would be the world fastest ever hospital build on such as scale.
How the hospital would be built so quickly?
The hospital will use prefabricated structures. So it would not wait for concrete to dry. I assume most of the structures will consist of prefabricated steel and prefabricated concrete.
These structures can be sourced quickly from various suppliers. The hospital is estimated to be spread over around 25,000- square-metre (270,000-square-foot) of area.
Building machinery, including 35 diggers and 10 bulldozers started working from Thursday, 23rd January 2020.
With prefabrication, it is quite easy. It saves time and money. I would not be surprised to see it is completed within 6 days.
China has a record of building a 57 stories building in just 19 days. Below is time-lapsed video.
