Those who can, build.
The Tocci VDC team came back refreshed after a long-weekend for Thanksgiving. Here’s what they’re reading and sharing.
Jovial Sanon, VDC Modeler, came across this interesting article over the weekend from the National Post, on China’s latest construction superlative: the world’s tallest skyscraper in three months! They are planning to achieve this through the speed of modular construction and by circumventing traditional construction methods. 220 storeys in just 90 days will be a very impressive engineering feat, but at what cost? Safety? Creativity? Quality? Great read nonetheless.
Pierce Reynoldson, VDC Manager responds: You should see what they can do with a highway!
Drew Dana, Cost Engineer / VDC, shared another link, a video: This is the same system they will probably use, minus the dramatic music. 30 storeys in 15 days using steel and concrete – not too shabby.
Val Tzvetkov, VDC Modeler, responds with the inspiration for the post title:

So true. So true.
