英语新闻:某开发商19天建造一座57层大厦

A developer in China has built an entire 57-storey building in just 19 days.
一家中国开发商在19天的时间里建造了一座57层的大厦。

And as this time-lapse video shows, the Mini Sky City building was put up brick by brick at a rate ofthr ee full storeys a day in Changsha, thecapital of Hunan Province in south-central China.
从延时视频中可以看出这座大厦一点一点的建造过程,每天建造三层,位于湖南长沙。

The building has 800 apartments and enough office space for 4,000 people. It was originally planned to be built up to aheight of 220 storeys, but it was cut down because of concern it was too close to a nearby airport.
这座大厦有800个公寓,以及能容纳4000人的办公空间。原先的计划是建造220层,但是由于附近有个机场,所以被取消。

The prefab construction, which has 19 atriums which are each 10 metres tall, is also environmentally friendly, claims the developer, as large sections were put together at another location and taken to the building site to be stacked on top of each other.
总共有19个中庭,每个10米高。开发商说,这座大厦还是环境友好型的,因为每个模块都是在另一个地方事先组装好的,然后运到现场一个一个的堆放上去。

This significantly reduced the number of trips needed to transport the raw materials, they said.
这大大减少了运输原材料的时间。


In all, 15,000 fewer truck journeys were made, greatly reducing dust and fuel pollution.
总之,省去了15000趟的卡车运输,大大降低了粉尘和燃料污染。

The building was also constructed with China's pollution problem in mind,using quadruple-thick glass and tight '99.9 per cent sealed' construction.
在建造这座大厦时还考虑到了中国的污染问题,所以使用的是四倍厚的玻璃和99.9%密封的紧密建筑结构。

The company behind the construction, Broad SustainableBuilding, previously built a 30-storey building in Changshain just 15 days.
这家远大可建科技有限公司之前在长沙还以15天建成了一座30层高的建筑。

Broad claims that its technology is 'themost profound innovation in human history'.
远大称该公司的技术是"人类历史上意义最深远的创新"。

While the rapid construction is eco-conscious, some online users have raised concern over safety.
虽然这种快速的建筑过程很生态环保,但是一些网友对其安全性产生疑虑。
