Building a Stadium in Six Months??



I have always felt that the way in which stadiums are built and the concomitant costs are vastly inefficient...not because I personally have built any stadiums whatsoever, or even priced a big LCD-screen.  But as I took in the reporting on the build of (various names) stadium on the San Francisco waterfront, I took note of the oh-so-deliberate progress and jaw-dropping bills and expenses for various steps. Now a Chinese company, Broad Group reports that they have built

a 15 story building in less than six days!

Here is the link. 

Six days was an obvious exaggeration, as components were built offsite over a matter of weeks, and laying the foundation was not counted.  But it gives me hope that, whenever a new stadium site (or the existing Coli is demolished) is finalized, some imaginative thinking goes into it and it is built in six months instead of two or three years....and for less money!
