The work crew erected the hotel - a soundproof, thermal-insulated structure reportedly built to withstand a magnitude 9 earthquake - with all prefabricated materials. In other words, a crew of off-site factory workers built the sections, and their on-site counterp--arts arranged them on the foundation for the Ark project. No workers were injured - and thanks to the prefab nature of the process, the builders wasted very few construction materials. Above is a time-lapse video that shows the hotel being built from the ground up in less than a week.
