Originally posted by PBE6I worked at a newly built hotel in Zambia, and I can assure you that shoddy building work is practically status quo. I don't think the Chinese building will fall down though, and I don't think the speed of construction greatly affected the quality of work. It was a prefabricated building. If there are problems they are most likely due to poor design, or poor quality parts.
$50 says someone dies as a result of shoddy construction within the first year of operations. Any takers?
