    I hope they get the whole process recorded would love to see that. It is supposed to be built in 6 days. The video above was originally posted 3 days ago. It have to be 1/2 completed by now. One of the MANY major problems is that concrete does not reach full strength for about 14 days.

    I've got a VHS tape of a 5-600 man crew building a house in four hours - from bare dirt to sodded yard and painted inside and out. Video was used in the '90s to encourage corporate cross-functional teams and parallel processes - it's probably on Youtube now.

    Isn't it pretty stupid to build it right next to a WATERWAY?

    I could see this working easily. If the containers are all standardized in size, and they have teams on hand to hook up each one as it is put into place (I'm assuming that they are pre-wired and set for utilities at the factories), then the hospital could be set up as fast as the containers can be placed. Coordination via computer would allow for construction of several areas of the hospital simultaneously.

    Have you seen the contractor's video posted yesterday? It's a prison; small double doors to pass in food; no inside door handles on the cells.
