Watch A 10-Story Building Go Up In Two Days

•, By Colin Lecher
 Prefabricated structures are getting lots of media attention right now, notably after China's BroadGroup put up a 30-story pre-fab hotel in 15 days with plans to build the world's tallest building in three months using the same technique. Now we have another entry in the taller-than-usual prefab building category: a 10-story building in Mohali, India, that was built in two days. TWO DAYS.
Entrepreneur Harpal Singh financed the construction of the building, known as Instacon, and enlisted more than 200 people for the project, which he told The Times Of India was the first of its kind in the country. Even more impressive: The building was approved for the highest-risk earthquake zone in the country, he claims.
