Hyder has revealed it is carrying out concept design for what would be the world’s tallest building, the 838m tall Sky City in the south-central Chinese city of Changsha.
The tower is all the more remarkable because developer Broad Sustainable Building believes it can complete the 220-storey building, dubbed Sky City, in just 90 days.
The group beleives the 838m tall structure can be completed at an astonishing pace of five storeys a day, using its own special system that uses prefabricated sections.
Construction is expected to begin by the end of the year, but Broad is still waiting for Chinese government approval.
“We are working on the concept design for what will be the world’s tallest building, Sky City in China,” chief executive Ivor Catto told NCE. “We are working on the biggest projects around the world.”
Hyder has previously worked on Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which at 828m is currently the world’s tallest building.
Broad Sustainable Building gained attention in late 2011, when it built a 30-storey building in just 15 days using the same modular technology.
