This is not only a Chinese record, but also a world record.
Recently, Sanya City, Hainan Province, relocated a hotel in Hongtan Bay.
In December, this four-storey fan-shaped building with a total building area of 4,658 square meters and a total weight of 7,500 tons was moved about 500 meters to the northwest, setting a record for the mass of buildings being moved. This is not only a Chinese record, but also a world record.
The reason for moving this building was to protect the environment of the coastline, to prevent large-scale demolition and construction of a new hotel, and to save resources.
According to representatives of the company that was engaged in moving the hotel, such work costs about 30% -50% of the cost of demolition and reconstruction of the building. Besides saving money, it can also save time and protect the environment. Therefore, such projects are becoming more and more popular all over the world.
It is worth noting that the hotel has one underground floor, so it had to be raised to a solid height to move to a new location.
