Prefabricated 30-story Chinese hotel built in 15 days

Constructing buildings is a time-consuming affair, usually.  But a Chinese construction company has put together a 30-story hotel in under 15 days using pre-fabricated parts.  I’ve seen a number of other concepts and businesses that use pre-fabricated sections to construct houses and office buildings in remarkably short periods of time, and with considerably less labor costs.  Will the efficiencies offered by prefabrication of buildings change how we build structures?  Or are the traditional methods going to maintain an economic advantage?  I’ll keep an eye out for more stories on the subject.
