You will not see this in the news. MADE IN CHINA

Talk about a collapsed market!

YES, IT'S An ENTIRE 13-STORY BUILDING IN CHINA LYING
ON THE GROUND.



(1) An underground garage was being dug on the south side of the building, to a depth of 4.6 meters (15 ft).

(2) The excavated dirt was being piled up on the north
side of the building, to a height of 10 meters (32 ft).

(3) They dug right up to the base of the building.
Then the rains came.

(4) The building experienced uneven lateral pressure from north to south.

(5) This resulted in a lateral pressure of 3,000 tonnes, which was greater than what the un-reinforced pilings could tolerate.

Thus, the building toppled completely over in a southerly direction.




*First, the apartment building was constructed.*



Then the plan called for an underground garage to be dug out.

The excavated soil was piled up on the other side of the building.





*Heavy rains resulted in water seeping into the ground.*




The building began to tilt. Then it began to shift, and the "hollow" concrete pilings were snapped due to the uneven lateral pressures.



And thus was born the eighth wonder of the world.





If these buildings were closer together,
it would have resulted in a domino effect.





Notice that there's NO rebar in the pilings!
Just some wire mesh.























They built 13 stories on grade, with no basement,
and tied it all down to hollow pilings with no rebar.

Brought to you by the same folks that make your kids' toys and want to build your next car.
Now that, folks, is a true snafu.
Don't you feel better now that these are the folks that manufacture nearly EVERYTHING we buy and use today?

One more product "MADE IN CHINA "...!
