Building construction in Addis Ababa Ethiopia

Short video showing the unique method of building construction in Addis Ababa. Instead of using steel for supporting the exterior ad supporting the weight of the concrete that is poured, wood is used.

According to people in Addis Ababa, this system works. Also steel is prohibitively expensive. However, in some of the larger buildings being built steel is used, but still in combination with wood.

The building shown is going to be a 300 unit hotel that will be the second Radisson in Addis Ababa. It is scheduled to open at the end of the 2015.
