OFFICE / HOTEL / WORK ENVIRONMENT

The Zhengzhou Fourth Ring Line Expressway will be an elevated freeway around the city with a length of close to 100km, with additional 100km of on & off ramps. Work is a bit more than expected, long hours every day, but there is nothing else to do anyhow. The office area is a long hall – where 5 different design institutes and companies with 180 engineers, now close to 240, are working. Work hours in general, are 8:30am to 12:00pm with a 2.5-hour break, then from 2:30pm to 6:00pm with 1-hour break, and from 7:00pm to 10:00pm, 11:00pm, or all the way past midnight; – Since the project is on a very tight schedule with submittals every other week, everyone is working 7 days. Sunday “only” till 8:00pm.
