Pioneering Tomorrow’s Construction Landscape with Structural Engineered Bamboo

Ms. Jo Leung, representing Bamboo International (Group) Co., Ltd., delivers a presentation titled “Pioneering Tomorrow’s Construction Landscape with Structural Engineered Bamboo,” highlighting the transformative potential of this material in modern construction. Focused on sustainability and innovation, Leung showcases how engineered bamboo provides a durable, eco-friendly alternative to traditional building materials. Through real-world examples, she illustrates its versatility in various architectural applications, including wall panels, cladding, and furniture design. Leung’s insights underscore bamboo’s adaptability across diverse architectural landscapes, envisioning a future where sustainable construction practices are seamlessly integrated into architectural design, spearheaded by Bamboo International (Group) Co., Ltd.’s pioneering efforts.

Abstract:

Structural Bamboo for Future Construction World

Evidence suggested that bamboo poles had been used in building structure in China over 4,000 years ago. For a very long time the circular shape of bamboo poles has restricted its application in building. The whole scenario changed with the emergence of engineered bamboo in rectangular shapes. Today, BIL has the experience in structural bamboo application and the know-how to produce single bamboo structural member upto 15m in length. This has opened real possibility of using structural bamboo in modern building.

BIL continues to invest in research. We have our own research capabilities, and also collaborate with other universities on bamboo innovation, including upcycling of bamboo wastes, bamboo with strong fire resistance property, adhesive-free laminated bamboo panel, and timber-bamboo composite structural member. BIL is committed to be a key contributor to a low carbon and circular economy anchored upon bamboo.
