Environmental concerns about deforestation and sustainability have positioned bamboo as a serious competitor to timber in today’s construction industry.

Beyond energy efficiency and water conservation, bamboo is set to revolutionize the building industry as it provides a sustainable foundation for projects whether it be a modest residential house frame to supporting skyscrapers.
