Strongest Housing Structures Are Made of Bamboo?
« on: October 22, 2008, 09:07:57 PM »
First Gentleman Mike Arroyo unveiled Wednesday during opening of the National Bamboo Development Forum a prototype 'Bahay Pinoy' core house made of bamboo, the grass Laguna Lake Development Authority (LLDA) is promoting as material for construction, watershed planting and other uses.

The unveiling highlighted gains from bamboo research Mr. Arroyo supported since 2005.

"This prototype can withstand typhoons, tsunamis and other natural disasters," LLDA General Manager Edgardo Manda informed Mr. Arroyo as they and Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Lito Atienza inspected the house.

Mr. Arroyo and Atienza also formally opened at Philippine Trade Training Center, site of the forum, an exhibit showcasing the house and various bamboo products.

The prototype's total area is 30 square meters, including a 10-square meter loft for sleeping, and features a 1.6 square meter balcony at the front.

All columns, beams and rafters of this house are made of reinforced pre-cast concrete finished with bamboo.

Its roof is bamboo while walls are pre-cast concrete panels reinforced with wire mesh and finished with the same grass also.

"The strongest housing structures are made of bamboo," Atienza said at the forum's opening. "This specie has aerodynamic qualities that make it able to withstand storms and strong wind. We can tap bamboo in developing true Filipino houses as this grass abounds nationwide." - PNA

there was an article i read on reader's digest a few years ago about bamboos and the thing that struck me most about this grass is that despite its being a grass it is several times stronger than steel.  in hongkong, tall skyscrapers under construction do not use metal scaffolding materials. instead, bamboo is used... this next bit of info about bamboo was not in the RD article but i learned that bamboo is one very good material to use for protection of riverbanks against erosion. this is because its root system allows it to take a good hold and wider area of the soil.

If bamboo is stronger than steel, our government should launch an aggressive program for a nationwide bamboo planting. There must be a lot of export opportunities from our bamboo industry.

i think this new initiative that showcases the practicality and versatility of bamboo as a material for all occasions/seasons (construction scaffolding, housing materials, furniture, fashion accessories, etc.) if pursued vigorously by government as well as the private sector that have a stake on how bamboo products can be used profitably can provide the gumption that it needs to get a massive  nationwide bamboo planting campaign forward.

If there is a campaign with an all support of the government this will be a success. The bamboo planters let  the bamboo shoots  sold as edible food which is a source of income, this is a short-sighted business.
