Bamboo Scaffolding?

Bamboo scaffolding has been used for centuries, and is still held in high regard today. Despite its delicate appearance, it has stood the test of time, showing that it is a strong and reliable method of scaffolding.

Bamboo Scaffolding method

In Hong Kong, bamboo scaffolding is the primary method used to construct skyscrapers, which may appear risky at first glance. However, bamboo rods offer numerous advantages over iron rods in terms of cost, speed of construction, and transportability.

Moreover, bamboo scaffolding is actually safer, as the bamboo rods are much lighter than iron rods and cause less damage if they fall.

To build with bamboo, which can reach heights like The Shard in London, only three materials are necessary: Bamboo Rods, Scissors, and String. Scaffolders often construct the scaffold structure in the middle of the night, working for eight hours at a time.
