BamCore’s mission

BamCore manufactures bamboo-based structural building components that speed construction and reduce a building’s carbon footprint.

Building the frame for a low-carbon construction industry

Buildings and the construction process are responsible for 38% to 49% of all greenhouse gas emissions. BamCore builds prefab wall packages from timber bamboo, which are two to four times stronger than conventional frame walls, sequester six times as much carbon, and are up to 60% more thermally efficient.

BamCore uses Autodesk software to design its prefab walls and collaborates with Autodesk pro bono consultants to improve workflows and transform the market for low-carbon building systems in the construction industry.

Reinventing traditional architecture

Using AutoCAD and Revit, BLDUS is reinventing residential architecture with sustainable materials such as mushroom lighting and BamCore’s bamboo framing system.

Decarbonizing AEC with timber bamboo

BamCore has developed a cloud-based jobsite app to connect construction teams with digital project models, streamlining the installation of its prefab wall system while also cutting costs.

Building for better business

Sustainable construction practices aren’t just good for the planet—they’re also good for business.

What is low-carbon development?

BamCore is transforming bamboo into wood-hybrid panels fabricated into wall sections for multi-family, single-family, and commercial buildings.

The future of climate-positive construction

Timber bamboo is a renewable, carbon-sinking, building material. With growing demands in the built world, it could be a construction game-changer.
