Proceedings of International Seminar, ‘Bamboo Scaffolds in Building Construction: An Alternative and Supplement to Metal Scaffolds’, 11 May 2002, Hong Kong. In order to sustain the use of bamboo scaffolds in Hong Kong, and also to promote their
use in countries with plentiful plantations across the globe, we believe it is important to formalize their design and construction technology through documentation and dissemination to all professionals in the construction industry. This International
Seminar aims to provide a technical forum for researchers, engineers, contractors, and also regulatory agents to exchange basic design data, scientifically developed analysis and design methods, and established construction practices for safe and effective
bamboo scaffolding. Furthermore, latest developments on both bamboo and metal scaffolds are reviewed while further developments are also proposed for general discussion.
