In 1999, a research and development project titled ‘Bamboo Scaffolds in Building Construction’ was undertaken at the Research Center For Advanced Technology in Structural Engineering (RCATISE) of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University with the support of INBAR. The major objectives of the project are to promote the effective use of bamboo scaffolding in building construction through advancement and dissemination of structural bamboo technology. Both the established knowledge and the proven practice of bamboo scaffolding in Hong Kong are formalized and documented in these technical reports.
