Bamboo is the most used for scaffolding in HK especially with building construction because of it's strong, lightweight material. Bamboo scaffolding in HK can go up to 30 stories and there are alot of construction workers in the city who are experts in this field.

Wow, thats pretty mad, reminds me of that film 'Rush hr 2' where Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are jumping around some bamboo scaffold like 30 floors up!
Far out.

One question, why not bamboo cranes?!

Bamboo scaffolding is very easy and fast to set up. They're light, and can be readily bundled together into a frame. They might snap if they're used to haul heavy items as cranes.

:eek:mg: I didn't realize they could build up to 30 stories! :eek:mg:

Do they reuse the bamboo for scaffolding or is it "retired"?
