Would you build a home with bamboo? BamCore says its wall system offers greater strength and sustainability compared to traditional lumber.

Hear from Zack Zimmerman, BamCore's chief development officer and chief marketing officer, to learn more about the product and its features on this installment of HorizonTV.

“Bamboo is an amazing, amazing material,” says Zimmerman. “The built environment is the largest single contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions, and when you have the ability to input a material that allows you to continue to sequester, or carbon sink, into a durable good such as bamboo, [then] turning it into a panelized, structuralized form—you can make a huge carbon impact.”
