Structural engineers in developed countries who work with glulam and timber and are exploring alternatives. Structural engineers working in developing countries with an interest in building with sustainable materials.
David Trujillo has been researching bamboo for over 20 years and has authored or co-authored more than 25 publications on the subject, including the IStructE Technical Papers on bamboo within The Structural Engineer. He has led the development of two ISO standards for bamboo, which are now British Standards (BS ISO 22157 and BS ISO 19624). He is actively participating in the revision of ISO 22156 (Structural Design), and Chapter G of Colombia’s building code.
Seb Kaminski is a structural engineer in Arup’s Specialist Technology & Research Team. He is a specialist in the use of bamboo, especially for housing, and led the IStructE Technical Papers on Bamboo within The Structural Engineer. Seb is currently involved in the revision of ISO 22156 (Structural Design of Bamboo) and the development of a testing guide for bamboo shear walls and runs international training courses in using bamboo structurally.
