As a non-profit organization, BASE is focused on serving as a technology partner for NGOs, LGUs, developers, and other organizations to build socialized housing communities. At the moment, BASE is not able to cater for individual housing projects.
For professional Architects and Engineers, we are offering Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program. Please follow our social media channels for the schedule.
Base works with five (5) Supply Partners across the Philippines. The treatment involves washing the starch out of the bamboo to prevent “bokbok” and introducing a treatment solution to prevent termites. The treatment solution is entirely absorbed by the bamboo. Therefore, there is no chemical waste involved in the process. It is then air-dried until its moisture drops down to a certain amount.
BASE has characterized the Bambusa Blumeana (Kawayang Tinik) and Dentrocalamus Asper (Giant Bamboo) as viable materials, both of which are being used in existing projects. Currently, BASE is also characterizing other bamboo species such as Bambusa philippinensis (Laak), Gigantochloa Apus, Bambusa vulgaris, and Guadua angustifolia (Kunth).
