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.
A Cement-Bamboo Frame house typically costs around Php8,500-Php9,500 per square meter or an average of Php225,000 for a 25sqm house depending on the location and wind zone of the area. The house includes the space for common area, kitchen, bathroom, and a bedroom, which can further be divided into two rooms.
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 absorbed completely 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).
