BamCore Sustainability 12 & 13

BamCore Case Study by Symetri 

As the global demand for sustainable and eco-friendly solutions grows, the construction industry is evolving to meet these expectations. In a groundbreaking partnership, BamCore, a pioneer in utilizing innovative biogenic fiber-based construction materials like bamboo, and Symetri, a leading technology solutions provider, have joined forces. Their goal is to optimize BamCore’s workflow, allowing them to better communicate the impact and value of their sustainable solutions to customers. In this blog post, we’ll explore their challenges, the solutions they developed, and the sustainable benefits of their collaboration that are set to revolutionize the construction industry.


The construction industry is facing a paradigm shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly practices. BamCore, a company specializing in innovative biogenic fiber-based construction materials like bamboo, has teamed up with Symetri, a leading technology solutions provider, to optimize their workflow and better communicate the impact and value of their sustainable solutions.

The Challenge:

BamCore’s primary challenge was to present their solutions’ impact and value in a digestible format, empowering customers to make strategic and informed decisions when comparing their products to traditional ones. Furthermore, the unique nature of BamCore’s products complicated digital predictive analysis for out-of-the-box solutions.

The Solution:

Symetri collaborated with BamCore to develop an optimized workflow that streamlined modeling time and project cost. They introduced BamCore’s distinctive framing panels with unique values into the Autodesk Insight plugin. This allowed BamCore to quickly select their products and generate multiple iterations to determine the most optimal and impactful solutions as they evaluated their wall types against the proposed design intent.

Symetri’s innovative approach enabled a fast and accurate Energy Use Intensity (EUI) evaluation, regardless of the model condition. BamCore could swiftly understand the carbon consequences for all assemblies during modeling by benchmarking and indexing all wall types.

Sustainable Benefits:

The collaboration between BamCore and Symetri not only improved the efficiency of the modeling process but also showcased the operational and embodied carbon impact to customers in a more digestible format, leveraging the BIM model and data via a dashboard.

A recent study found that the thermal difference between traditional framing houses and BamCore panel houses over a 70-year life cycle reduces over 200 metric tons of carbon emissions. This is equivalent to driving 500,000 miles in a traditional combustion engine car, in addition to savings on operating costs and a better building envelope.


The partnership between BamCore and Symetri demonstrates the power of collaboration in revolutionizing the construction industry, making it more sustainable and environmentally friendly. By harnessing the potential of biogenic fibers like bamboo and optimizing their workflow with the help of Symetri’s expertise, BamCore is paving the way toward a greener future for the construction sector.
