There is Bamboo Scaffolding in Hong Kong. It is interesting as I travel around the planet to observe the construction methods. I try to separate the levels of the development of a country by specific characteristics like this. When they use wood instead of steel for scaffolding, then means something. Note there is never just one type, it is always some steel, some wood, some trees, some bamboo, never just one type of material. This is in a high-rise area here.
Bamboo is sometimes hard to find and is becoming a difficult building material to use because of this.
I would say this means labor is cheap, maybe around 10 dollars per day or up to 15 .. U.S. Dollars not Hong Kong Dollars.
