Economy of projects is the most important considerations along with other considerations like lifespan and safety of the project. The consideration of investment becomes more important in cases of developing and underdeveloped societies. Nearly 25 percent of the world population cannot afford to have their own homes due to a very low income. Also one third of the world urban population lives in slums. These irritating figures on world economy tempted me to do research on “Looking for an alternative and cost effective Building and Structural material that can help in providing homes to more than a Billion homeless of the world”. This research has been done with main thrust on reducing the cost factor in construction of buildings. The costs of raw materials for buildings these days are very high and it becomes near impossible for a common man to build his dream house. Use of bamboo in building construction working can reduce raw material costs to a huge extent. This research made a preliminary study of the relative economic condition of people and also of the feasibility of using bamboo for Building Construction. A comprehensive study on the subject resulted in the positive conclusion for introduction of this cheap, strong and aesthetically beautiful building material.
