We answered this question on the show...

Chris - Michael perhaps you could comment on bamboo. How high do you think it could build?
Michael Ramage - Well, we know we can build 10-storey buildings with wood and we’ve got proposals that are feasible for 30 stories in wood. So, with bamboo being somewhat stronger, I think 50 to 60 stories will be probably quite likely in the near term.
