Jiangsu Building Uses Bamboo Instead of Steel Rebar, Developer Claims It Is Playing a Prank on the Homeowner
Moso bamboo and steel reinforced bars are two things that have absolutely nothing to do with each other, but, sometimes, these two things have still been equated by people, such as just recently in a new building being constructed in Taizhou city Jiangyan district, where some homebuyers discovered that sheets of moso bamboo have been suspected of being used in the place of steel rebar during construction.
Those familiar with the situation exposed it saying a homeowner who just received his [newly constructed] apartment and immediately began interior decorations had tore down an air-conditioning partitioning wall on the balcony only to discover there wasn’t a single steel reinforcing bar inside, but in their place were two flat pieces of moso bamboo approximately one meter long and 10+ centimeters wide. At first, the developer explained that this was a prank by construction workers, with the intent of playing a joke with the homeowner. However, after continued questioning by this reporter, the developer then alleged that it was the homeowner and construction workers conspiring together with the intent of extorting the developer.
At present, the local public security organs have already opened a case and begun investigating. As for whether or not the building has construction quality issues, that must wait until after the supervising regulatory department has completed its evaluation to be determined.
Comments from NetEase:
Also, just how did it past inspection during construction? This must be thoroughly investigated!!
So in the future we’ll just buy houses with hell money. We’re also just joking with you.
“the developer explained that this was a prank by construction workers, with the intent of playing a joke with the homeowner.

Whether or not it was extortion depends on the developer’s capabilities.
70 years is simply a joke!
I’ll give you the housing payment by burning it for you next Qingming Festival, and I’m not joking with you.
China’s construction and engineering inspectors can be all be put to death.
People’s hearts have fallen into the pit of money. This kind of unscrupulous developer should be charged with murder.
Shameless to the extreme!
The homebuyer should pay for the home with hell money — not joking.
Who handled the inspections? Come out and explain yourself! Whoever supervised, you also come out and explain yourself!
Could a second fallen building incident occur?
If those who purchased an apartment there don’t fight for an explanation, then you’re on your own.
When the fallen building incident happened in Shanghai, no one had moved in yet, but now/this…
Amen, may God protect the innocent then.
