Nature & Technology For The Win!

We are delighted to announce that BamCore made Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies of 2023!  

BamCore’s innovative Gen 3 Prime Wall™, a digitally enabled industrialized construction framing system, was awarded third place in the manufacturing category for increasing a building’s energy efficiency while reducing embodied carbon.

“We are honored to be recognized by Fast Company as one of the Most Innovative Companies of 2023. At BamCore, we are pioneering the way for carbon-negative construction around the world, a revolution that is sure to positively benefit the planet and our communities,” said Hal Hinkle, CEO of BamCore.

The BamCore Prime Wall™ is a scalable, beyond-zero-carbon framing system that is custom prefabricated to millimeter accuracy and code-compliant up to five stories. It is faster and easier to install, stronger, and has better thermal and acoustic performance than traditional wood framing. It also reduces operating costs and construction waste while sequestering more carbon.

To drive these innovations, BamCore built the first global supply chain for sustainably sourced timber bamboo, supporting rural infrastructure in the Global South. Developing this supply chain creates opportunities beyond BamCore as the demand for this fast-growing, strong, regenerative, carbon-capturing fiber increases.

“By encouraging the planting of new timber bamboo in deforested areas of the tropics and subtropics, we aid in recovering lands and clean water while providing an avenue for a strong economy in remote villages,”  shared Kate Chilton, Chief Sustainability Officer at BamCore.

Further validation of BamCore’s commitment to decarbonization arrived on January 9th in the form of a $2.2 million award from the US Department of Energy’s ARPA-Energy HESTIA program. This, along with BamCore’s inclusion on Fast Company’s list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies, is a testament to our potential in bringing energy-efficient and carbon-negative building materials to the market while simultaneously creating economic opportunities in underserved communities.


Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the companies making the biggest strides around the globe. They also judged nominations received through their application process. The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides a firsthand look at the inspiring and innovative efforts of companies across all sectors of the economy.

“What a strange and thrilling year it has been to honor this year’s Most Innovative Companies. This year’s list compiles some of the most cutting-edge groundbreakers who are changing our world every single day, from legacy organizations like McDonald’s to upstarts like MrBeast and institutions such as NASA. Everyone on this list does something completely, uniquely different, yet, they all have one thing in common: innovation,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan.
