Usage of timber and bamboo as building materials were very promising for now and future. As renewable resources, they have high mechanical properties, lightweight, environmentally friendly and economic. Utilization of bamboo as material to reinforced glued laminated (glulam) timber was rarely published. Therefore, this study focused on strengthening the flexural capacity of glulam timber beam in term of stiffness, strength, and load carrying capacity. This research was conducted in the laboratory to examine the flexural strength of the beam by attaching bamboo strip at tension side or bottom fiber of the beam. The results showed that there was significant increase in term of flexural properties of the beam by strengthening tension side with bamboo strip reinforced compare with the beam without reinforcement. The highest improvement at 20% in the laboratory test occurred on BLM02 specimens of 25% compared with without reinforcement.
