Abstract: Concrete is as one of building materials that is relatively more used in development. Nowadays, there are more usages of additional materials for increasing the quality of concrete such as coming from gray and plant fiber. There are any kinds of bamboo in Merauke Regency which has not been well used by the society. Bamboo that is planted in Merauke Regency can be used as the alternative additional material of plant fiber and as the changing of steel carcass. This study intends to know the quality of concrete strength by adding plant fiber and bamboo carcass. The methodology consists of experimental method by using the variety of bamboo fiber and carcass. The variety of bamboo fiber is as 0.5% and 1%. The evaluation and analysis of cleft pull strength uses SK-SNI 03-2491-2002, concrete defraction strength uses SK SNI 03-4431-1997, and concrete pressure strength uses SK SNI 03-6429-2000. The samples consists of 30 units with cylindrical shape for cleft pulling strength and concrete pressure strength tests; and 15 units with block shape for concrete fraction strength test. Result shows that bamboo caracass in concrete is significantly affected and it can be seen from the increasing of diffraction strength which the normal concrete is 3.321 MPa and on bamboo carcass type 3 is as 19.925 MPa. However, bamboo carcass type 3 can be used as the changing of steel carcass mainly for non-structural building
