Mjøstårnet will be the world's tallest timber building. But what if a fire breaks out? “The fire safety measures that have been implemented in Mjøstårnet make the timber building far safer than a corresponding building with a traditional steel and concrete structure.

He’s is a fire consultant with Sweco Norge AS, the company responsible for fire safety in the building.
