The great interest in using wood for building provided Moelven with strong operating income in the first quarter, although the winter cooled some parts of the market.
During the winter Olympics at Lillehammer Rune Abrahamsen found motivation to set world records using timber as a building material. 24 years later he is spearheading the timber structure in the world’s tallest pure timber building.
Director Sverre Tiltnes of Bygg21 says that Mjøstårnet is world-class engineering.
“With a wider building, it will be possible to build a timber building taller than 100 metres. 150 metres should also be possible. Possibly even taller.”
Moelven posted a NOK 420 million profit on the company's operations in 2017. This is an earnings improvement of NOK 125 million compared to the previous year
“Mjøstårnet” will be more than 80 metres tall, and stand 30 metres higher than what is today considered the world’s tallest timber building.
Why will “Mjøstårnet” be the world’s tallest timber building? Here’s the answer!
“Greenhouse gas emissions and rising temperatures are serious. Each and every one of us needs to become aware of what we do, what we consume and how we live,” says builder Arthur Buchardt.
Moelven improved its operating result for the first nine months by NOK 24 million compared with the corresponding period last year.
That is what Rune Abrahamsen of Moelven Limtre AS and nine other experts will define this Sunday in Sydney at an international workshop on tall timber buildings.
