Mjøstårnet awarded Norwegian Tech Award
The world’s tallest timber building has been awarded the Norwegian Tech Award 2018. Mjøstårnet was declared winner in the Building and Construction category.
Sustainable Scandinavian timber used globally
As Moelven has just finished assembling the world's tallest timber building, the growing interest for Scandinavian timber is also reaching new heights.
A knight to remember
Suzan Ljungemo, International Sales Director in Moelven Export Sales AB, is appointed the Knight of the Order of the Wood Market. The prize is awarded by Swedish Wood to individuals who contribute in exceptional ways to the industry's development. “I am honored to receive the award for developing new markets for Scandinavian timber in Asia”, says Ljungemo.
Historic quarter for Moelven
Moelven delivered a solid result in the third quarter, which was marked by a world record and its biggest-ever investment.
Mjøstårnet: A Sustainable Pilot Project
Constructing tall buildings in timber has great environmental benefits. "Using timber in the load-bearing structures can reduce emissions from material production by up to 85 percent," says environmental advisor and architect Bård S. Solem.
Mjøstårnet will be even taller
The world’s tallest timber building will now stand at 85.4 metres. This became clear when the last beam was hoisted into place on the building in Brumunddal on Tuesday morning. Mjøstårnet will therefore be more than four metres taller than originally planned. Here is the story of how the world record was raised to new heights.
Strong results from Moelven
High demand for sustainable building materials ensures that Moelven delivers one of its best six-month results of all time.
How to assemble a world record
The world’s tallest timber building is groundbreaking for more than just its height. When Mjøstårnet was to be built, Moelven employed a completely new and untested assembly technique.
ThermoWood products have undergone a special but environmentally friendly heat treatment process. The process gives the wood a number of new properties, such as transverse stability, with less cracking and splintering, in addition, the exterior products quickly get a great silver-grey patina.
