Norway to build world’s tallest timber building


Currently under construction on the edge of a lake in the small town of Brumunddal, an hour and a half’s drive north of Oslo, Mjøstårnet is claimed to be the world’s tallest timber building yet. Spanning 18 floors, the building will reach 80 metres high, and include apart- ments, an indoor swimming pool, hotel, offices, restaurant and communal areas. Construction is scheduled to be completed in December 2018. Moelven, a Scandinavian industrial group, will supply the timber constructions from local spruce forests required to construct the tower and the swimming pool area.


“The assembly and construction of the Mjøstårnet is nothing short of world-class engineering, and will be managed without external scaffolding, despite the complexity of working at height,” said investor behind the project Arthur Buchardt. “We are primarily using cranes and supplementing with lifts as needed. We have reached 33 metres to date, meaning we have 48 metres to go”.


The building will sit on the edge of the north eastern tip of the lake in the small town of Brumunddal, a 90-minute drive to the north of Oslo.


On the question of climate consciousness, Buchardt cites a project group established by Norwegian road authorities which inves- tigated the possibility of building the world’s longest timber bridge across Lake Mjøsa. “Their studies show that building

with wood instead of concrete can reduce


CO2 emissions by up to 30 per cent,” Buchardt said. Buchardt also believes that the


construction sector will evolve in a similar trajectory to that of the automo- tive industry, stating his belief that by 2032, “it will be illegal to produce and sell cars that run on fossil fuels.” Similarly, he expects that by this time climate friendly materials will become an international,

statutory standard. Buchardt hopes that his ambitions to build the world’s tallest timber building will inspire others. Through the creation of Mjøstårnet, Buchardt intends to demonstrate that it is possible to construct large, complex wooden buildings. The planned construction of the Norwegian Government quarter “can become a wooden landmark internationally,” says Buchardt.
