The “Mjøstårnet” Tower of wood in Brumunddal, opened with a great celebration on 15th March. Planning already started three years ago, and at the end of 2018 Stora Enso supplied 550 m³ of CLT from the facility in Ybbs. This material was used to construct the stairwell, the lift shaft, and the walls of the swimming pool of the record-breaking structure. As well as the solid wood product CLT from Stora Enso, also included LVL and their own product glulam in the load-bearing structure. The last phase of construction could in a way be described as “spontaneous”, because the building should originally have been 81 m high. But during the assembly of the topmost load-bearing elements it was decided at short notice to add to the height. The building put on an extra 4 m, and now stands tall and proud at a total of 85.4 m. This means that the world’s largest wooden building is no longer in Vienna but in Norway, as well as having the distinction of being a structure purely of wood, without a concrete core.
