Mjøstårnet. The world's tallest wooden building is exemplary fireproof. Outside Oslo in the town Brumunddal, you will find Mjøstårnet with 18 floors at a height of 85.4 meters. The tower has load-bearing structures in wood and the facade consists of prefabricated facade elements in wood.
The big challenge of a wooden building in this height is to create a construction that is sufficiently strong and that doesn’t sway too much in the wind. They chose a combination of a lattice construction and pouring of concrete in the upper floor decks. It gives the tower stability and contributes to a better sound insulation between the homes.
