Published by Clément Gaillard

81 meters and 18 floors, 350 meters and 70 floors, inflation is the side of wooden skyscrapers. With 81 meters of which 18 already built, the tower Mjøstårnet should retain some time the title of the tallest wooden building in the world, before being quickly exceeded, especially by Japanese monsters over 300 meters. Small tour of the owner.

Wood construction without a concrete elevation tower is now a reality, as evidenced by the Mjøstårnet tower built in Brumunddal, north of Oslo. Thought like a demonstrator, this one announces unbeatable construction times thanks to the pre-fabrication of the elements and the absence of external scaffolds for the construction. In addition, the fire resistance will be higher than that of traditional towers. Inside, we will find all that is possible today in a skyscraper in terms of mixed with a pool, offices, a hotel or apartments.

Beyond the announcement effect, this type of project allows to know more about the real carbon balance of this type of construction. Moelven , the manufacturer estimates to be able to reduce by 85% the carbon footprint of the supporting structure and by 30% the overall carbon footprint of the building. Data to take, of course, with precautions at the moment.
