Woodsafe named winner of the "Wood Protection Project of the Year" award at the Wood Protection Association (WPA) Award Event 2020. The winning project is Mjøstårnet at lake Mjøsa (Norway's biggest lake) where this fantastic skyscraper extends 85.4 meters into the sky.

Woodsafe in collaboration with Woodify AS has delivered flame retardant treated (Exterior WFX) thermowood pine to the entire facade. Team Woodsafe is honored by this award and looks forward to next year's event featuring a portfolio of new super cool projects, along with an innovation no other FR facility in Europe can compare to. Many thanks once again for the WPA award, Project of the Year.

Award description: "This Award recognises the important role that wood protection technology plays in enhancing the durability or fire performance of wood used in a construction, engineering or landscaping application. Projects of any size in the UK or further afield must demonstrate how factory applied pre-treatments allow designers to confidently select wood as a sustainable, low environmental impact, material of choice."
