Woodsafe took home the “Project of the Year” award at the Wood Protection Association (WPA) Awards 2020. For the sixth year, the award has become a popular annual event in the UK as a relevant and important part of the wood industry.
Mjöstornet in Brummundal Morway is with 85,4 m above the sea level the worlds tallest wooden building. The award Project of the Year at WPA:s ceremony was taken home by Woodsafe Timber Protection for the flame-retardant impregnated wooden façade for exterior use.
