Aker Tech House- In progress
The new 7 story office building at the Fornebue Porten in Olso, Norway.
The building will be an office for companies in the Aker group with social functions in the ground floor.
The design of the building is a more standard appearance on 3 sides where offices and other functions are situated.
Towards the square, the totally transparent glass box is giving a view of the processes taking place within and exposing the central staircase in gold that connects the ground floor to the roof terrace and is the central communication way in the building.

Scope of work
We deliver a complete external envelope, except for the roof coverings, with a timber frame, LS3000 Timber. The office façades are unitized timber curtain walls with external sun screens, which we believe are the first of their kind in the world.
The glass roofs are made of timber structures with the LS3000 Link roof application. The main “Frontfasade” has a primary timber structure that supports the concrete decks on vertical 400x400 columns and spans that hang on pre-tensioned rods. A secondary timber structure with a structural glazing system is installed on the front side.
