Accoya and Medite Tricoya Cladding used in residential construction innovation


Creativity Unleashed

Creativity Unleashed

Two of Norway’s young entrepreneurs have formed an innovative response to the demand for student accommodation in Norway, by transforming shipping containers into residential flats framed with Accoya wood and clad with Medite Tricoya MDF. Magnus Øgård Meisal and Kristoffer Sørstrønen fashioned the idea.

MyBox is a pre-fabricated box constructed with low-maintenance Accoya and Medite Tricoya modified wood products, which protect the residential units from the harsh effects of the external environment and together create an excellent U-value rating and thermal performance. The accommodation solution is assembled in a matter of days, and once constructed, is approved as a permanent building.

“We wanted to build homes in a simplified way, similar to the way you might build with Lego, and shipping containers seems the obvious starting point. Accoya and Medite Tricoya are fantastic, high performance products to construct and clad the containers with, offering 50 years warranty for durability and stability which is industry leading. The impeccable environmental credentials and natural aesthetics of both products add to their credibility, making them the perfect and preferred materials to use in construction.”
