MEDITE Case Study: Savalen Gingerbread House

December 2018

MEDITE Case Study: Savalen Gingerbread House

Quite possibly one of the most unique building projects that MEDITE SMARTPLY has been involved in for a long time, the Savalen Hotel and Spa’s life-sized gingerbread house in the Norwegian mountains sets a precedent for creativity and effervescent fun - no matter the time of year.

Nestled alongside one of Eastern Norway’s stunning lakes, amidst a landscape that could have inspired a Tolkien novel, the now famous gingerbread house reflects the vivacious nature of Savalen, and caters to those with a keen sense of adventure. For 70% of the year, this scenic part of the world is draped in glistening snow, transforming it into a winter wonderland. With temperatures averaging between -6.8 and 0 degrees Celsius, it is the perfect place for the magical gingerbread house.

The most magic element, however, might just be that this good-enough-to-eat masterpiece is actually uses MEDITE TRYCOYA EXTREME (MTX) for its outer decoration.

The bracing climate proved to be the perfect opportunity for the revolutionary outdoor MDF panel to showcase its unique capabilities. Savalen’s Managing Director Per Morten Hektoen had been searching for the perfect materials to bring this project to life, and eventually found them on recommendation from Norwegian wholesalers, Fritzøe Engros AS.

Seventy panels of 18mm thickness MTX were used, chosen for their moisture resistance, durability and stability. As the panels can be finished in a variety of different colours and textures, they were an obvious decision to give the structure that all important, ‘biscuit-beautiful’ finish.

MTX panels are known for their outstanding ability to retain their shape and consistency when faced with wet and temperature-changing conditions, allowing them to be used where previously only materials such as concrete, plastics or metals could be, as well as being quick and easy to install.
It also was important that a wood-based panel be used for this project to set an example and a high standard for environmental product use. Norway has been a pioneering country for environmental sustainability over the last decade and more. In using a material that will have the lowest environmental impact compared to concrete, steel, vinyl siding tile, fibre cement siding or stucco, Savalen continue to uphold this standard.

MTX is guaranteed to last up to 50 years in external environments, and untreated, it is also recyclable when it comes to the end of its life. It produces less solid waste both during its manufacture and on site. Executive Director Maren Hernes, of carpenters Historiske Mobler, who worked on the MTX panels explained: “It would have taken much longer and would have cost considerably more to manufacture the decorations from other materials. It was also very easy to work with; like regular MDF, but denser and much more durable, making it ideal for our winters.”

This allowed Savalen to very quickly get back to doing what it does best: creating adventure. "Our goal is to create a real adventure destination here," said Per Morten Hektoen, “This was our first project with MTX, and it will be surely not the last.”
The finished building is 366 square metres in size, 12 meters high, with three floors including a tower, where a lounge overlooks the picturesque winter scenes below. There are 14 bedrooms and a large social kitchen with seating capacity for 28 people.

Please don’t despair the lack of actual gingerbread.

MEDITE SMARTPLY WINS EXCELLENCE IN MARKETING AT TTJ AWARDS 2018

November 2018

MEDITE SMARTPLY WINS EXCELLENCE IN MARKETING AT TTJ AWARDS 2018

MEDITE SMARTPLY, producer of innovative timber panel products, has been recognised at the TTJ Awards for its marketing campaign “Work Smarter, Not Harder.”

The winning campaign focused on raising awareness of SMARTPLY’s range of speciality OSB products in their specific markets: SMARTPLY SITEPROTECT, for site-hoarding contractors, SMARTPLY DRYBACKER, for drylining contractors installing a pattress, and SMARTPLY FR, a flame retardant OSB panel for roofing contractors.
After considerable market research, the strategy that was agreed upon was to produce audience-specific content in a digital-led multichannel campaign which would aim to inform and excite.

The amount of insight gained greatly informed the creative aspect of the campaign. The comic book strip style decided upon allowed MEDITE SMARTPLY to communicate complex topics in an engaging, accessible format via print, video and whiteboard animation. This method enabled the company to interact with its professional target audience without telling them how to do their job.

Stuart Devoil, Head of Marketing and Brand at MEDITE SMARTPLY commented: “We are delighted to have won this award; thank you to TTJ for the honour! This award is a credit to the whole team who have worked tirelessly over the past year on this campaign, as well as ensuring other products are communicated effectively, ensuring an even share of voice.
“We are continuing to run the Work Smarter Not Harder campaign as well as entering the discussions on wellness and air quality, and how our products can help architects and contractors to achieve the highest standards of living.”

The TTJ Awards, now in its 22nd year, aims to showcase the timber sector as a modern, forward looking industry. It features categories voted for by qualifying voters within the timber sector, as well as categories judged by independent panels. The nominees and winners were announced at prestigious ceremony at the InterContinental Park Lane, London on 21st September 2018.

The TTJ Awards have become an established networking date within the timber industry, often attended by high profile hosts and guest speakers.
