Our building is up!

It is with pride and joy that we announce the completion of our MJF building at The Place

Thanks to architect Aslak Liimatainen for his work and vision for MJF, to TMS bygg for the construction and collaboration, to our advisory board member AK Dolven for her attention to detail and to our director Audhild Dahlstrøm for her precise and tireless work in managing the whole process to completion.
