Half of the world’s population lives in cities. Sweco’s architects are equally experts at designing an entirely new Asian city and a small-town school. Whatever project, the focus is on creating ideal environments for people to live, work and thrive in the cities of tomorrow. By combining recognized expertise with a broad range of operations, Sweco’s architects offer a unique and comprehensive view in designing the buildings and landscape of the future.
Sweco proactively works to help create a socially sustainable society in which everyone, regardless of their physical ability, should have the same opportunity for involvement.
There are currently about one million people in Sweden with physical disabilities. Through the use of effective methods and tools, Sweco’s experts can plan physical environments that are more accessible for everyone. We possess a wide range of expertise and work with accessibility in buildings, outdoor environments, urban development, and in infrastructure and public transportation.
We have professionals who are certified experts in accessibly and who possess an intricate understanding of pedestrian assistance paths and spaces. We have developed an effective digital inventory method that allows our clients to conveniently visualise easily avoided outdoor obstacles. Accessibility expertise is in growing demand and we also offer customised training courses in the area. As an example, we train individuals who want to be authorised under the Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning’s TIL 2 programme: certification of experts in accessibility
