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.
Sustainable urban development often involves harnessing and reusing or enhancing existing environments and buildings, meaning our cultural environment. It involves an approach that is based on the site, man-made structures and people’s social and cultural conditions.
At Sweco, we operate in all fields of the cultural environment. From a broad level that includes landscapes and analyses of the cultural environment, to conservation plans and building preservation programmes, renovation and restoration, as well as the configuration of historical environments. Finding solutions and new areas of application based on the existing properties and qualities of environments and buildings, where demands for energy efficiency and accessibility are attentively met, are all part of today’s challenges.
To meet these challenges, Sweco has gathered an array of experts including antiquarians, architects, structural engineers, landscape architects and archaeologists. Based on client preferences and circumstances, Sweco assembles a team for each project that includes the relevant individual experiences and a custom of collaboration across traditional professional boundaries.
