A key element in a city’s attractiveness is the ability of its residents to travel safely and efficiently. Sweco’s infrastructure experts have what it takes to design transport systems that simplify people’s everyday lives. By designing everything from roadways, railways and underground metros to bridges and travel centres, we improve accessibility in tomorrow’s communities and cities.
Before digging the shovel into the ground, it is wise to know what the ground is composed of. Knowing the geotechnical conditions of the ground is fundamental to all safe design work.
Sweco’s geotechnical engineering experts know most everything about the technical properties of the rock and soil, as well as what structures are most suitable for different conditions. Using various types of geotechnical investigations, we can determine the properties of the soil or rock and ensure safe and cost-effective design work.
We work with laying foundations and methods for foundation and ground reinforcement for everything from residential and industrial construction projects, to bridges, ports and piers. We are also highly knowledgeable about ground movements, from minor subsidence to major landslides, and perform stability and subsidence analyses.
