Today’s cities have an unavoidable impact on the environment, but adverse effects can be minimised. Sweco’s water and environmental specialists work with reducing harmful emissions, recycling waste and ensuring access to clean water. We also offer solutions that reduce climate impact and adapt society to a changed climate.
Sound influences people in myriad ways. Noises that are unwanted have an adverse effect on our health and quality of life. Yet conversely, well-designed and contemplated sound environments promote wellbeing and can elevate spaces to new dimensions.
In a pleasant sound environment, we reduce unnecessary and intrusive noises and instead harness the acoustics based on various needs and behaviours, thus creating a positive experience for those spending time in these environments.
Sweco’s experts help customers comply with public noise ordinances and create a pleasant sound environment. We develop cost-effective and appealingly designed acoustic solutions with the right effect for each particular case. We work with acoustic and sound design in various types of construction projects, and take various measurements and study sound, unwanted noises and vibrations, including industrial and traffic noises. The measurement methods employed by Sweco comply with Swedish standards and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency’s guidelines.
