Sweco UK

MLM (and MLM Building Control) is now part of the Sweco Group

MLM Group (including MLM Building Control) became Sweco in name and brand on 1 April 2021. Combining a wealth of MLM engineering talent with our existing international network of Sweco specialists, we‘re now proud to have 18,000 global experts who are transforming society together, every day.

Sweco acquired MLM Group in May 2019 and in April 2021, MLM finally joined the Sweco family as a perfect fit for enhancing the solutions our clients need.

A multi-disciplinary engineering and environmental consultancy and corporate approved inspector, MLM previously provided professional services in all aspects of Environment Planning and Development, Buildings and Infrastructure, Compliance and Sustainability to clients mainly located in the South of England.

This capability has added even more value to the diverse range of services provided by Sweco here in the UK and throughout Europe.

This is an exciting time for both Sweco and MLM customers, and we are determined to take a leading role within the UK and Ireland as we draw on an unrivalled pool of engineering, planning, compliance and environmental insight. By combining our specialist expertise, our client centric approach and our commitment to deliver innovative solutions, we are striving to become the consultancy of choice to even more.
