Sustainable Development and Planning

Sweco consultants focus on maximising the potential of a development and its environment, for the people who will work or live in the buildings created.

Achieving this requires the built environment team to demonstrate their flair and ability to add value with practical, cost efficient and sustainable solutions.

Our experts work with clients to understand the needs of the site and its surroundings. We liaise with their client's partners to create imaginative solutions that overcome the challenges of financial, technical or regulatory restrictions.

In order to maximise potential right from the earliest stages of a project through to completion, we offer consulting and engineering design services in the urban landscape from our geo-environmental, water, utilities, landscape, development, transportation, planning, structural engineering and building services divisions.

Sweco are winners of numerous awards; most recently for Best Concept Design (2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village), a development which successfully secured an Excellent BREEAM rating.
