Intelligent design is the mechanism through which sustainable principles are translated into practical, cost-efficient solutions that satisfy the aspirations of owners, occupiers and future generations. With several of our buildings achieving BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ ratings and being recognised by BRE as the BREEAM Company of the year for 2014, 2016 and 2017 and BREEAM/ecobuild Champion in 2018, Sweco UK is a leading civil engineering consultancy in sustainable design. Kartik Amrania was appointed as a UK BREEAM Assessor of the Year in 2016, and Zuzana Spicova is the UK BREEAM Assessor of the Year in 2018. Our consultants are recognised industry leaders in promoting and offering practical and sustainable design. Every project is evaluated on its own merits to ensure optimal solutions are adopted. We evaluate the feasibility of passive design measures to reduce environmental impact and analyse all year round thermal and visual comfort using virtual models in conjunction with industry best practice and client standards. Through the use of life cycle assessment tools, we also help clients make informed decisions in their strategic investment planning and asset management processes. Additionally, Sweco have qualified LEED & WELL accredited professionals (APs) located within all of its major European offices.
We are mindful of the need for conservation and the sustainable use of natural resources in building design, whilst minimising environmental pollution. From optimised structures to the generation of energy from waste, our engineers are involved in delivering low-carbon sustainable solutions. We are proud to have been awarded our third BREEAM Assessor Company of the Year Award and of our involvement in Bloomberg’s new European HQ, which has achieved many UK firsts in building design along with the highest ever BREEAM rating for an office building. Our expert knowledge is enhanced by the specialist capabilities of our environmental consultants, both in the UK and in the rest of Northern Europe.
