Sweco’s highly regarded building services engineering consultants and mechanical, electrical and public health specialists help both commercial and residential clients across the UK transform their developments from vision to sustainable, wellbeing-focused reality – with a fusion of innovative aesthetics as well as sustainability performance at the heart of everything we do.

Leaders in building performance solutions

Sweco’s building performance solutions represent a fusion of all our specialist consultancy services to optimise how a building ‘lives and breathes’. As market leaders in sustainable, high-quality building services design and engineering, we are also recognised for our expertise in carbon reduction and management, lifecycle analysis and infrastructure planning.

Sweco’s façadefire engineering and sustainability teams work cohesively to provide an all-encompassing proposition that allows clients in all sectors to achieve longevity, cost-efficiency and reliability across the sites we plan and build for them. From vertical transportation to premise-wide building network engineering and smart buildings consultancy, our teams can also integrate the latest digital technology (including smart buildings technology) into any aspect of your building asset portfolio for long-term performance.

We understand that the best building services systems sympathetically blend architecture, sustainability and engineering. And this in turn can create environments that excite, are healthy, promote wellbeing and increase productivity.

Sustainability first

By modelling, planning, designing and implementing efficient – and experiential – systems for key elements of a building’s infrastructure, we bring ‘Sustainable Design’ to life with low-carbon materials and methodologies at the heart of our approach.

We are at the forefront of sustainable building design seeking to work collaboratively within design teams to embed sustainable solutions from the outset. We pride ourselves on our continuous professional development and the long-lasting relationships we have built with suppliers, which in turn enable us to innovate and deliver creative and pioneering designs with emerging technologies.

Our ability to design building services systems the integrate sympathetically with the building architecture, whilst maintaining a clear focus on reducing operational energy and materials usage through smart engineering practices, sets us apart as true society-transformers.

Healthy buildings and spaces

With a reputation for innovative design solutions, our building services engineering consultants are committed to delivering efficient outcomes that positively contribute to the environment. We aim to create healthy buildings and healthy spaces, that benefit the people who will live and work within them. Our success in technical innovation involves working closely with academic, industry and research institutions.

Sweco is proud to have partnered with the Better Building Partnership (BBP) since 2019 and is championing Design for Performance-processes across our projects. Building upon our digital offering of Revit for spatial coordination, BIM and Smart Building System Integration, we are also creating ‘Digital Twins’ of our MEP systems to steer design decision-making and minimise operational energy usage.

Whole Life Cycle Analysis via our specialist Embodied Carbon Team is helping to shape our Building Services Design Solutions.  Responding to the RIBA Climate Emergency Targets, we seek to develop our designs with an emphasis to reduce material, early consideration to circularity and helping to inform our clients to make clear decisions when it comes to the carbon impact of their development.
