Sustainable Buildings

Our sustainable buildings consultancy team consists of chartered engineers, façade specialists, passive house designers and award-winning embodied carbon experts who draw on Sweco’s Scandinavian heritage and international expertise to shape our truly holistic approach to sustainable design.

Design for Performance

From the concept stage, our building sustainability experts work with design teams and commercial clients to assess and advise on several key aspects including site appreciation, solar analysis, façade optimisation, daylight- and glare analysis, fabric thermal performance, natural ventilation and overheating analysis, whole lifecycle analysis, and operational energy assessments.

Our modeling team is a market leader in digitalisation. Adopting ‘Design for Performance’ methodology and working with our consultants to create Digital Twin models, they can analyse and influence building services system selections and controls to optimise whole building systems and minimise operational energy – including Smart Buildings innovation. Our experts advise both clients and design teams on the most cost-effective and low-carbon systems that will align with their aspirations, whilst satisfying regulatory targets and project budgets.

We’re proud to have won a range of best-in-class BREEAM awards every year since 2013


The increased industry focus on embodied material carbon and the need to achieve the RIBA 2030 Climate Emergency targets has seen our team drive key sustainability design decision-making and steer procurement direction for sourcing of materials in many of our building designs. Our Benchmarking Assessors have delivered some of the highest sustainability ratings (BREEAM Assessments, WELL Standard Assessments, Passivhaus Assessments and Home Quality Mark).

Our three pillars of sustainabile buildings


Creating productive environments.


Reducing consumption of non-renewable resources and minimising waste.


Cutting energy usage, ensuring high retention and productivity of employees.

Our sustainability champions work alongside our building services and structural engineering consultants to define clear sustainable goals and targets influenced by the UN Sustainability Goals.
