Building Sustainability

Our sustainability 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.

From the concept stage, we seek to work with design teams and our 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 life cycle analysis, and operational energy assessments.

Design for Performance

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. 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.

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 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).

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