In current urban society, the need for sustainably and cost-efficiently designed infra services is higher than ever before. Sweco’s experts design urban and industrial areas, as well as traffic systems, to ease the everyday life of people. Safety, sustainable development and usability go hand in hand in our design. We are one of the largest operators in Finland in infrastructure, mobility, and city planning, and the leading railway transport. We design everything from street and rail projects to bridges, as well as urban and industrial sites like market squares, parking and industrial areas, terminals, and harbours. We can improve mobility in future communities and cities through our extensive planning, which considers the entire life span of the site. This also includes preparing for eventual changes in conditions and amounts of traffic in the future. We carry out our projects efficiently using the latest tools, and we aim to produce the best value for money, whilst not compromising on safety.
Bridges and other engineering structures are demanding sites for planning. We seek the best overall economic solution for demanding engineering structures in cooperation with the customer, not only in terms of cost alternatives, but from the perspectives of innovation, safety, and life span.
We also take into account the safety of others using the route and the unobtrusive operation of traffic during construction in our construction and repair planning solutions. We have participated in the development of bridge moving methods which allow unobtrusive traffic since the 1980s.
Our core competence lies in the planning of structures related to railways throughout the various phases of their life span. Railways are often constructed in tight conditions and difficult geotechnical environments, but no site is too demanding for our planners. We also carry out risk assessments at all our sites.
