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.
Our geotechnical engineering has a long history with railway construction and planning in Finland. We have been an active developer and forerunner in Finnish geotechnical engineering.
Our planners have years of experience in demanding geotechnical planning assignments in Finland and abroad, from road and track projects, as well as building construction projects.Our expertise covers route bearing courses, subgrade reinforcement, pipe and pumping station ditches, pipeline and pumping station foundations, buildability reports, groundwater reviews, bridge foundations, noise barriers, and retaining wall structures.
Our expertise in geotechnical engineering for buildings and industrial sites covers the following areas: foundation, ditches, subgrade reinforcement, dewatering lots and buildings, groundwater management, pile-driving, and excavation.
We aim to develop new and increasingly accurate geotechnical calculation and research methods, as well as ever better and more affordable subgrade construction methods.
Our planners have years of experience in demanding geotechnical planning assignments in Finland and abroad, from road and track projects, as well as building construction projects. Our operations aim to produce economic subgrade structure solutions customised for the needs of our customers.
We have access to the latest geotechnical planning and calculation software in the field.
