Structural engineering is largely a matter of security. Sweco’s structural engineers create buildings that are safe to live and work in and that stand the test of time. We take a holistic approach and ensure that load-bearing structures harmonise with the building’s design and intended indoor environment.
Our structural engineering creates significant added value in the development of a project. We utilise Sweco’s comprehensive expertise in the built environment and our internal network for the benefit of our customers, particularly in the development phase of a project.
Development work can constitute either an entry to a design competition or a concrete future investment. The need to understand the goals, functions and business operations of the customer, as well as those shared with the customer, is emphasised in the first phase of the project. Our experts will engineer creative and efficient structural engineering solutions to realise these goals.
Our expertise in various materials, structural systems and their adaptability, buildability and building physics are factors that must be taken into account, particularly in the development phase of a project. Energy efficiency and service life and life cycle assessments of structures also play a key role in a project’s development. Our engineering is always based on healthy and structurally safe solutions.
Our comprehensive expertise in the implementation, functionality and management of projects as well as the planning of the quality, costs and schedule make it possible to implement a profitable and competitive project. Our strong expertise and experience help us identify the risks involved in a project as well as support our customer in managing them.
