Architectural design of renovation – sustainability and cost-effectiveness through experience

Professional skills and deep experience play a key role in high-quality architectural renovation design. We offer sustainable and innovative architectural design for all kinds of renovation projects. We ensure that the presence of the past and the possibilities of the future are seamlessly combined in each location.

Multidisciplinary expertise in architectural design of renovation sites

At Sweco, we utilise our extensive and multidisciplinary expertise in the architectural design of renovation sites. We integrate green transition and energy efficiency perspectives into our plans and bring innovative ideas from our international network to the table. Our ability to combine the expertise and resources of the best experts from different fields guarantees the best possible result for our customers.

In our design, we carefully consider the construction methods and materials of different eras and always utilise the most modern repair methods. Our team anticipates future needs for the building, such as the effects of climate change.

We guide the design team towards common goals, ensuring that both large and small repair and space modification projects are carried out in an agile and reliable manner. If necessary, we act as a contact person with the authorities to coordinate the plans seamlessly.

Sustainable development in renovation architectural design

At Sweco, we focus on user-oriented, cost-effective and sustainable construction. In the architectural design of renovation, we emphasise responsibility and the most environmentally sustainable alternatives, which significantly reduces the environmental impact and carbon footprint of construction compared to new construction.

It is important to us that accessibility is at the core of architectural design. In the planning process, we also pay attention to safety and supporting a sense of community, and we take into account local needs and wishes.

Changes in purpose of use and adaptability

Buildings must be able to adapt to changing needs and demand. Changing the purpose of use is a key part of sustainable construction. Adaptability enables long-term and versatile use of buildings and reduces the need for new construction.

At Sweco, we focus on increasing the resilience of buildings and their ability to adapt to changing conditions. We design the interiors of buildings modularly so that they can be easily modified to suit different uses. The premises can be transformed, for example, from an office into apartments or from industrial premises into a cultural centre, which improves the occupancy rate of the building.

Renovation – sustainable renewal of the old building stock

Old buildings often have historical and cultural value, and their redevelopment helps preserve important sites and maintain local identity. From the perspective of the cityscape, it is essential that old and new buildings blend seamlessly into the urban environment, creating comfortable and safe spaces. A diverse urban structure enriches the urban landscape and promotes urban vitality.

The renewal of the old building stock has enormous potential to promote sustainable development. The renovation and renewal of old buildings reduces the need for new construction, which saves natural resources.

In renovation projects, it is essential to take into account not only the physical condition of buildings, but also their historical significance, the needs of current and future users, and environmental impacts. This ensures that the renewal work supports sustainable development in many ways and that the end result is the best both operationally and environmentally.
