Water management

The environmental effects of communities and industry are controlled through the means of sustainable design, technology and legislation. Sweco’s water and environmental experts offer their water management services in reducing emissions, reutilising waste and ensuring that company operations meet all requirements. We also design solutions that will reduce the climate impact and help society adjust to climate change.

At Sweco, we are designing functional and sustainable water supply systems for communities and industry. We are also developing solutions that reduce climate impact and adapt society to climate change.

We offer pre- and general design of water supply and sewage and transfer pipelines, as well as construction planning for all locations, ranging from pressurised sewage networks in dispersed settlements to networks in city centres and extensive transfer lines.

We manage the planning of renovations carried out by both excavated and non-excavated methods and are aware of the challenges posed by the dense urban structure.

We prepare dimensioning and capacity examinations and modeling of water supply, sewage and storm water networks, as well as functional design and optimization of water transmission and pumping systems. In addition, we provide water management asset management services.

In addition to our water management design services, we provide supervision and construction services for construction and renovation sites within the network. We at Sweco are able to plan renovations that involve either digging or no-dig methods, and we are familiar with challenges brought on by dense urban structures.
