Building Engineering

Building 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. Sweco takes a holistic approach and ensures that load-bearing structures harmonise with the building’s design and intended indoor environment - whether we are dealing with a new build, reconstruction or renovation.

Building Information Modelling

Great benefits can be achieved when incorporating BIM (Building Information Modelling) into design- and project management tasks: Increased constructability, a streamlined operational phase and an abundance of added value, especially economical.

Using integrated tools for analysis, simulation and visualisation right from the very early stages of a project allows us to study how infrastructure, buildings and cities will work in reality. Among other capabilities, BIM involves studying the best design for a building aiming to be environmentally friendly, while also being exciting in sheer architectural terms. It also involves optimising a space based on how people actually move in buildings or traffic. 

We use BIM to improve the level of information in the initial phases and ensure that no information is lost during the project. This improves the possibility to see solutions, making ideal choices and minimize the need for adjustments after the completion of the project. By visualizing and communicating in 3D, all parties can get an improved insight of the project, which ensures strong interdisciplinary collaboration. 

Sweco can assist in:

  • Ensuring the quality and constructability through an efficient process
  • Optimising the collaboration between the various parties
  • Ensuring the best solutions by simulating and visualizing the project
  • Ensuring focus on sustainability and operations to improve the overall project economy
