Today’s cities have an unavoidable impact on the environment, but adverse effects can be minimised. Sweco's environmental experts help shaping the future of sustainable communities. We cover all aspects of the natural environment - from supervision, environmental assessments and waste management to contaminated areas. Likewise, we take the protection of both people and nature into account and adapt our solutions to climate changes.
Noise pollution is increasing in Denmark. We are building new houses, roads and businesses to such an extent that there will be fewer areas of Denmark where it is possible to experience silence and enjoy nature in peaceful surroundings. Therefore, our focus on noise is crucial, regardless of whether it involves infrastructural modifications, expanding manufacturing companies or the building of amusement parks and sports facilities.
Acoustica (Sweco’s acoustics department) assesses the impact of noise on the surrounding environment to give the client and/or the regulatory authority a clear idea of the noise pollution generated by the planned project. For large-scale construction projects, noise assessments are often included in an overarching EIA report (Environmental Impact Assessment).
Noise pollution from recreational activities also has a significant impact on the surroundings. This applies to noise from shooting ranges, motor sports and amusement parks, for instance. Sweco helps to ensure compliance with the noise-pollution conditions stipulated in the environmental approval.
