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.

Site investigations and remediation

Due to the massive influx of people to cities, the demand for housing and employment is rising. This often results in former industrial areas making way for attractive new public spaces. Before people can live in these areas, and in the interest of ensuring a healthy environment, environmental investigations must be conducted and the soil, groundwater and buildings may require remediation.

Sweco’s projects often comprise both minor and large-scale environmental investigation and the subsequent risk assessments for public health and the surrounding environment. We always conduct investigations and risk evaluations ahead of potential remediation measures. Projects involving contaminated areas are often complex and encompass several areas of expertise. We plan and conduct environmental investigations and remediation and manage contacts with the relevant environmental authorities to insure our customers the most cost-effective environmental solutions.

Sweco can assist in:

  • Analysing soil and groundwater as part of the investigations of building sites, infrastructure projects and other projects requiring excavation works
  • Soil and groundwater studies for Danish authorities (state, regions and municipalities) related to the Danish environment laws and for private-sector companies wishing to outsource their obligation to conduct an environmental investigation
  • Contamination investigations and risk assessments of soil and groundwater
  • A wide range of other solutions in the areas of soil and groundwater
