Structural 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.
Steel structures allow us to create great, spectacular buildings, with high standards set by the architects’ designs. These structures are often part of major and extensive industrial projects. Visualising the structure as a whole and in its environment is often crucial to a project’s success.
We work exclusively with 3D modelling to create a digital model of all parts of the structure. Sweco introduced this method 20 years ago as a tool for steel structures. 3D design makes it easy to get an overall picture and ensure the quality of the project.
We also use advanced computer simulations to test-build steel structures before actual installation. This reduces on-site assembly time and greatly reduces the percentage of error during production.
