Sweco Belgium strengthens its buildings and infrastructure offering through an Asset Deal with Arcade Concept Engineering from Lokeren. This engineering firm specialises in stability studies, and the design and monitoring of construction projects. The broad portfolio includes leading private and public buildings as well as civil engineering structures.

"The motivated engineers and draughtsmen at Arcade Concept Engineering have a stellar reputation in the field of construction projects. We have already experienced this during the assignments in which we were involved together, such as the Administrative Centre in Beveren, the A11 highway, and the hospital complex and the parking area for AZ Sint-Maarten. This beneficial collaboration has now resulted in integration within Sweco. With our combined forces, we will be able to tackle any multidisciplinary and complex construction project, regardless of scale or location," says Erwin Malcorps, Managing Director of Sweco Belgium.

The Arcade Concept Engineering engineering firm was founded in 2009 by Cretien De Cauwer. The company specialises in design and stability assignments in various construction segments. The passionate team of 12 employees currently supervises various new construction and renovation projects from the office in Lokeren.

“With Sweco, we recognise the same commitment to providing the most sustainable solution for each project. This is especially true for assignments where the engineering work is an important, decisive factor in the elaboration of the aesthetic vision. Our added value lies primarily in our flexibility and creativity in design. We are very pleased that our close-knit team will be able to further expand the quality and service to our customers under the Sweco umbrella," says Cretien De Cauwer, business manager at Arcade Concept Engineering.
