High-quality and liveable urban development form one of the most significant challenges for our society. Together with its clients and stakeholders, Sweco Belgium is building on sustainable urban living and working environments of tomorrow. Under the heading Urban.Habitat we offer services and commitment to focusing on the design of ideal environments, allowing people to live, work, travel and relax in the city and the landscape of tomorrow. The key process in this is our integrated approach. This is made possible owing to the wide availability of expertise and knowledge within our group. Urban Habitat provides a comprehensive vision for the design of cities and landscapes of the future. This with respect for the heritage of towns, villages and landscapes and with a commitment to promote economic growth, social development and inclusive welfare.
Addressing infrastructure in an urban or rural context always requires a strong interdisciplinary approach. Apart from the technical feasibility of the solutions, it is social acceptance, spatial and landscape integration and high-quality design that are important. We regard infrastructure projects as integrated projects in which a functional design is embedded in a landscape design and in mobility focused on safety and sustainability. In addition to the comprehensive efforts of our traffic engineers, landscape and urban planning experts, Sweco also takes on the project management. This is a critical success factor for the social feasibility and smooth running of all procedures.
