“It takes a village to raise a child.” A well-known African saying that illustrates a universal value: that as a community, we are responsible for creating a pleasant, healthy living environment for our future generations. Developing ideas, sharing insights, cherishing our environment. This is how we work together, just like children learn when growing up. It takes a village. Our community and our living environment have become complex, its challenges urgent. It’s more important than ever to shape tomorrow’s environment along sustainable lines, for ourselves, our children and our planet. That requires ambition, creativity and innovation. It’s up to us to achieve this, together with everyone involved, across disciplines and sectors, in different contexts. BUUR and Sweco are combining therefor forces. By joining together as one, we can have a greater impact on our living environment. To its benefit. Together, we can translate the shared ambition of ‘Transforming Society Together’ into a concrete vision and projects. BUUR reinforces the interdisciplinary approach adopted by Sweco and will form a single team with Urban.Habitat. Together, we are setting the tone in Belgium, leading the way whilst keeping a view on Europe and our global goals. Discover our vision of urbanism at www.buur.be

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.
