“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

The realization of projects requires a high degree of shared understanding between initiators, authorities and citizens. From their wealth of experience, Sweco’s process managers and project directors are able to methodically steer policy issues and development processes. We are specialized in dealing with communication and participation in regional and project development, infrastructure projects and arranging the natural and living environment. We understand each project as a change process and each time we set up a customised process with adequate interaction between the design and participation. Projects are tested for feasibility on a social, financial and technical level. We ensure the success rate of complex projects by using an up-to-date knowledge of tools and procedures.
