“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

Public space gives our society face, character and personality. It is the breeding ground for a healthy social fabric that binds and captivates communities. Sweco brings about high-quality streets, squares, parks and landscapes. These are important levers for contributing to a better living and working environment in a meaningful way. We therefore pay considerable attention to developing solutions that meet the needs of all users. This requires a respectful approach that fits in well with the expectations and values of residents, visitors and users.
