Urbanism

“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

Strategic Planning and Policy Design

An enthusiastic team of urban designers, spatial planners, traffic planners, and natural and environmental experts are working together on the qualitative, sustainable development and arrangement of space. This is done based on the formulation of an inspiring vision together with a solution focused approach. In urban areas where all developments come together, changes follow each other quickly. Seeing the cohesion in this occurs in the foreground of our approach. Sweco formulates policy views at all levels and links these to the insights from strategic research in its areas of work. This way we’re able to propose deliberate and future-oriented choices.
