Planning and architecture

Half of the global population currently lives in towns and cities. Sweco's land planners and landscape architects are involved in developing everything from whole city blocks to smaller areas. Irrespective of the job, it is our aim to create optimal environments where people can live, work and thrive. We work closely with other specialists in order to realise solutions which take into account economic considerations, the environment and people.

Lighting and light design

Light affects how we perceive our surroundings. Correct lighting indoors and outdoors is essential to create a good impression.

Sweco has years of experience in planning lighting solutions for buildings, infrastructure, industry, cultural buildings and sports facilities. Our consultants focus on visual comfort and aesthetics. We work closely with the customer, landscape architects, plan architects and traffic planners to ensure an optimal result.

Indoors, well-planned lighting can create an exciting interaction between light and shadow and help accentuate a building's architecture. A visually stimulating working environment enhances job satisfaction. Well-planned lighting outdoors provides an environment that is easy to navigate and safer for its users.


Sweco is committed to creating sustainable and cost-efficient, high-quality installations. Our consultants provide principal lighting plans, visualisations, lighting concepts, emergency lighting plans and daylight calculations.
