Buildings and other structures are dependent on having lifelong security both above and below ground. Sweco's specialists know what is required in order to realise sustainable, functional building, industrial and construction projects. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach to each and every project and we ensure that economic considerations, the environment and people are taken into account in an integrated manner.
Knowledge and experience about geoscience and geology are much in demand. Our clients should always benefit from our knowledge of landscapes and risk assessment in order to secure the community development, in accordance to the pre-given nature conditions.
Sweco's experts undertake geological mapping, avalanche/landslide risk assessments, avalanche/landslide protection and preliminary investigations, etc. We also carry out geological engineering and hydrogeological and geological environment ground surveys.
Our work is linked to transport projects, municipal planning, municipal monitoring of avalanche/landslide risks and public/private building projects. We have prepared geological reports for several major construction and transport projects.
Sweco's geologists number among the very few consultants used by the The Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) for identifying the risks associated with avalanches/landslides in the national hazard mapping.
