A key element in a city’s attractiveness is the ability of its residents to travel safely and efficiently. Sweco’s infrastructure experts have what it takes to design transport systems that simplify people’s everyday lives. By designing everything from roadways, railways and underground metros to bridges and travel centres, we improve accessibility in tomorrow’s communities and cities.
In growing cities, it is important to harness and develop areas that lie underground. Growing cities require the development of fast and convenient transport services in urban and high-speed transport routes. This often involves major infrastructure and urban development projects, with structural engineering solutions that are meant to facilitate everyday life for people, in the form of greater and more fluid traffic flows, for example.
Designing road and railway tunnels imposes exacting standards on engineering expertise and safety awareness. Sweco Energoproekt’s team of specialists includes civil engineers on rock mechanics, civil engineers on geotechnics, geologists and structural engineers. We also possess expertise in civil engineering, with an emphasis on hydropower plants and related underground facilities: pressure tunnels, caverns, etc.
Pursuing construction projects underground imposes good knowledge of geotechnical conditions and high requirements for precise design. That is why we perform services both at the stage of investigation of ground and geological conditions as well as during design: design using 3D imaging, static and dynamic analyses and constructive solutions. This provides our customers with a better basis for decision-making and a greater understanding of the end product.
