Building the future through circular data
In this Urban Insight report we highlight best practice and next practice tools to mine circular values in buildings, avoid emissions, save money and attract green capital.
What if you could save 3,600 tonnes of carbon emissions, or EUR 11.5 million, in a single building, or EUR 750 per square metre? That’s just what we did when we upcycled a warehouse in central Stockholm to create the Blique hotel. If we apply the same calculations to 1,000 similar European buildings, we could save more than EUR 11.5 billion. Imagine, what could you do with 11.5 billion euros? That would cover the investment needed to construct the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Dogger Bank, in the North Sea.
Solving the greatest societal challenges of our time is more relevant and inspiring than ever before.

Polar station modernisation project
Rothera Research Station, the Antarctic science hub of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), is in need of modernisation and will be transformed into a cutting-edge science and operations facility.
The ten-year project is a multidisciplinary undertaking that includes a wide scope of expertise. Several Sweco experts are part of a 20-person construction team that is carrying out the work.
Walkway and flood protection
For several years, Uddevalla has had problems with flooding from the Bäveån River due to rising sea levels and heavy rain. To future-proof the city and save the attractive environments along the water, they studied how a walkway with flood protection could be built – work that has proven to be challenging.
On track to lowering passenger emissions
Bergen Light Rail is a public transportation network solution that is seen as a key to minimising passenger traffic emissions in Bergen, Norway’s second largest city.
Sweco was commissioned in 2015 to oversee the planning and design of the Light Rail’s fourth phase; a new line between Bergen’s city centre and the suburb of Fyllingsdalen which will run above ground and through tunnels, and will also include the Light Rail’s first underground station.
