The Sweco Model


Our operating model is one of the keys to our success. We call it The Sweco Model and it has been our guiding star ever since the company was founded in 1958.


The four cornerstones

The Sweco Model is based on four cornerstones: client focus, the best employees, internal efficiency and a decentralised organisation. Our way of working has taken us from being a local business to becoming Europe’s leading architecture and engineering consultancy.

We have more than 60 years of profitable growth. The Sweco Model is a crucial part of our success.

The way we work and how we do business

Operating model

Client focus

Everything starts and ends with our clients and, to us at Sweco, all client projects are equally important. We strive to be the best at serving our clients, by close collaboration and being the most relevant partner for their needs.

Best people

To be the best at what we do, we need to have the best people in the business. Our people offer our clients the combination of global expertise and local understanding of their business and context, all to be our clients’ most relevant partner.

Internal efficiency

We value a culture of simplicity and should always challenge bureaucracy. We exist to serve our clients and focus resources on their projects.

Decentralised organisation

Our small, agile and empowered teams, tapping into Sweco’s total knowledge base and taking full business responsibility is the fundament of The Sweco Model.
