About us

Sweco plans and designs the sustainable communities and cities of the future. BUUR Part of Sweco is the leading multidisciplinary research, planning and design team within Sweco Belgium. Together we translate the joint ambition ‘Transforming Society Together’ into concrete visions and projects for the spatial transition.

It takes a village. Our society and living environment have become very complex and the challenges are urgent. More than ever, it is absolutely essential to develop the sustainable living environment of tomorrow; not just for ourselves but for our children and the planet. This takes ambition, creativity and innovation on every level. It is up to us to make it happen today, in consultation with all the stakeholders, across disciplines and industries and in different contexts.

Together, BUUR and Urban.Habitat constitute BUUR Part of Sweco. By merging the activities of Sweco and BUUR we are strengthening our expertise in terms of strategic and spatial planning, urban design, mobility, environment and ecology and the realisation of public spaces and landscapes. We stand for an integrated vision and collaboration between such disciplines as urban development, infrastructure, energy, construction and environmental technology.

Interdisciplinary approach
and expertise

The strong collaboration between the various divisions and expertises within Sweco boosts our agility. It gives us the opportunity to make a significant contribution to the transition towards a society that is at the same time energy and climate-neutral, healthy and safe. Our commitment is fuelled by our sincere conviction that a well-thought-out spatial planning has a positive impact on our behaviour and our society.

From design and research to policy support, project management and execution. With the services, we offer an integrated and effective response to the ambitions of public and private principals and partners.

About us

Partner in transition

BUUR Part of Sweco takes the lead in the research and development of integrated solutions to today’s social issues.

Our spatial transition programs function as a guideline. For each program we connect our specific knowledge, within Sweco’s diversity, to new integral insights. In projects and research we stand shoulder to shoulder with our clients and partners.

We consciously aim to lead by example in Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia. We explore new markets with innovative solutions. With the support of the international Sweco Group we position ourselves as a partner in Transforming Society Together, both in Europe and worldwide.
