Scharc is a function- and cost-oriented building planning business with time efficient and flexible solutions to realize constructions with excellent designs. The group focuses on new building- and reconstructions mostly located in Sweden and has been working with urban design, housing, sports facilities, commercial and industrial estates. After the founding of Scharc Arkitektur in 2003, the Development and Building Information Technology departments were founded in 2011, which now form the Scharc Group.
Architecture | Scharc Arkitektur AB
”For us, the project is always at the heart of what we do. Together with all involved consultants, contractors, owners and users, we strive for the best end result, taking into account time, costs and the greatest possible value from a life cycle, user and owner perspective.” Sven Staiger, CEO Scharc Group
Within Scharc Arkitektur we focus on developing cost-efficient and high quality architecture that satisfies our clients demands. Scharc controls the entire project from analysis, through the planning process until the finished construction. All projects are developed with 5D building information models (BIM).
In the last decade, Scharc successfully worked with over 280 different projects which had a wide range from urban design and housing projects, over sports facilities to commercial and industrial estates. Some examples are infrastructure projects such as the metro depot “Norsborgsdepån” and “Högdalsdepån” for NCC and SL, industrial projects such as the intermodal terminal “Årsta” and schools such as “Brunnsängsskolan” in Södertälje, over 10 schools and sports halls in Nacka as part of “Nacka Strategisk Partnering”.
Real Estate Development | Scharc Development AB
Scharc Development works in the field of real estate development and develops projects in Sweden with a focus on the Stockholm metropolitan area. Depending on the demands, Scharc can manage projects or accompany development processes as a service developer. The department offers several services within the development process, beginning with the project initiation over the project evaluation to the project management.
We create a feasibility analysis at an early project stage to evaluate the chances and risks of the project and create the foundation for future decisions. Another important aspect is the site acquisition followed by the building permission, which demands good communication between all project stakeholders. Therefore Scharc strives for ongoing communication between all affected project stakeholders and clear and comprehensible visualized results.
If the feasibility analysis and the profitability calculations are positive and the client decides to realize the project, Scharc can run the project management. The focus of this project stage is on the permanent quality, cost and time management, to realize projects on time and within their project budgets.

Building Information Technology | Scharc BIT AB
We work with digital twins. The aim is to reduce life-cycle costs and environmental impacts as much as possible while maintaining efficient use of the building and a high quality user experience.
We work with digital twins linked to the BIM model and work processes, that complement gut-driven decisions with processes based on data collected throughout the lifecycle of the building.
Scharc Building Information Technology helps the whole Scharc Group to improve its skills in BIM by using the best tools available. Furthermore Scharc programs its own GDL objects for a better application in Archicad. Scharc BIT now even is developing its own information and communication tools.
From the very beginning of the project, we build 3D computer models to work with. This method allows us to visualize the entire project realistically, as well as provide solid calculations for required construction modules and materials. Along with our partners, we deal with energy studies and cost analysis in the early stages of a project. We establish five-dimensional information models (Building Information Model, BIM) including reality-based data and objects. The last step in our evolution is our starting to develop our own communication platform.
