A history of innovation

Our people are independent by nature, with the confidence to take on some of the world’s most challenging projects. For over 75 years we have nurtured pioneers and original thinkers, becoming a welcome home for the creative and ambitious. From concert halls that set new standards of acoustic detail to designing the physical connections between nations, ours is a story of relentless innovation. 

Maintaining its founder’s individuality and spirit, Arup today is a place where talented people can pose difficult questions and chart a better course. Owned by its members, the organisation’s commercial independence underpins its commitment to developing sustainable development outcomes across the built environment.
