About Us


Start here, go anywhere

Arup is one of the world’s largest, most respected names in the built environment. We’ve achieved this status by looking beyond the obvious while balancing creativity with logic and practicality with the aesthetically pleasing. Such an approach has resulted in world-renowned projects such as the Beijing National Aquatics Centre, Sydney’s Opera House and Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands® Integrated Resort.

We believe that greatness cannot be achieved through sameness so we evaluate potential team members by their thinking, creativity and ability to collaborate rather than their sex, nationality or religion. It’s a formula that’s proved sustainable for nearly 70 years and helped us live by our claim of ‘shaping’ a better world’.

What we’re about

In 1970, our founder Ove Arup, observed that, “it was possible to create an organisation that is human and friendly in spite of being large and efficient”. He was a man well ahead of his time just as his company is today. We are an independent organisation owned in trust for its employees and their dependants. It’s a visionary structure created around the welfare of its people rather stockholders. It also allows for a wonderful culture with employees happy to work cooperatively knowing that, in the long run, if they succeed everyone succeeds.
