About us

At Arup, we design and deliver groundbreaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we’re a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.

When thoughtfully designed, mechanical services such as ventilation, heating and cooling can go unnoticed. Yet these essential services help make offices and apartments attractive to tenants, and hotels appealing to guests. At their best they are resource-efficient, easy to control and maintain, and adaptable.

Arup’s mechanical engineers provide simple and elegant solutions that enhance the long-term value of properties. Our experience encompasses passive and energy-efficient solutions that contribute to sustainable building design, and appraisal and retrofit for better performing services in existing buildings.

We integrate mechanical, electrical and public health engineering to deliver complete building services for projects of all types – from a 12-acre LEED Platinum campus for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in Seattle, to Doha’s first fully underground substations, or an award-winning university gallery in Cork.
