Hong Kong is a thriving centre for finance and business.
Since Arup opened its office in Hong Kong in 1976, it has undertaken a huge range of projects throughout the territory that have contributed both to the skyline itself and to a host of transportation and public projects.
From Two International Finance Centre to the International Commerce Centre, Arup’s tall building expertise is continually helping the city to grow beyond the sky’s limit.
Arup’s strategic infrastructure projects include the 1.6 km long, cable-stayed Stonecutters Bridge across the Rambler Channel at the entrance to the Kwai Chung container terminals. The ground transportation centre at Hong Kong International Airport is the airport terminal for the Airport Railway that originates in Hong Kong’s central business district.
The firm is also involved in some of the largest cross-border projects that are helping to forge closer economic ties between Hong Kong, Macau and the mainland, including the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Corridor.
Other projects include the Discovery College, the Traffic Surveillance CCTV system, the New Development Areas, a new town development that was announced as one of the ten major projects by the chief executive in the 2007-08 policy address, and the HSBC data centre, the first data centre designed to Tier IV standard.
