Los Angeles, world capital of the entertainment industry, is also a global center of international trade, aerospace, technology, finance, telecommunications and manufacturing.
Arup’s contributions to the greater Los Angeles area cover a broad range of building uses and design specialities. The LAX Central Utility Plant incorporates innovative design that will save the Los Angeles World Airports nearly $20m in capital costs. The new Broad Contemporary Art Museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art includes Arup-designed daylighting and seismic systems.
Outside of Los Angeles, the Arup engineered San Jose City Hall was the first city hall in the US to achieve LEED® Platinum for Existing Building and the office is leading the way in sustainable masterplanning in China with the COFCO Eco-Valley Development.
