Smart ideas with a social purpose

Arup came to Australia in 1963 to undertake the structural design of the Sydney Opera House and we now work from seven offices across four key areas of influence: cities, connectivity, health, resources. Our desire to shape a better world ensures our clients receive smart design ideas with a social purpose, which will have a positive influence for current and future generations. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history of our region, and Arup's Indigenous Employment Strategy (PDF, 3MB) articulates our actions to broaden employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians into, and within, the firm.

    Arup project celebrated at Queensland Spatial Excellence Awards

    Part of a Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) initiative, this project aimed to identify priority investment locations for implementation of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) treatments throughout Queensland. Tasked with developing a framework able to model the impacts to road users from unplanned road closure events such as floods, crashes, landslides and bushfires, the Arup team utilised GIS as the key technology platform.  This enabled summary statistics to be compiled spatially for 2,200 individual road segments throughout Queensland.
