Stemming from Sir Ove Arup’s roots and education in Denmark, Arup has a special affinity here. We provide a collaborative and holistic approach to complex projects, described by Ove in his 1970 key speech as ‘Total Architecture’ – or the notion that great things can result when "all relevant design decisions have been considered together and have been integrated into a whole by a well organised team." We are a growing office of 30 staff based in Copenhagen and collaborating with colleagues globally to bring international expertise to local projects.
We have been delivering landmark projects in Denmark for many years – whether as lead consultant for the joint venture designing the Øresund Bridge, or as lead engineers for the Copenhagen Arena. We are also working with Copenhagen Airport, UNOPS, Vejdirektoratet and others, providing thoughtful, clear-sighted, and innovative solutions.
