A prime retail destination and cultural centre, Leeds is the engine for growth and employment at the heart of an increasingly prosperous region. Leeds city centre is set for major changes over the next few years with HS2 being the catalyst for visionary developments such as the Southbank, Holbeck urban village together with the development of an innovative integrated public transport network.
Working closely with bodies such as the City Council, The University of Leeds, and the West Yorkshire and York Combined Authority, Arup’s involvement in the future development of the Leeds City region is centered around a commitment to helping shape sustainable communities.
Arup’s work includes working closely with Yorkshire Water on some of its largest capital schemes and water infrastructure as well as on environmental projects such as Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme and City of Leeds Residual Waste Management. The firm’s impact is visible through developments such as First Direct Arena, Master planning for HS2 and the Tetley Refurbishment.
In neighbouring Bradford, Arup supported the award winning design of Bradford City Park - a six acre public realm space in the heart of the city containing the largest man-made water feature in the UK.
