Our advice delivers because we merge business sense with technical strength.
Organisations performing at their best are swift to respond to opportunities and challenges. To make the right decisions, they require sharp insight into trends. To be ready, they must see their resources and risks clearly.
At Arup, we help businesses improve performance by giving them the complete picture. To do so we combine strategic commercial thinking with precise, hands-on experience of processes, assets and people.
Clear, practical advice
We connect and decipher the information businesses need to thrive. For a client exploring opportunities in the energy sector, for instance, we deliver practical advice by integrating world-class transactions advice and corporate finance consultancy and energy strategy. Behind our strategic advice is the technical depth of Arup specialists who have designed and delivered major projects for the entire energy chain – from supply to transmission and demand.
Our people combine the management calibre of a blue chip consultancy with the ability to speak in technical and operational terms. By doing so, we can act as translators between financial institutions and technical experts, for example, to give our clients clearer insight – for a competitive edge.
Solutions that work
Joined-up thinking delivers pragmatic solutions. Arup’s programme, project and cost managers work alongside designers and technical specialists to deliver outcomes that merge the best in business sense, creativity and innovation.
Our specialists in IT and communications strategy use their practical expertise to plan for success in mission-critical facilities such as data centres. Our resilience, security and risk consultants marry protective intelligence and design to shape more secure assets. And our operations consultants have the hands-on experience necessary to truly align technology, people and processes in operational readiness programmes that get even the most complex projects – from airport terminals to hospitals – up and running smoothly.
When we consult in organisational behaviour, we do not rely on platitudes about transformation and change. Instead, Arup’s behavioural psychologists tailor employee engagement and leadership development programmes that deliver real outcomes because they draw on our real-world experience of our clients’ market sectors. Likewise, in knowledge management we combine change management capability with skills in technology infrastructure and design to produce focused, workable knowledge-sharing systems.
Future uncertainties, from economic shifts to climate change, are complicating the business landscape. Arup’s economics and planning consultants break down traditional silos of thinking to help organisations consider their future drivers of change and plan ahead with greater confidence.
But our job doesn’t end there. We then help clients make stronger connections between strategy and action, driving change. In areas such as climate change resilience, our consultants help determine the priorities (carbon management, for instance) then suggest the means to achieve them (improving building performance or managing water and energy use, for example).
