Arup opened in Cairns in 1993 to improve its building and infrastructure across the North Queensland region.
Our projects include well known landmarks such as the Cairns Convention Centre, Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre and the Mamu Rainforest Canopy Walkway.
We have a reputation for being able to push the frontiers of thinking and design when finding sustainable solutions to the challenges posed by the tropics - extreme weather, the impact of tourism, and the ability of the built environment to coexist with the natural environment. We led the development of the Far North Queensland Water Strategy that will map out the provision of water resources for Cairns and the surrounding region up to 2050, while William McCormack Place is the ‘greenest’ building in the tropics.
