Houston is a modern, diverse city, the fourth-largest in the US, with broad-based industries, an advanced technical workforce, and a vibrant, proud culture. Arup has been active in the Texas market since the late 1980s providing professional engineering services on a wide variety of projects in the energy, transportation, and buildings sectors.
The Houston energy team has an ever-growing range of energy-related projects and services, including project management, due diligence, consultancy and engineering design of oil, natural gas, and liquefied natural gas (LNG) infrastructure.
