Arup has been present in Cape Town since 1965, playing a leading role in shaping the built environment both in the city and regionally. From 1 Thibault Square, once the tallest building in the city, to the reinvented Grain Silo Complex, our work has had a cultural legacy.
Our integrated engineering team and range of specialist consultants have unlocked some of the region’s most inspired designs. We provided precinct-wide sustainability consulting for the V&A Waterfront’s world class Silo District, along with a spectrum of specialised design services to each of the buildings, including the historic Grain Silo Complex retrofit. Our multidisciplinary building engineering contributed to a holistically sustainable youth and community centre in Khayelitsha, the Isivivana Centre.
Our renewable energy team is considered the Arup Global Centre of Excellence due to our considerable local technical design and advisory expertise. We have contributed to projects globally in locations as diverse as Australia, Turkey and Thailand.
