We opened our first office in South Africa in Johannesburg in 1954, giving us a presence in the country for well over 60 years. Since then we have gone on to open offices in Durban and Cape Town.

Working from these three locations our teams have played a leading role in shaping the built environment throughout the region and beyond, delivering over 6,500 projects across the continent.

Due to our considerable local technical design and advisory expertise, our renewable energy team is considered the Arup Global Centre of Excellence, contributing to projects in locations as diverse as Australia, Turkey and Thailand.

Our expertise also encompasses integrated building design, transport and logistics planning; large infrastructure; property solutions; and energy strategies.
