Arup has confirmed its confidence and commitment to Malaysia with the recent move to a new office and recruitment of additional specialists to support its expanded services in Kuala Lumpur.
Best known for its engineering and design expertise, Arup is broadening its technical capabilities and advisory services with a team of more than 300 people in Malaysia.
The Malaysian team has a strong track record of delivering successful projects including the KVMRT rail line, the Subterranean Penang International Convention & Exhibition Centre (SPICE) and the Rawang Bypass.
It is currently working on the country’s tallest (and world’s second highest) building Merdeka 118, Bangsar 61 underpass development, the new IMU Hospital, Lot LMN at KLCC and the complex Lorong Kuda road upgrade, tunnel and underpass.
“Investing in a new workplace marks the beginning of a new chapter for Arup in Malaysia,” said Malaysia Leader Lawrence Yeap, noting that the firm has been operating in the country since 1964.
“Recognising the changing business landscape, we are broadening our skills, delivering engineering and advisory services necessary for every stage of a project in the evolving urban landscapes across the country.”
