In May 2019, Walmart announced plans to build its new headquarters campus in Bentonville, Arkansas. This month, they introduced the design team who will lead the project.

As a key part of this design team, Arup is providing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering services for the new Home Office. Our team brings decades of global experience to the project, ensuring that Walmart’s MEP systems will be well-integrated, thoughtfully designed, and resource-efficient throughout the campus.

Arup is very proud of our 16-year relationship with Walmart, during which time we have contributed to a variety of Walmart’s sustainability and energy efficiency initiatives. We are honored to be a valuable partner to Walmart and help design a New Home Office that embodies Walmart’s heritage while meeting its future needs. The new campus will deliver a welcoming, flexible, and sustainable workplace for current and future Walmart associates. ”

Shaun Landman Arup Principal and Project Director

In addition to Gensler, who will be the executive architect, Arup will join a design team that includes Miller Boskus Lack Architects, Sasaki, SWA Group, Walter P Moore, and CEI Engineering Associates, among others. 

Walmart’s goal is for its new Home Office to open in phases between 2020 and 2024.
