Seven landmark buildings in the Australasia Region which were created with Arup expertise, have won global Awards of Excellence.
The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat Awards recognise extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment and achieving sustainability at the highest and broadest level. They represent the best qualities and innovations, especially those that have the greatest impact on the people who use them each day.
Arup was deeply involved in creating two buildings which received recognition in the 10 Year Award category – Marina Bay Sands, now an internationally-recognised symbol of Singapore, and the distinctive 1 Bligh Street in Sydney.
For Marina Bay Sands, Arup was responsible for multidisciplinary engineering including advanced works, infrastructure, structural, civil, fire and geotechnical engineering, building physics, maritime engineering, traffic, lighting design, façade and acoustic consulting and risk management.
