Living Bridge, University of Limerick – Spanning 350 metres, the Living Bridge is the longest pedestrian bridge in Ireland.

Arup is one of the largest engineering consulting firms in Ireland, with over 550 qualified and accredited engineers and staff in our four offices. We have built a reputation for unrivalled local expertise and knowledge.

We have been delivering landmark projects since our foundation in 1946, when Ove Arup teamed up with a local architect, Michael Scott of Scott Tallon Walker. The design of Busáras, the Irish national bus company headquarters, was Arup's first project in Ireland. This represents outstanding importance in the history of Irish architecture.

Arup first opened an office in Galway in 2008, through the acquisition of local firm Hugh Griffin Associates. Some of our landmark projects in Galway include the Mayo-Galway pipeline, the award winning Engineering Building at NUIG and more recently the Galway bike scheme. Our current work includes the N6 Galway City Transport project.

Enabling our growing team to offer key services to new and existing clients in the west of Ireland, we have recently expanded our team and moved to a larger office in Ballybrit (in January 2015). This is testament to the momentum we are seeing as we continue to invest in our business and talent across the region and underlines Arup's commitment to the region.
