8 ChifleyOur first collaboration with Richard Rogers architects in Australia – one of Sydney’s greenest buildings.

Arup came to Australia in 1963 to undertake the structural design of the Sydney Opera House and we now work from seven offices across four key areas of influence: cities, connectivity, health, resources. Our desire to shape a better world ensures our clients receive smart design ideas with a social purpose, which will have a positive influence for current and future generations. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history of our region, and Arup's Indigenous Employment Strategy articulates our actions to broaden employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians into, and within, the firm.

Centered around the Brisbane River, Brisbane city is the cosmopolitan, subtropical heart of south east Queensland and one of Australia's fastest growing capital cities.

Arup has enjoyed a strong presence in Brisbane since 1978. The firm's work is best characterised by its involvement in iconic projects that make a mark on the local landscape – including a number of stunning bridges and structures such as the multi-award winning Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Gallery of Modern Art, Kurilpa pedestrian bridge and the Go Between Bridge.

Arup's contribution to strategic water infrastructure planning (in Gladstone and North Queensland) and work on major infrastructure planning at Brisbane Airport and on the Airport Link, Northern Busway and Airport Roundabout project – Australia's largest ever road infrastructure project – is helping to secure the state's future.

With close links to all levels of government and major contractors, Arup involvement in the city's future development will continue to be significant as the city strives for modern, sustainable infrastructure solutions.
