Chifley SquareChifley Square

8 Chifley is one of Sydney’s greenest buildings and marked our first collaboration with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and Lippmann Partnership in Australia.

Arup came to Australia in 1963 to undertake the structural design of the Sydney Opera House. We now employ over 2,000 staff working from ten offices across the country and have developed a diverse practice through delivering a wide range of projects for public and private sector clients. 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 acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where our offices are located and where our projects take place. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and emerging, and to all Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders. We recognise and celebrate their cultures, traditions and protocols.

Arup has a long association with Australia’s capital city. We opened our first Canberra office in 1968.

Canberra is synonymous with the Australian Government and our insights have been influential across a range of diverse areas including economics and planning, and resilience, security and risk.

We have a close relationship with the ACT Government too and have been involved in many city-shaping projects. These include the design of the first stage of Canberra’s Light Rail network, as well as the masterplanning of subsequent stages. We are also a driving force behind the City to the Lake development linking Civic with Lake Burley Griffin.

Raising the bar for sustainable high quality commercial and residential projects, our work on NewActon Nishi features Australia's largest timber façade, and building integrated photovoltaic panel array.
