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 eight 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.

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.
