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 established its Western Australia presence in Perth in 1969. For more than 50 years we have played a significant role in engineering and planning the State’s buildings, precincts and infrastructure which now make up the vital transport and services networks.

In the 1970s Arup became renowned as the leading local structural engineering firm and the portfolio of projects grew quickly – Allendale Square, Murdoch University, 256 Adelaide Terrace, Burswood Casino, Bankwest Tower, SGIO offices, the Bell Tower and Raffles apartments.

Our civil engineering services for North Whitfords were followed by the East Perth Redevelopment; the first highways project was Kwinana Freeway from Safety Bay to Mandurah; the northern line rail projects Stirling, Whitfords, Greenwood, followed by the sinking of the Subiaco rail line and station. Arup also worked in the oil and gas sector with the Wandoo offshore platform construction in Bunbury.

We continue contributing to city shaping projects through engineering, planning and advisory services such as Elizabeth Quay Pedestrian Bridge, the expansion of Perth Airport’s international and domestic terminals and supporting road infrastructure with commendations for our operational readiness work for  Domestic Terminals 1 and 2.

Other significant projects include the multi-award winning Optus Stadium and Scarborough Foreshore Redevelopment, the Victoria Park Drive modifications, the Morley-Ellenbrook Line and other METRONET projects, the Great Northern Highway upgrade, Mitchell Freeway widening  and Kwinana Freeway Smart Freeways projects. 

Our engineering design also helps deliver solutions for major energy sectors, including the Gorgon LNG and Ichthys LNG project.
