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 always had a special relationship with Sydney. It was Ove Arup's work realising the design of Sydney Opera House in the 1960s that brought the firm to international prominence. The firm continues to partner its custodians in the care and upgrade of this extraordinary building today.

Arup play a significant role in shaping Sydney, from Central to Eveleigh to the upgrade of the Pacific Highway connecting with Brisbane, light rail lines in Sydney and Parramatta, Sydney Metro, and the smart buildings that now grace the Sydney skyline.

Our work on the structurally complex Dr Chau Chak Wing Building has been matched in ambition by 8 Chifley and 200 George Street, amongst Sydney’s greenest buildings.

Against the backdrop of global climate change, Arup is a partner and strategic adviser to the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, of which Sydney forms a part. We consult on the sustainable management of water, energy and how to apply digital strategy to improve economic performance, resource efficiency, climate change mitigation, operational efficiency, as well as delivering a great place to live and work.
