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 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.
