Toronto is the business and cultural heart of Canada and one of the world’s leading financial centres. Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, it is the fifth largest city in North America and a prominent centre for media, communications and entertainment.
With roots in aviation planning, Arup in Toronto now delivers a wide array of services largely focused on both the transportation and buildings sectors. Projects include the new terminal at the heart of the C$4.4bn redevelopment of Toronto Pearson International Airport. Arup also devised and applied innovative 3D modelling tools to predict commuter behaviour for a redeveloped Union Station downtown and led the design of two new subway stations as part of the expansion of the existing network.
Arup in Toronto also provided building engineering for the expansion of the Royal Ontario Museum and supported work on ambitious waterfront redevelopment plans that include the new central waterfront promenade for a sustainable waterfront community at the mouth of the Don River.
Arup was the first firm to embrace digital engineering in 1957 during the design of the Sydney Opera House by building the ‘Pegasus’ computer to realize such a complex project. Today we continue to innovate for cost-effective, sustainable and environmentally-friendly solutions for our clients. Pegasus Lab in Arup’s Toronto office is one of the first spaces in Canada dedicated to exploring digitally-integrated built environment engineering and consulting. It showcases the best in Arup's digital products and services, enabling the prototyping of digital engineering workflows and real-world tests of operational processes to help our clients visualize and understand outcomes.
Pegasus Lab offers:
Immersive Virtual Reality with gesture recognition to refine advanced 3D design models
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning video analytics to predict contextualized crowd movement
Augmented Reality stakeholder engagement and design review techniques for comprehensive assessments
- Data-driven engineering dashboards to streamline project management
At Arup we strive for the best solutions for our clients. The ability to demonstrate options clearly and fast is central to our design process. Maker's Lab in Arup’s Toronto office facilitates exploration of ideas through modelling, production, assembly and prototyping, enabling designers to better communicate design solutions to clients and stakeholders. Maker’s Lab is an open collaboration space equipped with a laser cutter and 3D printers, as well as manual tools and common materials such as wood, composites, plastics, light metals and card-stock. We embrace circular economy principals and encourage using discarded materials for sketch models and early concepts or prototypes.

In particular, Arup Canada will do so by seeing that its operations in Ontario are compliant, as far as reasonably practicable, with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 (AODA Act 2005).
