Astra Tower – At 270m, it is one of Indonesia's tallest buildings

Arup has been shaping Indonesia since the 1970s. Our experience in tackling the urbanisation challenges faced by the country has made us the engineers, designers, planners and strategic advisors of choice for many local and international clients.

Drawing upon extensive expertise from our local team and global network, we create liveable cities, connect communities through resilient infrastructure and design high performing and seismic resilient buildings. 

We are proud of our portfolio of work which includes some of the country’s early landmarks: Jakarta’s Peak Twin Towers and Menara Jamsostek, Sumatra’s Siak River Bridge and the Shangri-la Hotel in Surabaya. 

Today we continue to shape the country’s buildings and infrastructure through projects such as the Greater Jakarta Commuter Rail Revitalisation, Jakarta-Bandung High Speed Rail Transit Oriented Development at Karawang and Tegalluar, Probolinggo LNG terminal in East Java, Bandar Lampung Water Supply Scheme in Sumatra, and Menara Astra in the heart of Jakarta CBD.

Arup has also been involved in Climate Change and Resilience work in Indonesia, reviewing Semarang as part of the 100 Resilient Cities programme, and in housing reconstruction programmes post-tsunami Aceh.

Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital, is one of the most densely populated and fastest growing cities in the world. Since the 1970s Arup’s experience across a range of markets has helped to reduce the impacts of mass urbanisation and create new infrastructure to cater for the rapidly growing population -  from transport, water, energy, residential, aviation, schools, hospitals to commercial property.

Our growing Jakarta office and Arup’s global network has collaborated on some of the city’s leading projects, setting new standards for infrastructure and buildings in the region. We work across disciplines, from achieving Indonesia’s first LEED building on Pacific Century Place Tower, delivering a structurally resilient design for Menara Astra, one of Jakarta’s tallest buildings in the CBD, to providing technical advice on the Jakarta International Velodrome. We are also working with rail owners and operators to identify operational improvements and investment opportunities for the rail network in Greater Jakarta, and designing a more connected and walkable community with MRT Jakarta’s pedestrian masterplan. 

Jakarta was also one of the original C40 cities that we collaborated with on climate change research and development.
