Arup was first established in Malaysia in 1964 under the name of Ove Arup dan Rakan-Rakan, when Arup in London won a competition to redevelop the General Hospital in Kuala Lumpur. In 1983, the company was incorporated into a private limited company and renamed Arup Jururunding Sdn Bhd. In the following decades, Arup Malaysia has grown in size and broadened its disciplines playing noteworthy roles in the evolving urban landscapes of Kuala Lumpur, Penang and other states. With a team of over 300 staff, we are at the forefront of industry delivering high quality services and solutions for our clients.



Office locations



The Penang office was established in the 1970s after Arup was commissioned as the civil and structural engineer for the Penang Urban Centre, known as Komtar. The 65-storey Komtar Tower remains the tallest building in Penang and our involvement in its recent revitalization works has won us the 2017 Malaysian Construction Industry Excellence Award (MCIEA) for the Best Project Award (Medium building category).

We are instrumental in delivering major developments in the northern region with projects ranging from residential to commercial and industrial plants. One of our more recent notable achievements was the design and construction of double basements under the 88-year-old St Joseph’s Novitiate heritage building while preserving its integrity. It won us the prestigious Association of Consulting Engineers, Malaysia (ACEM) Gold Award of Special Merit 2013, making us the first consultancy in the north to win the award. Through our involvement in the SPICE Convention Centre, we were also structural engineers for Malaysia’s largest subterranean pillarless ballroom and the largest rooftop recreational park with a sight-to-behold porte cochere.
