St Francis Shangri-la Place – The tallest residential high-rise building in the Philippines uses Arup’s patented damped-outrigger system to withstand earthquakes.

With more than 20 years’ experience in the Philippines, Arup has established itself as an industry leader in seismic engineering in the country. St Francis Shangri-La is the world’s first building to adopt a damped-outrigger system – Arup’s patented viscous damping system. Our track record includes industrial facilities, tall buildings and infrastructure such as Rodriguez Water Treatment Plant. Our local staff benefit from Arup’s worldwide network and draw upon global resources and expertise to solve problems requiring any specialist skills.
