Office locations



Arup has been working in the Philippines since 1986; and in 1990, we established a permanent office in Manila. The local office coordinates with clients in the Philippines, delivering projects using our strong local team. The local office is supported by our global network to provide total design services in response to the increasing demand for high quality, international standard projects for the country’s growing economy.

We have delivered some of the most prominent buildings in the city including the Philippine Museum of Natural History – a celebrated project of national importance,  Grand Hyatt Metrocenter, the tallest and biggest mixed-use development in the Philippines and St Francis Shangri-la Place, the world’s first building to adopt a damped-outrigger system – Arup’s patented viscous damping system. 

Our track record also includes industrial facilities and infrastructure projects such as the Malampaya gas to energy project, East La Mesa Water Treatment Plant , Bugo Cannery Waste to Energy Plant, and the Glorietta Redevelopment district cooling system.

Apart from serving the local market, the Manila office is also active throughout Asia through designing works in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Japan and Korea.
