Our first office opened in South Africa in 1954 by Jack Zunz and Michael Lewis. In the intervening years, we have continued to showcase our expertise in design, planning and execution in the built environment; whilst upholding our commitment to developing sustainable communities. Our African Cities research ties in with on-the-ground urbanisation projects, enabling us to offer total design solutions. These include transport and logistics planning; large infrastructure; property solutions; and energy efficiencies, including one of the largest photovoltaic power plants in the world, the SCDA3 75MW PV facility.

Durban

Durban

Durban is a sophisticated cosmopolitan city of over 3.5m people and a city known as the home of Africa's best managed and busiest port.

Arup’s award-winning Timeball Tower commemorates the tower of the early 1900s which played an important role in advising ships entering port.

The ‘Golden Mile’, developed as a welcoming tourist destination in the 1970s, provides ample tourist attractions and Arup, opening an office in 1958, contributed to many of the prestigious hotels along the beachfront and landmark office and university buildings in the city.

Today, Arup is once again active on the Golden Mile with involvement in some of the new beach nodes along the promenade.

In the past decade, Arup has contributed to the growth of prestigious holiday accommodation in the form of luxury apartment buildings such as The Pearls in Umhlanga, and many of the mixed-use developments now springing up around city and province.

Arup has provided consultancy services on a number of aspects of the 2010 Soccer World Cup; and in Durban has been appointed to lead the planning and implementation of the Transportation Operational Plan for the city.

Arup are the interchange design architects on the new commuter station, which forms part of an existing rail network and is one of the main feeder stations into the new Moses Mabhida Stadium which will be hosting many of the events.
