Located between Asia, Europe and Africa, Dubai is a thriving business hub serving the wider Middle East region and attracting international investors.

Arup has been working in the Middle East since the early 1970s. We work with major multinational clients, alongside some of the world's most influential architects to deliver creative and high value technical solutions.

The Dubai office has worked on an array of world class projects, including Aldar HQ in Abu Dhabi, a landmark building which is perfectly circular in elevation. It also continues to provide Operational Readiness and Airport Transition (ORAT) services for Emirates Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport, which once the current expansion plan is completed, will have the capacity to serve 90 million passengers per year by 2018.
