Arup’s business in Nottingham has been making a positive contribution to the city and the East Midlands for over 30 years. Our team of more than 90 engineers, planners and digital experts provide multidisciplinary services ranging from structural and mechanical engineering to town planning and specialist technology operations. We work on projects across the built environment to help solve complex real-world challenges including developments to major UK highways and the design of iconic sporting venues such as Derby Arena. Our people contribute to many local and national projects, helping shape the successful delivery of important infrastructure projects.

In many cases, our clients turn to us for new, low-carbon approaches to transform and reuse existing buildings. Our work in this field includes the engineering design for the complete refurbishment and expansion of the George Green Library at the University of Nottingham. Continuing our collaboration with world class universities, we recently designed Cripps health centre, the largest single site health centre in the UK.
