Arup has been active in Los Angeles for more than 30 years, providing engineering, consulting, and planning services on a wide array of projects across several sectors, with a strong focus on how our work contributes to more sustainable, just, and inclusive communities in Southern California and around the world.

Arup’s contributions to the greater Los Angeles area cover a broad range of building uses and design specialties. Recent community-focused projects include the renovation of the Long Beach Civic Center, where we helped the city engage private sector resources to deliver a modern, high-performing public facility, and the Long Beach International Gateway Bridge, for which we contributed bridge, civil, and structural engineering services and seismic design. In addition, our engineers, designers, and planners are helping Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and its airlines respond to growth and change in the aviation industry through a range of projects. A long-time leader in the arts and entertainment industry, our Los Angeles team helped modernize the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and provided mechanical and electrical engineering design and AV and lighting design consulting for the Broad Contemporary Art Museum. As a leader in sustainability and sustainable development, Arup provided consulting services for the LA Green New Deal, which outlines the City’s goal of achieving zero carbon emissions by 2050, and served as the lead designer on Bradley Plaza Green Alley, a project which transformed an underutilized alley in Pacoima, California into a resilient community space. 

Outside of Los Angeles, Arup contributed to the recently-opened Başakşehir Pine and Sakura City Hospital, the largest base-isolated building in the world, offering structural engineering and seismic design services. 

In 2019, the office relocated to 900 Wilshire Boulevard in Downtown Los Angeles. The new office is a state-of-the-art work environment that promotes creativity, wellness, integrated design, and inclusivity of staff with a specific focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. The new space also features Arup’s first SoundLab/ExperienceLab, a calibrated, fully immersive audio and visual environment where Arup can provide simulations of an existing or unbuilt space to allow for the client to make informed design decisions.
