History

Arup has played an influential part in the evolution of the built environment for over seventy years. We add to that proud history every day.

Ove Arup was the greatest engineer of the 20th century. Unconventional and playful in his approach, his collaborative working style revolutionised building design during his lifetime and influenced how buildings are made today. ” Zofia Trafas White co-curator of the V&A exhibition “Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the philosophy of Total Design”

Right from the start, Arup was known for its close collaborations with leading architects like Renzo Piano, Richard Rogers and Norman Foster. In its first two decades, the firm expanded rapidly and earned a reputation for creative and economical solutions across the built environment – a reputation it still enjoys today.
