As a trust-owned firm with no individual shareholders or external investors, Arup sets its own direction – independently. This allows us to choose work that aligns with our values, working with clients on ambitious projects that will set new standards.
As a professional members’ organisation, our staff share in our annual profit. We continue to attract the best talent, who produce high quality work for our clients, in turn creating new opportunities. This forms the basis of the ‘unity and enthusiasm’ ethos that our founder Sir Ove Arup recognised as critical to the essence of Arup.
