Insights on the built environment

In a year like no other — with in-person events shelved and unprecedented topics becoming top-of mind, Arup experts in the Americas and beyond took up our current challenges as an opportunity to spark connectivity, community, and thought-provoking discussion with our peers and collaborators. 

Throughout the year, leaders from across the industry have generously added their voices to a dialogue about our current stressors, necessary design interventions, and the road ahead for the built environment. 

We look forward to many more events in the coming year, from discussions on digital transformation, alternative project delivery and investments to conversations about how we can design in concert with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
