At Arup, digital runs through everything we do. We’re engineers and data scientists, planners and designers, strategists and digital experts – committed to enhancing the built and the natural environments around us.
Our award-winning work combines analytics, automation, digital creativity, and emerging technologies, with the multidisciplinary engineering and domain knowledge breadth of Arup.
We embed digital processes and tools throughout the whole lifecycle of a project, from inception and design, to construction, management, maintenance and retrofit.
With net zero commitments reshaping practices across our industry, innovative digital tools are enabling us to produce a sustainable future for both the built and natural environments.
By bringing buildings and assets fully into the digital realm, we can produce a step change in the built and natural environment – net zero buildings, new user experiences, incredible operational insights and reduced costs.” Will Cavendish Global Digital Services Leader
Exploring a new paradigm for architecture and design
Beyond its core outputs and project level performance, computational design has the potential to bring back a much needed radicalism to design. It enables every engineer, designer, architect and client to bring a boldness to their decision making.
The brain of a sustainable building – its time to invest in digital twins
Navigating the climate change era is about being armed with the most relevant insights and powerful predictions. This is why digital twins equipped with advanced machine learning features, that can bring future performance outcomes to life, are only going to become more valuable.
Is artificial intelligence going to design your next building?
In recent years, AI and machine learning tools have leapt from interesting-in-theory to uncanny-in-practice. Tools like GPT-3 offer a preview of the scale of engineering and design questions we might answer in the future. So what does this mean for the architectural, engineering and construction industry?
The future is a digital, circular construction process
The principles of the circular economy, the shift from take/make/dispose to design for reuse, have been slow to become the norm in the built environment sector. How can developers and constructors find a way to overcome the lack of a standardised way to incorporate recycled material into their projects?
