As a recognised leader in ground engineering, Arup is often asked to push the essential skill and science of designing and building in the ground. Wherever difficult ground conditions, sensitive environments or ambitious projects present geotechnical challenges, our broad range of ground engineering expertise underpins Arup’s work on all projects that interact with the ground. Our team is global, offering ground engineering and expertise in geotechnical design, geology and rock mechanics, hydrogeology, seismic design, contaminated land and many other specialised services.

We design sustainable solutions to meet the needs of our future low carbon society, such as geothermal energy or carbon capture and underground storage or preserving soil health and valuable habitats such as peatlands. We also address present day demands to provide reliable new infrastructure and manage existing ageing assets or provide deep basements in congested cities, and maximise the reuse of excavated material from construction sites.
