Arup’s mission is in our motto: “We Shape a Better World”. A global firm of designers, engineers, planners, technical specialists and researchers, we work across every aspect of today’s built environment to find innovative and tangible solutions that change people’s lives for the better. Globally, we have over 15,000 employees and operate out of 40 countries, across 92 offices. Arup was founded in 1946 as an employee-owned firm by Sir Ove Arup, a celebrated engineer and philosopher whose philosophy of ‘Total Design’ as a form of social usefulness is still the cornerstone of our practice today. Ove Arup was ahead of his time, discussing the importance of sustainable attitudes and innovative thinking as early as the 1950s – a legacy of which we as a firm remain proud.
