Arup was founded in London by Ove Arup in 1946 with an initial focus on structural engineering. Now with 14 offices across Great Britain it has since grown into a truly multidisciplinary organisation. Arup has worked across Wales since 1970 and is now the most substantial and diverse consultant in the Principality. Notable projects in the built environment include the design of the Wales Debating Chamber and substantial contributions to the Millennium Centre and Stadium. In the fields of health and education the exemplary projects of Swansea University and the Design 4 Life program. Arup brings together broad-minded individuals from a wide range of disciplines and encourages them to look beyond the constraints of their own specialisms. This unconventional approach to design springs in part from Arup’s ownership structure. We are one of very few truly independent major design consultants with the firm owned in trust on behalf of its staff. The result is an independence of spirit that is reflected in the firm’s work, and in its dedicated pursuit of technical excellence.
