Arup is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services.
Founded in 1946 with an enduring set of values, our unique trust ownership fosters a distinctive culture and an intellectual independence that encourages collaborative working.

The firm, which is wholly owned in trust for the benefit of its employees, enjoys total financial independence and has a global annual turnover in excess of £950 million. All profits, after provision for prudent reserves, are distributed to the staff. A substantial proportion of the firm's income is devoted to improving its technical standards through the continuing professional development of its members and by developing new techniques of engineering design and management.
