Consulting Excellence Finalist 2019 Arup

Arup is a firm based on strong values and a clear ethos.

As trusted advisor, Arup is innovating with digital technology to deliver more insight as digital leader in the built environment. As the same time, sustainable development is key to all of Arup’s aspirations as a firm and this insight helps clients to understand the bigger systems and connections shaping their immediate need, opening up new possibilities and opportunities.

Significant change needs a solid foundation and the nine principles frame the ongoing demonstration of Arup’s commitment to consulting excellence. Building on the practices within the firm that reinforce this, Arup believes that it must look to the firm’s future and disrupt for good – using technology and insight to help clients innovate for a sustainable future and build resilient solutions that add value long-term.

Addressing climate change in a meaningful way and promoting sustainability in everything it does is fundamental to Arup. It is using the Sustainable Development Goals to help focus and shape a better world, moving away from the outputs it creates to the broader outcomes for people and the planet. It sees them as a progressive new path for innovation and new thinking.

In parallel, digital technology is helping Arup to deliver breakthrough solutions at the critical point where its clients’ assets and infrastructure initiatives connect with their business and people issues, and with the wider systems and society. This is enabling Arup to deliver better solutions for its clients and create a lasting and positive legacy for future generations.

I chose Arup because I felt their approach to their employees, projects and overall contribution is at the forefront of where all responsible employers should be. More than this, the work seemed exciting, challenging, interesting and varied, all things that I felt were in line with what I want my future career to encompass. At Arup there are so many open doors.
