At Arup, we design and deliver ground-breaking icons through our work in infrastructure, building design and specialist technical services. Independent in ownership and spirit, we're a global firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical experts who use our skills to make a positive difference in the world.
Designing the building envelope is designing the single most striking part of the building. The façade fuses architecture with structural challenge, energy conservation, occupant comfort; and the creation of exciting and valuable space within the building.
Arup has the largest and strongest façade engineering team globally. Our approach is based on excellence and ingenuity. We work on the most exciting projects around the world.
Our service integrates technical design, structural engineering, thermal analysis, advanced modelling techniques and new materials.
