Arup is a global firm of designers, engineers, planners and business consultants. Outstanding solutions, innovation and value characterise their work. Arup has a vast pool of technical expertise across the world, enabling them to achieve the best possible results for their clients. In the construction industry, and for their clients in the built environment, almost every project is a prototype and R&D is frequently required at every stage, from feasibility through detail design and manufacture to construction, and throughout the whole life and use of the facility.

This takes many forms and responds not only to the challenges of individual projects, but also to the needs of designers and planners to explore new techniques and develop new tools, to be continually at the cutting edge of their particular discipline.

Ove Arup (1895-1988), recognised the need to engage the very best people, with the sharpest minds, to help deliver the best projects around the world. A key part of his strategy was the creation of Arup Research + Development (AR+D) in 1964. R&D remains at the core of the firm, extending established skills, incubating new skills and businesses, and fostering foresight and innovation. This committment has been fundamental to the firm's success in the past, as well as its ability to meet new chalenges, stretch capabilities, and develop new opportunities in the future.
