At the beginning Arup’s Zimbabwe team focused mainly on structural commissions, but by 1974 had expanded into multidisciplinary work, including mechanical and electrical services. More recently the team has begun to offer an Environmental and Urban and Rural Planning service.

For the two decades following the mid-1970s, Arup played a role in the majority of Harare’s high rise buildings. The mixed-use retail/commercial Eastgate building was a particular landmark, rightly recognized for its innovative use of passive cooling. And with the ZINARA Road Rehabilitation project, Arup has pioneered the delivery of the world’s first off-grid, solar-powered highway toll plaza.
