We help you use technology to realise new opportunities, improve efficiency and manage risk effectively.

At Arup, we combine innovative digital solutions with our domain expertise across the built environment. We understand our clients and help them exceed their goals. Our integrated market-led services also enable us to manage large-scale projects.


A move to a digital economy has had a profound impact on all involved in the built environment. Digitisation has provided opportunities to improve management decisions, enhance processes, develop new products and services and challenge traditional business models. Digital strategies need to be carefully considered to ensure technology is used for the profound impact it can ignite, rather than using technology for technology's sake.

This video highlights Arup’s digital offer and describes the transformative impact that digital technology is having upon our business and projects.

Technology also be used by business and government to predict and plan for future scenarios and to implement step changes in performance to save costs and generate revenue.

We work with stakeholders across your organisation to establish the business case and define a digital strategy that will achieve your critical business objectives. We can define and support your policy and governance structures, advise on procurement and help to make your business more resilient.

The right strategy maximises your return on investment, enabling effective masterplanning and ‘future-proofing’ your plans.

Find out about our work with UK National Air Traffic Services, and see how our business and technology solutions delivered considerable business efficiencies.


Our experience in systems architecture, design and assurance and ICT infrastructure design means we can design robust platforms for ongoing business improvement. Our global reach enables us to put together a team that will bring exactly the right skills to your project. We continually invest in refining our expertise, researching the latest technological advances to ‘future-proof’ systems and protect investments.

By embracing fast-evolving technology, we deliver innovation that streamlines systems. At Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 we introduced an award-winning shared mobile network infrastructure, something never before achieved on that scale. It cut costs for our client Heathrow Airport Ltd (formerly BAA) and for the mobile operators, and made installation and maintenance much more efficient.


We can help you to leverage the power of data to provide insight and analytics services that solve the key issues you’re facing. Tailored data analytics, visualisation and reporting solutions help you understand important trends and predict outcomes, inform your decision-making and improve your business performance.

Our ability to generate insight from data and is demonstrated by our ability to create an interactive platform for the Bureau of Transport Statistics Data Visualisation Project and our work in Mapping the New South Wales Budget in Australia.


Effective technology operations and project management bring systems, processes and people together, creating a smooth transition from implementation to operation, and beyond. Here, our ability to manage a diverse range of portfolios and projects is seen to best effect – steering process optimisation, resolving technical and workforce issues, monitoring interoperability and advising on change management.

We have managed successful openings of facilities such as Dubai Emirates Terminal 3, one of the world’s largest terminal buildings. At T3 we managed the delivery and integration of all the airport’s systems including flight information, operational and security systems and a common IT network.
