Sydney Opera House - Arup Sydney Opera House designers

Arup has always pioneered the use of the most advanced technologies.

Arup has always pioneered the use of the most advanced technologies.

We were the first to use large scale computing during construction of the Sydney Opera House. We developed the first Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. And today, we’re leading the first ever trials of self-driving cars.

When our founder Ove Arup pioneered Total Design, his vision was to bring together different disciplines to ensure the best possible integrated solution.

In today’s digital world, Total Design is still at the heart of everything we do. But the physical is now only one part of the story.

At every stage of a project, we factor in the dynamic interaction of three elements

Physical, Human, Digital

That’s because Digital technology affects the Physical assets that we build, and the different ways that Human s interact with them.

The passenger, the station and the train are all connected.

That means travellers know exactly when the train will arrive and can plan their journey with greater certainty. Those controlling the system are able to better manage the flow of trains because of real-time information. Retailers can maximise revenues because of their detailed knowledge of likely peak times. And the designers at Arup used advanced digital tools to ensure the client could consider every possibility before arriving at the right design.

Because we consider the physical, human and digital at the same time, everyone is able to make better decisions.

Arup Cities of the future

Your whole strategy now depends on incorporating the digital world into your planning. Whether it’s a major property development or a complex transport system, you need a clear view of the technologies that will affect your users’ behaviour.

When you’re making big investment choices, having a partner who understands not only the physical environment but also considers future human and digital needs, you’re more likely to make the right decisions.

Digital Technology to make better decisions

Arup brings together the creative minds of leading experts in your industry with technology that enables us to imagine every possibility.

When you’re planning a project, we use data and digital design tools to model every aspect so we know what to build and how to build it. Because we’re able to digitally construct the future, together we can make much better decisions about every single process, both during the build and once the operations go live.

Arup Digital drives better decisions

Whatever your project, you need to engage and educate others whose decisions will impact your success.

Whether it’s external investors, future tenants, public authorities or members of the public, Arup uses digital technology to bring to life the future so they can see and hear it for themselves. This enables them to fully understand your vision.

The way we design and engineer is rapidly changing as new digital capabilities become available.

We use the latest software to enable teams in different countries with different skills to collaborate in real-time on a single project.

That also means we can imagine and test an infinite number of possibilities, and realise projects faster, cheaper and with greater accuracy.

And because we’re increasingly able to digitise the processes involved, we can focus more of our time on better engineering.

Arup digital drives better engineering

Digital design tools are improving at rapid speed – and we’re at the forefront of this innovation. Technologies like BIM (Building Information Modelling) enable us to deliver projects more accurately, with less waste and at greater pace. This is because everything can be designed and tested digitally before being constructed physically.

Digital leaders for better engineering

We’re leading the way towards one integrated digital system. This gives everyone involved a single view of the project, which means fewer inconsistencies and greater certainty. And when the project goes live, our clients can receive a fully functioning model that brings all the important information together.

Better engineering - Arup digital leaders

Within our digital teams and alongside leading software partners, we’re developing bespoke applications that will allow us to digitise many of our processes. Take piling assessment, for example. Because of software we’ve developed, our structural engineers can now perform tasks in minutes that used to take hours.

In a world of the Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence, being able to make real time decisions makes all the difference. The data that’s fed back to you can be used to improve the performance of specific operational processes.

It can also help you make better strategic decisions about your asset. And that means you’re assured of a better performance from your investments now and into the future.

Technology drives better outcomes

Once a project goes live, it’s fed by data gathered through the Internet of Things. We combine data analytics and artificial intelligence to pull together complex information to help everyone involved make decisions. And longer-term planning is informed by smart trend analysis.

Bridge - Arup Technology drives better decisions

We know when a structure needs maintenance before problems occur – because it tells us. We can enable transport systems to keep more people moving – because there is much better real time information. The data that can be captured not only alerts you to what is and isn’t working – it also helps you decide what happens next.

Train stations of the future - Arup

All of the insights that we collect feed into our future projects. That means there’s a process of continual learning and improvement – enabling us to help you make better decisions, benefit from better engineering and experience better outcomes.
