You won't find run of the mill designs and blue prints around this office. "We don't go for the standard structural designs; we enjoy looking at something new, from a different angle, in a way people didn't think was possible", Hargrave shares. Recent projects include trends in green infrastructure, a project on the future of urban water and a number of global structures including Heathrow Terminal 5, Aldar Headquarters in Abu Dhabi, the Birds Nest stadium and Singapore Flyer.
With dedicated teams constantly focusing on R & D and discovering new and intelligent ways to create sustainable structures, Arup has long been at the forefront for new and innovative thinking. A focus on the environment, ability to think outside the box and bringing something new to each project, the team attracts like-minded individuals as a result. "We all have a vested interest in seeing the group perform well and being forerunners in the field of structural engineering and design", he concludes.
