About Arup Hong Kong:
Since Arup opened its office in Hong Kong in 1976, it has undertaken a huge range of projects throughout the territory that have contributed both to the skyline itself and to a host of transportation and public projects. From Two International Finance Centre to the International Commerce Centre, Arup’s tall building expertise is continually helping the city to grow beyond the sky’s limit. Arup’s influence can be felt throughout the city’s world-class infrastructure, from the 1.6 km long, cable-stayed Stonecutters Bridge to the sustainable Midfield Concourse development at Hong Kong International Airport, from designing a large share of its sophisticated railway networks to planning the next-generation towns such as Kowloon East Smart District.
Arup’s multidisciplinary expertise is helping the city renew its urban spaces and strengthen its identity and competitiveness in the global arena. These include the West Kowloon Cultural District and Kai Tak area redevelopment. The firm is also involved in some of the largest cross-border projects that are helping to forge closer economic ties between Hong Kong, Macau and the mainland, including the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Corridor.
