Arup is an independent firm of specialists committed to delivering industry-wide sustainability initiatives and place shaping consultancy services to the public sector.

Through the SCAPE SCOTLAND Consultancy | Place Shaping framework, Arup is dedicated to delivering value and opportunity for the public sector and communities across Scotland.

We provide a full consultancy service in relation to the strategic management and place shaping of the Scottish public estate, offering technical excellence, efficient organisation and a personalised service. Our team comprises of experts in the fields of structural and civil engineering, multidisciplinary building engineering (structural, mechanical, electrical and public health), geotechnics, water engineering, transportation and environmental studies. These principle areas are supported by a wide range of inhouse risk and resilience, asset management, climate action strategies and digital transformation specialists.

So, whether you're looking for advice on funding, project prioritisation and resourcing, or help to achieve carbon zero targets, you have instant access to our teams who will be on hand to support you, offering training, framework advice and support.

Working collaboratively with our clients from day one, we're able to accelerate projects and deliver efficient, innovative and sustainable solutions. By offering a unique range of framework services, we have an unrivalled record of providing added value and social value back into our local communities.

Together, we are committed to shaping a more sustainable, better world. Let us make sure that your strategic vision for your estate becomes a reality.

The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on communities this year, but it has also highlighted that the connection between people and place matters more than ever. Maximising our community assets and reinventing our public spaces through creative placemaking will play a key role towards both Covid and climate recovery. This is why we are looking forward to working with the local authorities through the SCAPE SCOTLAND Consultancy | Place Shaping framework to help them successfully deliver projects that will bring real benefit to their communities.”
