Arup was originally established in 1946 by Sir Ove Arup as Ove N. Arup Consulting Engineers. Through its involvement in various high-profile projects, such as the Sydney Opera House, Arup became well known for undertaking complex and challenging projects involving the built environment. In 1970, Arup stepped down from actively leading the company, setting out the principles which have continued to guide Arup's activities since in his 'Key Speech'.
The ownership of Arup is structured as a trust. The beneficiaries of the trust are Arup's employees, both past and present, who receive a share of the firm's operating profit each year.
