Te Kōkiringa Taumata/ NZPI welcome ARUP as Gold Sponsor for NZPI Conference 2023.

ARUP are one the world’s largest multidisciplinary consultancies, with a collective of 16,000 designers, advisors and experts working across 140 countries. As a company they’re dedicated to sustainable development and have a vast portfolio that is “focused on producing safe, inclusive and resilient communities, infrastructure and cities”. Founded by Sir Ove Arup in 1940’s London, they’ve been operating for over 75 years and have been part of the business community in New Zealand since 2018.

Their global projects include hospitals and universities in North America, landmark buildings in Demark and China, the worlds longest sea crossing in Hong Kong, and work on the transformation to cleaner energy in Scotland. Here in Aotearoa they’ve been involved in work on the North Harbour Stadium and Te Papa Museum. They’ve also been making a contribution to future proofing Tamaki Makaurau through their work on city access plans and their partnership in delivering Auckland’s Central Interceptor project, arguably one of the most significant infrastructure projects in the country.

Their relationship with NZPI has grown over the past year where they’ve sponsored a series of webinars and helped with some of the speakers and presenters. The team at the Auckland office are closely connected with Malcolm Smith, Arup’s Australasian Cities Leader and the founding director of Arup London’s Integrated City Planning (ICP) unit. Malcolm brings together design, economics and political strategy in complex master planning projects. We’re fortunate to have Malcolm as a keynote speaker at #NZPIC23. Register now to see Malcolm’s 15-minute vision to futureproof our cities.

ARUP have come on board as our Gold Sponsor for NZPI Conference, happening in Ōtautahi / Christchurch on 19 – 21 April 2023. They’re growing their team of planners, engineers and consultants, and their sponsorship of conference brings into focus their goal to use their global experience and develop innovative, technical and sustainable projects here in Aotearoa.
