LOS ANGELES, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Arup, a multidisciplinary engineering and consulting firm with a reputation for delivering innovative and sustainable designs, announced today that it has expanded its Los Angeles (LA) footprint into downtown in order to better accommodate and serve the growing needs of its clients. The establishment of a second LA office in downtown will strengthen Arup's relationships with the agencies, institutions and clients that continue to shape the improvement and development of southern California's infrastructure and built environment.
Designed in collaboration with Zago Architecture, the 2,500 SF office space at 811 Wilshire Boulevard provides staff with flexible work stations and large open spaces for client meetings and workshops.
"Our Los Angeles client base has seen a steady and sustainable growth in recent years," said Jon Phillips, managing principal of Arup's Los Angeles practice. "The acquisition of additional office space will allow us to more effectively and efficiently serve our downtown LA clients. The space will also enhance a collaborative team environment, and improve workflow and staff productivity."
Arup opened its first LA office in 1986 and has contributed significantly to the built environment in the greater Los Angeles area. The firm has delivered hundreds of projects in Southern California over the last 25 years, including the renovation of historic Dodger Stadium, the Caltrans District 7 Headquarters, the LACMA Transformation Project, the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the new U.S. Federal Courthouse in San Diego, and dozens of projects for the region's colleges and universities.
Current projects in the greater Los Angeles area include the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor Project, an 8.5-mile light-rail line; the Samuel Oschin Air and Space Center at the California Science Center, which will permanently house the Space Shuttle Endeavour; The Village at USC, a new mixed-use development consisting of a student housing village with community-focused retail, parking and academic areas located on a 14-acre site directly north of the main USC campus; and the replacement of the existing 1960's Gerald Desmond Bridge in Long Beach, with a 2,000ft-long, 6-lane, signature cable-stayed bridge with a 1,000ft main span.
Arup will celebrate the opening of its new downtown space with several client-focused events throughout the early part of 2014.
