The USGBC Massachusetts Chapter is proud to announce that Arup has become a Silver sponsor for our organization. Arup has been in Boston for almost 20 years, they bring both local knowledge and a global perspective on projects in Massachusetts and worldwide. They have 80 employees locally. Globally, they are a firm of 13,000 people in 92 offices across 40 countries, providing design and consulting for the built environment.
Arup is an independent organization owned in trust for the benefit of its employees, which means that the firm is able to independently determine its own priorities and direction as a business. One of these priorities is to shape a better world and includes a commitment to sustainability and resilience.
Current and recent projects in the Boston area include Northeastern University Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Complex, MBTA Green Line Extension, Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building at Dudley Square, MIT Site 4 Graduate Student Tower, Boston Properties Back Bay Station mixed use development and Partners Healthcare Resiliency Masterplan.
Arup recently moved to a new space at 60 State Street, where they are targeting both LEEDv4 ID+C Platinum and WELL Silver certifications. The design minimizes ecological impact, plans for operational excellence, and fosters an environment where employees thrive. The office also serves as a living laboratory to test its own wellbeing assessment to help quantify the impact of health and wellbeing strategies in the built environment.
Thank you for becoming a partner, Arup! Shoutout to new Chapter Board chair Rebecca Hatchadorian, sustainability consultant at Arup.
