Arup is the creative force behind many of the world’s most innovative and sustainable projects.
Arup’s approach to sustainable drainage addresses issues relating to resilience, flood risk, water supply and wastewater treatment by placing a re-integrated water cycle at the heart of planning, design and delivery. We know through working closely with our clients and their partners, that by aligning with other socio-economic and environmental drivers, the actions taken to protect and enhance the water cycle can deliver multiple wider benefits.
Our approach delivers powerful opportunities supporting other development needs, such as provision of green infrastructure, reduction in energy use and carbon emissions, better places, healthier and more resilient communities and delivery of economic growth. Water, considered alongside other priorities, can be a powerful integrator that highlights interdependencies between individuals, settlements, their hinterlands and global systems, facilitating collaborative, holistic approaches to policy, planning and design.
