Consultants add extra floor to their Cardiff office

Arup is expanding its Welsh operation with a £750,000 extension to its Cardiff building.

The office is one of Arup’s largest in Europe with 280 employees, and the firm is adding a further 4,000 sq ft of office space to its existing 30,000 sq ft site.

The Cardiff Waterside office extension will be handled by developer Morley Fund Management.

Arup’s Welsh office has supplied engineering services for the Wales Millennium Centre, building services design for the Millennium Stadium and the refurbishment of the University Hospital of Wales.

John Lovell, senior partner of Arup’s Cardiff office, said: “Our building suits our requirements perfectly and we are very keen to stay, so we are delighted that Morley has agreed to build a further floor.”
