The international design firm Arup has launched a buildings engineering practice in Toronto. Arup’s previous engineering practice in Toronto was focused on transportation planning, but they now have 20 professionals in the core structural, mechanical and electrical engineering team. In total, the firm has a multidisciplinary staff in Canada of 100.

John Batchelor is heading the Toronto building practice. He has been leading Arup’s work on the Spadina Line extension and Queens Quay waterfront developments in Toronto.

Asked if they hired staff for the Toronto building engineering division locally, an Arup spokesperson replied: “Our team includes primarily locally recruited staff, augmented by a number of Arup engineers with strong experience in a wide variety of building types in various markets globally.  We always look first to the local market to hire the right staff  …”

Arup is already doing work in Quebec, Alberta and B.C. They say “We will eventually consider new offices where the opportunity presents itself or the need arises.”

The company  has 90 offices in 35 countries, with 10,000 professionals.
