The Arup Sheffield office, which first opened in 1957, has moved from New Oxford House in Barker’s Pool to 3 St Paul’s Place.

The relocation comes as a result of the firm’s growth and success in recent years, with the workforce now exceeding 130 people.

Arup has successfully secured the top 9th and 8th floors of the building, with the addition of a private roof terrace, with stunning views over the city. Arup appointed national fit out and refurbishment specialist Overbury to deliver a new workspace.

Jim Bell, director of the Sheffield office, said: “Our expanding business in Sheffield requires high-quality spaces for our staff and to welcome our clients from across the region, providing increased opportunity to collaborate with our clients in the delivery of their projects. We are delighted to be moving to the new development and look forward to welcoming our clients and colleagues to the new facilities.”

The new office promotes a move to more collaborative working with an agile desk policy and high-tech meeting rooms to facilitate international working. The scheme is on target to achieve a SKA Gold rating, which is an environmental assessment method for non-domestic fit-outs.
