Arup opens two offices in Brazil

Consultant Arup announced today that it was targeting Olympic and World Cup work with the opening of two permanent offices in Rio de Janerio and Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The firm has previously worked in Brazil, but only through project offices set up to deliver specific schemes, according to Arup country director for Brazil Ricardo Pittella.

Brazil is hosting the football World Cup in 2014, and then the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

“The opening of the new permanent offices in Rio and São Paulo plants a clear marker that we are here to stay and that we believe there is a strong future for Arup in this country,” added Pittella.

As well as building on its existing client base, the firm is also hoping to win work on major Brazilian infrastructure and energy projects.
