Arup Sheffield

Arup’s history in Sheffield began back in 1957, becoming their first office outside of London. Fast-forward almost 60 years and their presence within the city and surrounding regions is as prominent as ever, resulting in increased growth.
With growth comes more staff, which inevitably means more required workspace, resulting in Arup’s need to re-think their office layout.
As you’d expect from the company behind the structural design of the Sydney Opera House, Arup have always been a company looking to innovate. With this in mind, their chosen fit-out company, Overbury, consciously designed a scheme with a view to making the environment more agile and flexible.
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.”

So, being innovators ourselves when it comes to acoustics, Creatif were approached to address the issue of high reverberation within this newly developed open-plan, collaborative workspace.

Our suspended sound absorbent ceiling baffles - from our ReSound range - turned acoustic chaos into calm, allowing Arup’s staff to work and relax without noise distraction.
Speed of installation was key for this project, and Creatif’s experienced team - from our Project Managers through to Installation Specialists - were more than upto the task, delivering on time and on budget.
Philip Westwood, director of Overbury, commented: “Arup is one of our key partners so when we were invited to fit out the company’s own office space, we wanted to ensure that the project illustrated the quality of work we deliver together. “Working hand in hand with Arup, we have created an impressive fit out that will significantly improve the way the company operates.”

The end result... An environment which sounds as good as it looks!
