Arup specialists working with humanitarian organisations.

Following the Indian Ocean tsunami in December 2004, Arup provided technical assistance during the immediate relief phase by seconding key staff to non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Subsequently, Arup advised humanitarian organisations on post-disaster reconstruction, advocating appropriate design and sound construction to prevent collapse following earthquakes.

Following the initiative of several stakeholders, the city was given a complete overhaul. A consortium was established to draft a Sustainable Reconstruction Plan (PRES). Arup was chosen to re-design the city’s waterfront and began by drafting a Sustainable Spatial Reconstruction Plan.
