Materials Consulting at Arup exists to ensure materials are used appropriately, working with our colleagues in other Arup disciplines, and external clients; enabling them to manage their costs, programme and risk and helping the owners of existing assets to understand and solve problems.

Everything in the built environment relies on the use of materials. As a consequence, the materials team enjoy the opportunity to work in virtually every market that Arup work in, providing specialist materials advice. With experts in concrete, metals, glass, stone, brick, ceramics, timber and composites, we advise at all stages of a project, from concept design through the full life-cycle.

Our specialists explore different combinations of materials, devise test programmes and carry out design and field research. This is based on knowledge – from tried and tested processes, such as forming and fabricating metals, to using glass structurally in adventurous new ways, and selecting more sustainable materials and processes to reduce resource consumption and environmental impacts.

We apply materials in novel and challenging ways, focussing on the importance of context. For our clients this means enhanced choice, based on optimised cost/value and reduced risks. We are passionate about making materials work and many of our team are members of or advisors to influential industry bodies. Our advice is truly independent and based on the most appropriate solution for a given application because our materials specialists are not linked to material suppliers and do not need to provide work for an in-house test facility.

We reduce our clients' risk and provide freedom of choice, particularly when involved in the early stages of a project. This enables our clients to design and build more innovative, challenging and valuable projects. Our rigorous research on materials and manufacturing methods provides reassurance that the materials are used appropriately, aesthetically and cost effectively to produce a robust and durable solution.

We are looking for a Summer Intern for a 6 week period between June and August in 2024.
