Well-designed water supply and foul and sanitation drainage systems are essential to healthy and sustainable buildings. Arup's environmental services engineers (also known as public health engineers) tackle a range of design challenges. Additionally, on some projects, our environmental services engineers also carry out civil engineering tasks such as below ground drainage design, flood risk analysis and specialist road and pavement designs along with associated earthworks required for new and existing building construction.     

Global water scarcity is on the rise and the design of sustainable water management systems helps save water and the energy associated with its use, from pumping to heating. From sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) to water reuse, our expertise helps clients to make better use of water and energy, and to make their buildings and construction sites more resilient.  

Together with Arup's mechanical and electrical engineers, we provide an integrated building services offering. We also collaborate with water engineers to ensure that plumbing and infrastructure work together, in sympathy with the complete water cycle. Our environmental services team offers our clients a broad spectrum of expertise and consulting services in a wide range of developments, such as commercial and residential developments, Universities, colleges and schools, hospitals and healthcare buildings, laboratories and research facilities, transport projects, including airports and rail stations, sports facilities and stadia, theatres and performance venues, museums and art galleries, large-scale industrial and manufacturing facilities and data centres.
