Who we are

We improve everyday quality of life by creating spaces where people want to live, work and play, improving mobility and making best use of our natural resources. Throughout our long history as a leading design and engineering consultancy, we have never stopped innovating. Whether looking at how connected and autonomous vehicles will impact our cities or how we can meet the UK’s growing data needs, through to how companies can improve their workplace environment or how to digitise road and rail infrastructure, we are proud to be at the forefront of designing a world for the next generation.

We're proud to work alongside some of the world’s most innovative city bodies to improve quality of life.

One of the privileges of being at Arcadis is working on some of the most challenging construction, infrastructure and environmental projects across the country.

  • Over 100,000 families will live in homes we helped build
  • We were involved in 19 capital projects for UCL over 12 months
  • We have delivered £300m of student accommodation in the UK

Arcadis’s competitive landscape is rapidly changing: with altering client patterns, a rapidly increasing shift to digital, and industry consolidation – we have a scarcity of qualified people.

Our future will be defined by our people.


Mega trends and the changing competitive landscape create opportunities for society, our clients and stakeholders. Opportunities lie in co-creating sustainable and resilient cities, building smart infrastructure solutions and the joint development of future-proofed industries.
