CONTNUED steady growth in turnover was seen at Arup during 2002. Overall turnover for the period to March 31 this year exceeded £400m, with profits of over £20m. There was a 17% increase in global turnover, 3% increase in profit, and a stable profit margin of 5%, despite an 11% increase in staff numbers.

’There is no doubt that the coming year will be more challenging than the last, and we do not anticipate the same level of growth in the next financial year as we have enjoyed in this, but we are sure Arup will remain stable and profitable’, said Chairman Bob Emmerson.
