The name ‘Arcadis’ is derived from the ancient Greek Arcadia, the finest place to live on Earth, and the fire salamander, featured in its logo, requires a harmonious balance of clean water, soil, and air to survive.

Managing sustainable places through projects

If you ask an Arcadian about the work the company does, they will likely tell you about one of the projects through which Arcadis is creating and managing sustainable places where people can live, work and thrive. 

There is a good chance Arcadis is working on a project near you right now, whether it’s residential areas, schools, hospitals, data centers, distribution depots, industrial facilities or train and bus stations.
