Opening opportunities with connected thinking.
Turning obstacles into sustainable infrastructure and development solutions.
We’re a global engineering, management and development consultancy focused on guiding our clients through many of the planet’s most intricate challenges. Improvement is at the heart of what we offer: better economic development, better social and environmental outcomes, better businesses and a better return on investment.
We work best in partnership, helping our clients to establish the steps needed to meet their strategic ambitions, using analytical front-end advice that helps fund, plan, design, deliver and sustain their goals.
Advice that adds advantage
Our engineers, project and programme managers have taken lead roles in the world’s highest profile infrastructure and development projects. Yet design and management are just the tip of a deep iceberg. Our clients have access to the vast knowledge of internationally recognised environmentalists, planners, economists, project finance advisors, cost consultants, business strategists and more.
Connecting with your world
Mott MacDonald’s universe of creative thinkers is centred around our clients. Whatever your needs or ambitions and wherever in the world you are, we can align the right combination of expertise.
Working with us you get the advantages of size and stability that come from a US$2bn organisation. We employ over 16,000 people, delivering projects in Africa, Asia Pacific and Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America, and South Asia – 150 countries in all. But you get the kind of openness, friendliness and personal commitment you might associate with a much smaller business.
Doing what is right
Being employee-owned frees us to choose the work we take on and focus on the issues that are important to our clients – and us. We’re not in business to make the most profit for external shareholders: we want to do a great job for our clients, our communities and our people. We are independent in thought and action, which means we advise what is genuinely right for our clients, not what is easy.
We insist on the highest standards of integrity in all we do. We were the first consultancy firm to be certified to BS 10500, the UK’s anti-bribery management standard, recognised as the most stringent in the world.
Improving people’s lives
Our definition of sustainability is creating solutions and outcomes that bring long-term benefits for our clients and their communities. We’ve learned and shown that sustainable thinking delivers real value for our clients, for the communities we work in and for our own business, regardless of the sector or the challenges.
Many of our people joined their professions and us to make a difference. Working with governments, development banks and NGOs alongside blue chip companies, we have a direct positive impact on the lives of the poor and disadvantaged, in emerging and developed countries alike. Projects to improve health, education and life chances, to build climate resilience and to recover from natural disasters such as earthquakes and flooding are all in our portfolio, and will always be.
Sharing your ambition.
