Our long-term strategy is to provide an all-inclusive engineering, management, and development firm on a global scale. Through organic growth and planned acquisitions, we have increased our geographic spread, expanded our range of services, and introduced new expertise: all geared towards meeting the evolving needs of our customers around the world.
The Mott MacDonald Group was formed in 1989 with the merger of two long-established and well-known international engineering consultancies: Mott, Hay & Anderson, renowned for its contribution to transportation engineering, and Sir M MacDonald & Partners, distinguished by a long tradition of water-related projects.
This landmark union began our progress toward the dynamic and continually evolving organization we are today. Mott MacDonald now operates from 180 principal offices in 50 countries across 12 core sectors: buildings, communications, education, environment, health, industry, international development, oil and gas, power, transport, urban development, and water.
Our journey so far
Much of our growth has been organic, with key acquisitions accelerating our development into one of the most diverse, multinational, and multiskilled consulting firms in the world.
Here we highlight some of the companies to have played a key part in our journey so far. These include our most recent contributors. Habtec Engenharia Ambiental provides us with a strong base for growth in Brazil. South Africa’s PD Naidoo & Associates offers a multisector business to drive our expansion across Sub-Saharan Africa. Bentley, a design and build company serving the UK water industry, joined us as a natural development in our highly successful 15-year partnership, Mott MacDonald Bentley.
