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 progression towards the dynamic and continually evolving organisation we are today, now operating 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, multiskilled consultancies.
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 providing us with a strong base for growth in Brazil, South Africa’s PD Naidoo & Associates, bringing a multi-sector business to drive our expansion across Sub-Saharan Africa and lastly Bentley, a design and build company serving the UK water industry which joined us as a natural progression in our highly successful 15 year partnership, Mott MacDonald Bentley.
