Mott MacDonald engineer on Queen’s New Year’s Honours list

Stephen Taylor, of Mott MacDonald’s North American company Hatch Mott MacDonald, has been awarded a CBE in the 2005 New Year’s Honour’s for services to civil engineering in the USA.

Stephen has recently been involved in the design of the Boston Central Artery jacked tunnels and contributed towards $300 million in savings on the world’s largest jacked tunnels project. The innovative design has won ten awards and involved jacking three full-sized interstate highway tunnels under an operating commuter railway in downtown Boston. Each of the three tunnels is over ten times the size of any jacked tunnels attempted in the US before, the largest well over 100 metres long with sections weighing up to 30 000 tonnes.

Stephen says, “I am thrilled to be honoured with this award, and feel that there are so many people that have made it possible. I share this award with my family, especially my wife and also with the many, many engineers and others who have helped, educated and inspired me over the years.”
