(Principal consultant)

Mott MacDonald in North America currently offers a total of 2,300 staff delivering engineering projects from 64 cities across the US and Canada. Texas is an important part of that business, with a diverse and impactful project portfolio that is expanding all the time.

The second largest state in the US is growing, with the current population set to double by 2050. As well as the demands on infrastructure this creates, Texas faces environmental challenges such as natural disasters and landscape change.

As a global engineering, management, and development company, Mott MacDonald brings together local and international expertise to address complex challenges. In Texas, these include energy infrastructure security, battling coastal erosion, and expanding transport networks.

Our Texas offices support over 120 colleagues that include these:

  • Civil engineers
  • Renewable energy engineers
  • Oil and gas engineers
  • Coastal engineers
  • Transportation planners
  • Software engineers
  • Surveyors
  • GIS specialists
  • AutoCAD technicians
  • Project managers
  • Data analysts

Looking for a challenging new step for your engineering career or to make a difference to the day-to-day experience of millions of Texans? Join our team in making an impact on major public and private projects. From surveys to wind turbines, coastal erosion to solar panels, our professionals are working on top projects to transform and protect infrastructure and natural environments for Texans across the state.

Five Mott MacDonald offices are home to our engineering jobs in Texas. These are located in Austin, Corpus Christi, West Houston, Pearland, and The Woodlands.

Our most recognizable projects in Texas include the following:

Whistler Pipeline

After our client was impressed by our performance on a previous pipeline project, Mott MacDonald was retained to oversee the construction of the new Whistler Pipeline. This 42-inch-diameter pipeline will bring natural gas over 450 miles from West Texas to South Texas.

Our people were essential to many aspects of the Whistler Pipeline construction. Mott MacDonald teams were responsible for project management and controls, procurement, construction planning, engineering, coordinating surveys, carrying out environmental impact assessments and establishing right-of-way from nearly 1,000 different landowners.

Digital team colleagues helped connect these different activities through two of our exclusive software tools, Moata Insights and Fieldbook. Our Moata Insights tool collates critical data on schedules, permits, and budget in real-time dashboards for the client and external stakeholders. Similarly, Mott MacDonald’s Fieldbook software uses GIS mapping to coordinate field activities, plans, and data across different engineering and construction teams.

Collaborating across engineering disciplines has resulted in a safe and successful project execution, even through the challenges of COVID-19. As a result, the Whistler Pipeline will become operational in the third quarter of 2021 and be capable of transporting 2 billion cubic feet of natural gas every day.

Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Feasibility Project

For this project, Mott MacDonald identified measures to protect vulnerable communities and habitats from coastal storms in over 18 coastal counties. The team created complex models of how storm surges and inland rainfall combine, and used the simulations to identify and test solutions against flooding.

As well as designs for new infrastructure such as pumping stations and flood gates, the team also suggested natural measures such as the restoration of ecosystems and barrier islands to be the first line of defense against storms. The Mott MacDonald teams in Texas collaborated with federal and state agencies to evaluate natural resources, collect geotechnical data, and analyze the potential restorative impact for habitats and wildlife populations.

IH-35 Capital Express Central

IH-35 in downtown Austin is themost congested highway in Texas. Two new managed lanes are being opened in each direction along a significant central stretch of the freeway, and Mott MacDonald is providing tunnel engineering and design support.

These improvements stand to reduce the congestion, remove potential barriers to business and economic development, and set the city of Austin up to accommodate future population growth.

Mott MacDonald in Texas delivers a range of projects across disciplines that are supporting critical infrastructure and the natural environment.
