Mott MacDonald has been part of the engineering landscape in Canada for over 60 years. We’ve been behind many of the significant infrastructure projects that have shaped British Columbia, such as the iconic Sea-to-Sky Highway that supported the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
Mott MacDonald’s downtown Vancouver office was established in 2016. It represents our established engineering presence on the West Coast and our broader projects in the Lower Mainland and British Columbia. These projects can see our people working everywhere, from pristine mountain areas to the heart of Vancouver.
Our Vancouver team includes:
- Transport planners
- Project managers
- BIM technicians
- Data analysts and Project Controllers
- IT & Admin Support
We have a strong culture of collaboration across all of our disciplines. This allows us to deliver often complex and bespoke projects to clients in both the public and private sectors.
British Columbia’s Lower Mainland is one of the most densely populated areas in Canada. As demands on our local services continue to grow, new infrastructure is needed to support our communities. For many project owners in the region looking at urban development, Mott MacDonald is the trusted engineering and project management consultancy they use.

Your insight could make a difference to both small and large-scale infrastructure projects across British Columbia, throughout Canada and beyond.
Here are some of the engineering projects that you could be involved with through our Vancouver office:
Gateway Rail Assessment 2030
The Port of Vancouver is the third-largest port in North America, and Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has an ambitious vision to expand it even further. Mott MacDonald was retained by the port authority to carry out an extensive capacity study. We identified smart infrastructure opportunities on existing railway lines where investment could reduce congestion and improve the supply chain of trade coming in and out of the Port.
Our transport advisory consultants and rail engineers were essential to the on-schedule delivery of eight rail-related infrastructure proposals. Transport Canada responded to these with very positive feedback and praised the comprehensive detail of the documents we developed.
Burrard Inlet Rapid Transit Study
As businesses and communities expand along the Burrard Inlet, being able to quickly and easily travel between the North Shore and Vancouver is more and more vital.
Thanks to a robust local portfolio of engineering and transport design projects, we were asked to investigate how to improve travel between these two locations. The study will inform key decision makers on how to increase transit ridership, relieve traffic congestion, and support the communities of the North Shore.
Our team worked with a Partner Working Group to develop recommendations for a new rapid transport network between the North Shore and the City of Vancouver. Together we identified five potential crossings, and our experienced team of tunnel and bridge engineers drew up plans for three tunnel crossings and two bridges.
The complex projects we impact are transforming the experiences of millions of people. Do you have expertise in areas such as engineering, project management, design and infrastructure? Our engineering jobs in British Columbia could see you make a difference in how people live across the region.
The scale and complexity of our infrastructure development projects offer industry leading professional opportunities and development. In addition to this, our Vancouver office will support you with a fantastic working culture of continual learning and access to a wider global network of experts.
