Outstanding International Design Project: San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, USA

Hatch Mott MacDonald (HMM), was programme manager for this US$6.4B bridge. As part of a joint venture with URS, and with extensive input from Mott MacDonald colleagues in the UK, HMM helped cut project costs by US$400M by redesigning components to simplify fabrication and procuring globally. Only rarely can a construction project be described as unique, but this structure truly is a world first. It’s currently the world's widest bridge and also the longest single-tower, self-anchored suspension bridge in the world.

Outstanding International Leadership Award: Turkish Hospitals PPP Programme

We are the sole international technical advisor for this US$14 billion programme, which will see 35 hospitals increase healthcare capacity in Turkey by 30,000 beds. Investment decisions are based on our due diligence advice, and the Turkish Ministry of Health and the project sponsors have sought our feedback on how contracts and proposals can be made acceptable to the international investment community. Our key leadership role in securing investment saw several of the hospital schemes achieve financial close in 2014. We’re also providing monitoring services through construction and the 25 year operational period of these PPP projects.

Outstanding International Development in a Fragile State (Infrastructure) Project: Reconstruction of Transport and Education Infrastructure, Pakistan

Infrastructure has been severely damaged by conflict in Pakistan’s northern border region – a situation compounded by flooding. The Department for International Development (DFID) Pakistan initiated a project to provide relief and act as an exemplar for future reconstruction. We’re providing design, supervision and monitoring and evaluation services for the project, which involves construction of 40 schools and 66 bridges. The schools are completed and benefiting 6500 girls and 2300 boys previously accommodated in tents or even educated in the open air. The bridges will be completed by June and will benefit 4M people by improving access to markets, schools and clinics, and increasing economic activity and the pace of wider reconstruction.

Alongside these winning entries, we were highly commended in a fourth category:

Outstanding International Master Planning Project: The Helmand River Basin Master Plan, Afghanistan

For much of the last 30 years Helmand Province has been beset by conflict that has made normal planning processes impossible and kept the 7m residents of the Helmand River Basin in poverty. However, Mott MacDonald has made innovative use of remote sensing to understand land use and agriculture and produce a master plan for the sustainable use and integrated management of water resources. The aim is to stimulate economic growth, agricultural development, improved livelihoods and poverty reduction, and improvements are already helping to sustain local agriculture and food security.
