Mott MacDonald is acting as the engineer for one of the world’s largest underground pumping stations which is over 100m deep, 50m in diameter and able to pump 3.3 million cu m of wastewater per day. Co-ordination using BIM was the key to smooth multidisciplinary design for a giant remote oil gathering station. Our client liked it so much, we’ve been asked back for more.

Middle East

Mott MacDonald has been working in the Middle East continuously for more than 50 years and one of the key elements of our long term success has been the dedication, drive, and quality of our staff.

I was inspired to join by my father who used to be Mott MacDonald’s client. He always spoke highly of the company and its staff.
