Hong Kong

Mott MacDonald’s influence in shaping Hong Kong’s urban environment can be seen in its striking skyline. Since 1957, we have contributed to the design and development of many iconic landmarks and vital infrastructure.

We were the first consultancy firm to sign the Hong Kong government’s Carbon Reduction Charter, committing us to cut our footprint on work done for the government.

,Today we have over 500 staff in Hong Kong providing the full spectrum of design, engineering, planning and advisory services in a range of sectors: from buildings, urban development and transport, to water, wastewaterm and environment.

The innovative solutions our teams are developing bring the best value and benefits to our clients as well as the communities impacted by projects – now and in the future.

Our reputation for technical excellence is acknowledged by prestigious institutions such as the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE), Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Architectural Services Department of Hong Kong, and many others.


We've been working continuously at the Hong Kong International Airport for more than 20 years. We set out the development strategy and led the design of Terminal 1, Terminal 2, and the North Satellite Concourse. Currently we are designing two of the airport’s current major expansion projects, the Midfield Concourse and the third runway, and we are providing planning, lighting, and fire and life safety service for the Western Apron.

Creation of the Lantau Link was recommended in the Port and Airport Development Strategy we produced for the Hong Kong government in 1989. We had leading roles throughout the project, providing concept and detailed designs for the £600 million Tsing Ma Bridge and concept design and specification for the £180 million Kap Shui Mun Bridge. We managed construction of the whole Lantau Link, plus the 8-mile (12.5-kilometer) North Lantau Expressway.

For the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge we were the lead contractor’s designer for the 5.8-mile (9.4-kilometer) viaduct section at the Hong Kong end of this dual three-lane link with Macau and China. We supervised design and construction of the 19-mile (30-kilometer) Chinese section of the link, including a major cable-stayed bridge, two man-made islands and a 4-mile (6-kilometer) immersed tube tunnel across the Pearl River estuary. The $1.7 billion (HK$12.9 billion) project is the largest single design and build contract ever awarded in Hong Kong.

We were appointed as contractor’s designer for the MTR Corporation’s Shatin to Central Link (SCL). The work comprises the construction of two new underground stations in the densely populated Kowloon City and one mile (1.6 kilometers) of twin-bored tunnel.

For the Lok Ma Chau rail terminus, border control, transport interchange, and wastewater treatment facilities we provided civil, structural, building services, and architectural design, project management, construction supervision, and environmental monitoring. The station and border crossing are designed to handle 250,000 people per day.


We have worked on a number of significant building projects in the territory. We provided detailed design for the 160-bed North Lantau Hospital. Comprising an eight-story hospital block above a multilevel car park, it will specialize in surgery, orthopedics, and traumatology.

For the Tung Chung Swimming Pool we were responsible for structural engineering and geotechnical aspects for this double-award-winning project.


We have produced drainage master plans for both east and west Kowloon. Following these, we designed a drainage tunnel to carry stormwater under densely developed Tsuen Wan New Town to the sea. The tunnel intakes intercept as much runoff as possible during rainstorms but keeps water flowing in streams during normal conditions. We're now supervising construction.

We are independent consultant for Hong Kong’s first sludge incineratorm which will be the world’s largest. The plant will be capable of processing 2,000 metric tons of sludge per day, with just 10% of the residue being disposed of in landfills.
