With a track record spanning over 20 years, Mott MacDonald has established itself as a leading engineering consultancy in Hungary. Our team in Budapest has access to the Group’s global technical and management resources. This combination of local and international knowledge means we offer an unrivaled range of services in sectors such as transport, buildings, water, environment, and energy.

We've carried out many environmental impact assessments for biorefinery plants, biomass power plants, motorways as well as a natural gas storage facility.

Foundation and geotechnics

We have extensive experience in providing feasibility studies, tender design, detailed design, technical expertise reports, due diligence works, and design supervision.

Our integrated approach to handling complex geotechnical engineering problems draws on the diverse experience of our specialists. Since our knowledge covers the whole geotechnical engineering field – from structural engineering to environmental engineering and hydrogeology – we can deliver the highest quality in all our projects.

Structural engineering

Our structural engineering team can manage any stage of the design process from authority plans to detailed design, and any element of construction works: site supervision, inspection, maintenance, and strengthening over the whole life cycle of structures. Our capabilities also include a wide variety of bridge engineering tasks, from check calculations of load-carrying capacity and bridge assessments to reconstruction projects for steel, concrete, and composite bridges.

BIM/CAD/GIS software

With leading-edge expertise in a wide range of engineering-purpose software, we provide optimized solutions with enhanced performance and greater predictability.

Our staff possess decades of experience in drawing and design, automated or batch processing, full 3D modeling and in building information modelling (BIM) environments. We provide software development, data entry, and management, as well as the training of, and programming for, engineering software and geographic information systems (GIS).

We have full access to all discipline-specific AutoCAD and MicroStation CAD-GIS-BIM software applications through our corporate license.

Infrastructure finance

Our award-winning technical advice can be applied to infrastructure developments in any sector.

We applied our global expertise as lenders’ technical advisor for the M6 motorway P3 project, providing services from the bid submission through to financial close. The project covered three privately financed motorway sections: the 34-mile (55-kilometer) section between Érd and Dunaújváros, the 50-mile (80-kilometer) section between Szekszárd and Pécs, and the 40-mile (65-kilometer) section between Dunaújváros and Szekszárd.
