Mott MacDonald has been driving development in Pakistan for over 50 years. Initially, we were involved in delivering land and water resources projects. Today we cover a broad range of projects from many sectors.

We've worked on five hydropower projects in Pakistan, hugely increasing the country's electricity generation.

With offices in Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi, we have successfully completed many prestigious contracts in Pakistan. Our local expertise and experience have grown rapidly.

Our work in Pakistan has been internationally recognized. The Ghazi Barotha Hydropower project won the Energy Institute International Platinum Award and the Sukkur Barrage project won the British Construction Industry Award.

Since 2009 we have provided technical assistance to the provincial governments of Pakistan with the aim of strengthening systems for the planning and delivery of maternal, newborn, and child health services throughout the country. We're also supporting the development of "roadmaps" required to enhance Pakistan’s health sector’s capacity to implement effective and well managed programs, to develop innovative and evidence-based effective policies related to reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition, and to improve public financial management.

We're providing support to Punjab government to improve access, equity, quality, and relevance of education. We have supported the rollout of an innovative nonsalary financing reform in all government schools. In the first year alone, this will improve the learning conditions of 15,000 schools and the life chances of 2.8 million students.

Water and environment

In the arid Sindh province, our local knowledge, stakeholder engagement, and technical engineering skills are being used to restore effective irrigation to thousands of farmers. The five-year $150 million program funded by the World and Asian Development Banks is key to the long-term sustainability of agriculture.

In Rawalpindi, most people received water for only a few hours each day and the sewerage system was inadequate. We improved the water and sewerage services through rehabilitation of the existing works and construction of new water supply and sewerage facilities. We enabled the provision of a safe and reliable water supply and improved the urban situation for the population of Rawalpindi City.


For the Thar coalfield development in Sindh, we’re assessing environmental and social risks and opportunities, planning land use, and developing mitigation proposals to enable development of a new coal mine and power station. We are identifying the most acceptable ways to harness one of the world’s largest coal deposits, with a view to environmental and social sustainability and maximum local as well as national economic benefit.


Our work with the Water & Power Development Authority (WAPDA) has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years.

Design is under way on the $700 million extension of Tarbela Dam, which we are leading. By finding efficiencies such as using irrigation water for electricity generation as well, we are enabling 40% more electricity to be generated than originally envisaged – increasing the extension’s capacity to 1.4 gigawatts.

We're providing construction supervision for the Kurram Tangi Dam, which will provide flood defense and irrigation and generate 84 megawatts of electricity.

Previously we provided design services on three other major hydroelectricity projects on the river Indus: the 840-megawatt Sukki Kinari, the 7,100-megawatt Bunji, and the 1,450-megawatt Ghazi-Barotha project, which won the Energy Institute International Platinum Award.

For the HUBCO Power Company we are owner’s engineer for a 213-megawatt diesel-fueled power station at Narowal, Punjab, which provides a robust, efficient design to alleviate the country’s acute power shortage.
