We believe in driving change and creating long-term value by delivering projects that have positive social and environmental impact, contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals, and combat climate change. SS Acharya, Managing Director of Mott MacDonald's South Asia business

Urban development

We lead the UK government-funded Climate Resilient Cities for Shared Prosperity (CReSP) programme which aims to bring about transformational change in the way urban programmes are delivered in India. It focuses on driving inclusive economic growth, improved climate resilience and shared prosperity.

In Uttar Pradesh, we have helped to kickstart a project that aims to build more than 25,000 affordable flats covering 1.85M square metres over the next seven years.


For more than 15 years we have been designing distribution networks for compressed natural gas, covering more than 30% of India’s districts, helping to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

Our experts work closely with India’s leading power producers to increase solar capacity. We have supported the installation of ground mounted solar power systems with a capacity of 8.8GW, creating long-term employment for local people, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and energy costs.


We are supporting the Government of India to build sustainable urban transport systems – reducing air pollution, fuel consumption and road congestion, including the development of 92km of dedicated rapid bus transit routes and training over 4000 officials in sustainable transport practices.

We have supported the design and construction of metro systems in Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kolkata, and Mumbai.

We were the master planners for the new runway and terminal building at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.

Industrial transformation

We advised Asahi Glass India on materials and construction methods to optimise costs and benefits, improve thermal efficiency and reduce waste.

We’ve worked with chemical plants to transform them into multi-product plants that can manufacture different types of pesticides, maximising their asset utilisation.

We’re helping our clients to create facilities that support the health and wellbeing of employees and foster inclusion.

As lead project management and construction supervision consultant on the Visakhapatnam-Chennai Industrial Corridor, a key part of the East Coast Economic Corridor, we are responsible for delivering state-of-the-art transport, energy, and industrial infrastructure.

Water supply and conservation

We ensured economic viability of India’s largest water infrastructure project serving 11.8M people in Mumbai and its suburbs.

Under the National Mission for Clean Ganga initiative, one treatment facility serving 1.7M people in the Greater Kolkota region is powered entirely by biogas generated during water sanitation.

We have delivered sewerage projects in the state of Gujarat, helping to reduce contamination of groundwater, water supply pipelines and coastal waters. We are project manager and design consultant for a sustainable coastal protection project in Karnataka.


In Assam, we helped deliver 11 cancer care hospitals widening access to timely and affordable cancer treatment for 17,500 more people.

We helped to upgrade seven hospitals to COVID-19 treatment centres in less than 90 days during the first wave of the pandemic in 2020.

We are the global management agent for the UK government's Fleming Fund programme, which plays a critical role in combating drug resistance. Our India office manages grants for India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Indonesia.


We supported India’s Ministry of Minority Affairs to provide education and skills training to 100,000 students from minority groups.

We supported the government of India’s flagship programmes to improve the quality of secondary (Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan) and primary education (Sarv Shiksha Abhiyaan). This included training staff from the National Council of Educational Research and Training and state institutions to use international assessment techniques and advanced evaluation methodologies.
