North America

Our business in North America is thriving. With over 2300 staff in 64 US and Canadian cities, Mott MacDonald is delivering pivotal projects in the transport, water, oil and gas sectors, plus projects in education, power, buildings, and infrastructure finance.


Mott MacDonald was selected to provide programme management services for the design and construction of the Airbus Final Assembly Line, in association with Hoar Program Management. Airbus has become the first new manufacturer of large commercial aircraft in the US in more than 40 years.

Highways and bridges

We are providing programme management and monitoring design and construction of the new $6 billion, 1.6km San Francisco-Oakland Bay self-anchored suspension bridge. A range of technical, logistical and procurement proposals shaved US$400 million off the projected delivery cost.


We are providing programme and construction management for the US$7.3 billion East Side Access project in New York city, connecting the Long Island Rail Road line into Grand Central Station – America’s largest infrastructure project. Conditions range from soft ground in Queens to hard rock under Manhattan, requiring a huge variety of tunnelling techniques.


We are subconsultant and programme manager for the downtown rail extension of the $4.2 billion Transbay Transit Centre in San Francisco. The transit centre will house nine bus and rail systems in one facility, making it the largest of its kind west of New York City.

Having implemented the water system geographic information system, the team is now helping develop an integrated water distribution and sewer collection system.

Ports and coastal

An award-winning project on the Gulf Coast of Texas reopened Cedar Bayou more than 30 years after it was bulldozed to keep an oil spill from washing ashore at a wildlife refuge. The reopened bayou serves as an ecological lifeline, revitalising the habitat for fish, crabs, and the endangered whooping crane.
