Our long-term strategy to provide an all-inclusive engineering, management and development consultancy on a global scale features organic growth and planned acquisitions to increase our geographic spread, expand our range of services and introduce new expertise - all geared towards meeting the evolving needs of our customers around the world.
The Mott MacDonald Group was formed in 1989 with the merger of two long-established and well-known international engineering consultancies - Mott, Hay & Anderson, renowned for its contribution to transportation engineering, and Sir M MacDonald & Partners, distinguished by a long tradition of water-related projects.
This landmark union began our progression towards the dynamic and continually evolving organisation we are today, now operating from 170 principal offices with work in 140 countries across 12 core sectors - buildings, communications, education, environment, health, industry, international development, oil and gas, power, transport, urban development and water.
Our journey so far
Much of our growth has been organic, with key acquisitions accelerating our development into one of the world's most diverse multinational, multiskilled consultancies.
Here we highlight some of the companies to have played a key part in our journey so far – including our two newest contributors, Habtec Engenharia Ambiental providing us with a strong base for growth in Brazil, and South Africa’s PD Naidoo & Associates, bringing a multi-sector business to drive our expansion across Sub-Saharan Africa.
