Our heritage in Singapore dates back more than 100 years. We designed St James, Singapore’s first power station, in 1923.

Our team began working on the first metro East-West and North-South Line in 1973, when we were invited by the government to investigate alternative ways of providing a crossing over the Kallang River. Since then we’ve been committed to supporting public and private sector clients in driving growth in the region, particularly in the rail, road, tunnels, buildings, infrastructure, energy and water sectors.

We focus on delivering projects, which are designed safely, efficiently, durably and economically. Our team of over 250 experts are able to draw on the specialist knowledge of our global network of offices to provide our clients with a service that is second to none. Our local team also supports clients and colleagues globally.


Our transport team is a major contributor to Singapore’s infrastructure, this includes metros, aviation and underground roads.

First involved in the design of underground roads in 2002 on the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway – the longest underground road in South East Asia – the team moved on to the Marina Coastal Expressway, which won several industry awards, before commencing the design for the North-South Corridor.

Over the past 50 years, we’ve been involved in the design of 32 stations out of 145 mass rapid transit stations – 22% of the Singapore network.

These projects are all characterised by challenging ground conditions and the innovative design solutions that we’ve delivered to drive cost effective solutions for our clients.

The team specialises in major urban infrastructure and supports Mott MacDonald projects across the globe; much of its global workload is driven by its standing within the group as a global centre of excellence for underground infrastructure.

Our transport team provides one of the strongest practices for major transport infrastructure within Mott MacDonald.

Built environment

Our built environment team brings together a wealth of experience and specialist skills, all underpinned by our local knowledge and global reach. Our multi-disciplinary capabilities include civil & structural, mechanical, electrical, fire & public health, ELV system, environmental sustainability, acoustic and carbon management.

We provide an integrated set of services that encompass everything from the project shaping phase through digital design and construction efficiency to the optimisation of asset performance in use. We understand the value of information to our clients and help them realise the value that information can bring to their customers. We challenge conventional processes and incorporate innovation for maximum efficiency.

A few of our notable works include iconic and landmark developments such as Jewel Changi, Changi Airport Terminal 5, The Star, Marina Bay Apple Store, Mapletree Business City II, Galaxis, Sengkang Central, JTC Metal Machinery & Timber Hub, Marina East Desalination Plant and the Indian Heritage Centre.


Our water team uses international best practice and innovative solutions to solve the water sector’s key challenges: ageing infrastructure, population growth, water scarcity and climate change. Constantly searching for the opportunity to add value, we provide innovative, sustainable solutions for water supply, wastewater treatment and reuse, and water management.

Our skills range from planning, modelling and feasibility to detailed designs, procurement, contract management, commissioning, operations and digital optimisation. We have worked on projects covering the complex relocation of water and sewer networks, hydrology and flood risk management, design of new and upgrades to existing water and wastewater schemes, condition assessments and the maintenance of operational assets.

Within the region, we have recently completed the detailed design for the Changi Water Reclamation Plant upgrade in Singapore in 3D to 6D building information modelling (BIM), are delivering Palembang’s wastewater scheme in Indonesia and are implementing tools to forecast and mitigate against climate change in Bangkok and Vietnam.

We focus on delivering projects digitally by default, We are using BIM to unlock efficiencies, and our cloud-based analytics and visualisation service, Moata, to provide real-time insights on asset performance and optimisation.


To add value to our clients, our advisory team provides integrated and innovative solutions that leverage our multi-sectoral capabilities, deep technical knowledge, and advisory expertise.

Our Singapore office not only serves the national market, but also as a regional centre of excellence, bringing global expertise to the region. We specialise in providing services for the entire life of an asset. From developer and lender due diligence and assessment of climate, environment, and social factors to advanced controls of multidisciplinary, complex engineering and construction projects. Our team is motivated by a sense of social purpose to complete projects for our clients that are safe, ethical, long-term, and resilient.

We assist clients in Singapore ranging from major public sector bodies such as the Ministry of Health, with commercial management, strategic asset ownership advice to sovereign wealth funds, a commercial management office for Singapore based regional headquarters, and assistance to exciting private sector businesses.

We advise on project feasibility and value case, project and programme management, and asset optimisation.

Our energy team in Singapore works as an integrated part of our regional energy capability, leading diverse strands of the energy transition, both within Singapore and across the wider Asia Pacific region.

Flagship projects span interconnectors, energy storage, hydropower, renewable generation and policy advisory on decarbonisation and energy transformation – providing technical advisory and engineering support on energy assets across all phases of a project lifecycle, to operational and decommissioned.

Our clients include leading project sponsors, financiers, developers, independent power producers, and major energy users, as well as government and multilateral agencies.

We are engaged with one of Singapore’s major energy companies on a high-voltage, direct current interconnector project connecting the neighbouring countries to Singapore and are engaged to undertake risk assessment for electricity and subsea assets in Singapore. We are the independent engineer and detailed design for Waste-to-Energy projects and technical advisor for portfolios of solar projects in Singapore.

Working closely with our clients, we’re opening opportunities to develop responsible solutions and deliver the energy transition.
