Mott MacDonald has been helping deliver projects in Turkey since 1972. Today we are contributing to the development of the country’s power, water, transport, education and health sectors.

We've acted as lender's technical advisor on seven privately financed airports in Turkey.

Infrastructure investment is being driven by economic growth, the country’s increasing importance in international trade and its potential to become a member state of the EU. As well as providing technical solutions, we have been helping plan investments and advising on project finance.

Management consultancy

We worked for the agency of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs, EVD, helping the Turkish Export Promotion Centre, IGEME, strengthen its capacity to train Turkish enterprises in international trade and business with other European countries. Our team assisted IGEME in improving the image of the Turkish business sector as a partner, to align trade promotion activities with enterprise needs and to enhance the business support networks.

Another key assignment – Strengthening the Turkish Patent Institute project – aimed to promote the use of industrial property rights among the country’s small and medium enterprise (SME) sector to enhance innovation and competitiveness. Our team acted as team leader, providing expertise on SME development, capacity building and information and communication.


Turkey has expanded several international airports using private finance to create world class facilities. Our aviation experts have provided technical support on seven around the country.

The Ankara Airport terminal project was awarded the 2005 Euromoney European Airport Project Finance Deal of the Year as the first large project finance deal in the country.

We also assisted the European Bank and local authority on the country’s first street-running tramway – the Estram scheme in Eskisehir – which won the 2004 UITP Tramway of the Year Award.
