We’re a global engineering, management and development consultancy focused on guiding our clients through many of the planet’s most intricate challenges.

Sharing your ambitions

The needs of the world’s population are changing fast. Our network of experts, active in 150 countries, finds opportunities in complexity, turning obstacles into elegant, sustainable solutions. By looking at problems from a fresh angle, we aim to add value at every stage, for our clients – you – and the lives you touch every day.

Improvement is at the heart of what we offer: better economic development, better social and environmental outcomes, better businesses and a better return on your investment.

In partnership with you, we establish the steps to meet your strategic ambitions, using analytical front-end advice that helps you fund, plan, design, deliver and sustain your goals.

Advice that adds advantage

Our engineers, project and programme managers have taken lead roles in the world’s highest profile infrastructure and development projects.

Yet design and management are just the tip of a deep iceberg. Our clients have access to the vast knowledge of internationally recognised environmentalists, planners, economists, project finance advisors, cost consultants, business strategists and more. They work with each other and with you to save money and time, reduce risks, increase efficiency and advance best practice.

Whatever you need, you can be confident that Mott MacDonald will find efficient and creative ways of meeting your ambitions, and beyond.

Connecting with your world

Whatever your needs or ambitions and wherever in the world you are, we can align the right combination of expertise.

Working with us you get the advantages of size and stability that come from a US$2bn organisation. We employ over 16,000 people, delivering projects in Africa, Asia Pacific and Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America, and South Asia. But you get the kind of openness, friendliness and personal commitment you might associate with a much smaller business.

Mott MacDonald’s universe of creative thinkers is centred around our clients – you. We’re joined-up across sectors and geographies, giving you access to exceptional breadth and depth of expertise and experience. Over 80% of the work we do is for long-term or repeat clients, which we think underlines the great service we offer.

Research and advocacy project - Promoting pro-poor, climate compatible energy for poverty reduction


The overall aim of this project is to promote informed, inclusive and integrated local and national discussion of the economic, environmental and social cost-benefit analysis of different energy pathways for sustainable economic development and poverty reduction in Kenya. In particular, the aim is to frame this discussion from an “energy for national development” rather than – or rather than solely – a “climate protection” perspective in order to get greater political traction. The project comes at a critical time for influencing the implementation and financing of Kenya’s national energy and climate change policies . Kenya’s 2030 economic vision is for a 10% increase in GDP from 2012 onwards with energy as one of the key sectors for reform. In terms of its development needs, the Kenyan population is growing at a high rate, which has led to increase in demand for resources such as energy, food, and infrastructure – in the case of energy access, population growth is outstripping electrification. 67% of Kenyan citizens live in rural areas. Up to 90% of people living in these areas lack access to electricity, and rely on crude and unsustainable forms of energy supply such as traditional bio-mass. This project also reflects a crucial moment for local development in Kitui County, where CAFOD’s strategic partner Caritas Kitui works. Planned open-cast, lignite coal extraction in the Mui Basin, Kitui County starting in 2016 could have potentially devastating economic, social, and environmental impacts on local communities, including on their food and water security and their land rights. Again, there is a huge information and analysis gap among local communities, and other stakeholders, including County and National government, and Catholic Bishops on the implications of the coal investments for sustainable economic development and poverty reduction in Kitui. It is vital that a baseline study be carried out before any coal investment-related activities begin.
