Motts wins two urban development projects

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to provide consultancy services for a regeneration project in the north east of England and sewerage plant in India.

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to provide consultancy services for a £500M regeneration project in the north east of England and for a £29M sewerage and waste management project in India.

Turner & Townsend, South Tyneside Council and One North East have appointed Motts to provide civil, structural, infrastructure and sustainability technical consultancy service for the £500M South Shields Riverside Regeneration project in the north east of England.

The 35ha brownfield site is located near the mouth of the River Tyne and had been used for shipbuilding, glass production, saw mills and other industrial and dockside uses in the past. The planned redevelopment will open up the currently inaccessible river frontage to the public and will provide approximately 1,300 new homes and an anticipated 3,400 new jobs in the area. A “New Shore Park” will be created along the river frontage providing public access to the water edge.

Mott MacDonald is assisting with the planning, appraisal and assessment of key areas of the project including engineering and environmental input into masterplan development, design of the New Shore Park and remedial works to the river wall and riverside structures.

The State Investment Project Management and Implementation Unit (SIPMIU) of Shillong, the capital City of Meghalaya has commissioned Mott MacDonald for this important urban development project which is aimed at improving the environment and well-being of Shillong city dwellers.

Mott MacDonald will help SIPMIU by providing all technical and management consultancy services needed throughout the project design and construction phases. This will range from data collection and conducted geotechnical surveys to detailed engineering design, cost consultancy, technical procurement advice and construction supervision to compliance and handing over of assets.

With a capital value of around INR 2100M (£29M), the project is due for completion in 2015.
