Mott MacDonald is one of the world’s largest employee-owned companies.
That translates into real care for individuals. The firm seeks to provide the opportunity for staff to pursue their interests and apply their skills to make a positive difference. Its aim is that, whatever it is that staff are passionate about, they can find a channel for it and, in doing so, create a rewarding lifelong career.
With no external shareholder priorities to influence decision making, Mott MacDonald is independent in thought and action and sets out to give advice that is right for its clients.
The firm is investing heavily in technology and innovation. It was an early adopter of building information modelling (BIM) for infrastructure, holding one of the industry’s first
BIM workshops in 2011 to build awareness, encourage adoption, address risks and challenges, and spot opportunities.
It has been working with clients and partners to advance BIM theory and practice ever since. In tandem, it has launched a global design centre that supports the embedded BIM practitioners within project teams across the company, worldwide.
The design centre provides the concentrated expertise and computing power needed to deliver the largest and most complex BIM-oriented projects.
It’s used object-oriented BIM to design the $500M (£312.5M) temporary infrastructure overlay for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, enabling unprecedented testing of different configuration options and reducing design time/resource by over 80%.
Mott MacDonald takes a position on global issues. It has co-authored the new standard for managing capital and operational carbon in infrastructure, PAS 2080, and has highlighted the potential for engineers to mitigate climate change, while achieving economic efficiencies, by contributing a model to and sponsoring the UK and China launches of the Global Calculator, developed by the UK government.
