The long-standing joint venture between Mott MacDonald and Canadian civils consultancy Hatch has been split into two businesses.
Hatch Mott MacDonald (HMM) – created in 1995 – will become two companies, one in the US and one in Canada.
The Canadian business will become part of Hatch, and the US company part of Mott MacDonald.
HMM’s Pipelines business, which operates in Canada and the US, will join Mott MacDonald.
HMM currently has 3,000 staff and 77 offices throughout North America.
Mott MacDonald chief executive Keith Howells and Hatch chief executive John Bianchini said in a joint statement: “At a time of significant renewal in North American infrastructure, this change allows Hatch and Mott MacDonald and the staff of HMM to build and invest in new ways.”
The new arrangements are expected to be finalised by early 2016.
