Many of our engineers and scientists are recognised
as world class experts in their fields. We’ve been offering
specialist skills in the foundations and geotechnics sector for
over 30 years. Our origins, based in tunnel-ling, dates back to our
founders’ involvement in the development of London’s underground

As the consultancy in tunnelling grew, so did the need for in-house
geological and geotechnical advice. A permanent geological
capability was established in 1978 and this has since expanded into
a central capability including foundations engineering, to support
the Group's global spread.
Our specialist staff cover a diverse range of technical areas from
the geomorphology of landslips to the advanced numerical analysis
of ground structure interaction in urban tunnelling projects. We
provide management for ground-related risks and add value to
projects. As well as the provision of routine and innovative
geotechnical engineering work, across a wide range of small and
grand scale projects, we are developing new ideas with clients and
performing front-end studies that add considerable value to
Our team incorporates drafting and engineering technicians for
preparation of drawings and reports utilising the latest
computer-aided design and visualisation techniques.
Mott MacDonald is globally recognised for its unrivalled diversity.
Our presence extends world-wide, where staff are engaged in short
