Mott MacDonald is a world-leading development, engineering and management consultancy who provide human factors solutions to a wide client base.

Our understanding of complex and large scale assignments helps ensure that our human factors interventions are clearly targeted and become an integrated part of the design process.

With the ability to draw on the multi-disciplinary resources of Mott MacDonald Group, we are uniquely positioned to use the knowledge and experience of engineers, architects and operational and maintenance specialists to turn project ideas into reality. We also have access to cutting edge technology and the facilities to apply techniques such as passenger flow modelling and visualisation to assess the impact of ergonomic proposals.
