Wednesday, 02 April, 2014

Technology and consulting company AWT has joined Mott MacDonald Group, a global management, engineering and sustainable development consultancy. The move is part of Mott MacDonald’s business strategy to broaden the services the company offers in the Australasia region.

AWT has provided science and engineering services across the water sector for over 20 years. Employing around 50 engineers and scientists in its offices in Auckland and Melbourne, the company provides technical solutions spanning the entire project cycle. Mott MacDonald’s presence in Australia and New Zealand meanwhile spans 40 years, providing services in areas as diverse as buildings, transport, water and public private partnerships.

“AWT adds a strong water capability to our existing New Zealand business in buildings and transport as part of our strategy to build a multi-sector business,” said Mott MacDonald Chairman Keith Howells. “It strengthens our water expertise in Australia and throughout the region. AWT’s specialist focus on the science and technology of water also enhances Mott MacDonald’s technical edge for the benefit of projects worldwide.”

“Becoming part of a global company is great news for our staff and our clients,” said AWT Executive Director Steve Couper. “There will be opportunities for our team to work on challenging agenda setting projects and our clients will benefit from the international knowledge, experience and expertise the group possesses. It provides us with a fantastic platform to expand our services and the business in the region.”
