Mott MacDonald has launched a new strategic advisory service to help clients navigate complex organisational challenges, remain agile, de-risk their business, improve performance, reduce costs and unlock future value in their business models.

The offer recognises clients face increasingly complex challenges and opportunities around net zero, energy transition, climate resilience, digital transformation, and environmental and social outcomes.

The move bolsters Mott MacDonald’s long-established advisory and programme delivery business, operating across the built environment, education, healthcare, communications, defence, energy, environment, transport and water sectors. 

Andy Moulds, who heads up the new strategic advisory business in the UK and Europe said: “This new service combines strategic advisory expertise with Mott MacDonald’s deep engineering heritage. I am tremendously excited about the combined value our technical domain knowledge, digital innovation and consulting excellence with our network of collaborative partners can bring to our clients. 

“Our trusted advice ensures clients not only thrive, but remain agile and resilient in a volatile world”.

The new strategic advisory business has four complimentary areas of focus:

Strategic asset management: Long-term investment planning and prioritisation, managing and mitigating risk, building sustainability and resilience whilst driving value across the existing asset base.

Business change: Empowering people and organisational change across business transformation, business improvement and innovation management.

Digital transformation: Combining technical domain experience with new ways of working through data and information, technology and business model adoption.

Value chain: Enabling supply-chain, procurement and programme structuring transformation throughout the client ecosystem.

Doug Wilson, global sector leader, advisory, said: “As a business we want to enable clients to identify the key challenges to delivering their organisation objectives and plan for tackling the sources of uncertainty, offering alternative and creative views on their future investment requirements and responses to external change. 

“This can include post-pandemic recovery, resource availability, enabling climate resilience or responding to digital or energy transformation. We remain collaborative, pragmatic and outcomes-focused in shaping and implementing transformational change that recognises the increasing need for systems thinking to deliver demonstrable social, economic and environmental value”.
