The Mott MacDonald Group is a global engineering, management and development consultancy with headquarters in the UK. It was founded in 1989 and employs 16,000 staff in 150 countries. Mott MacDonald is one of the largest employee-owned companies in the world.
Mott Macdonald’s Leeds office had a high percentage of employees requiring their own workstation, but the company also required their people to embrace new working practices. Mott Macdonald wanted to encourage agile working and co-working through the provision of quiet areas, breakout zones and lockers and they wished to offer hot desking areas for employees visiting from other locations. There was to be a synergy and alignment between Mott Macdonald’s other recently completed offices in terms of design. However, a degree of autonomy was encouraged, as each location is given the opportunity to personalise their Mott Macdonald workplace in terms of the approved brand colours they use and the engineering sectors they accommodate.
“We are delighted with our new workplace design in Leeds – one of our many bases around the world. This new office is attractive, full of natural light and contemporary, but also extremely practical and professional – as befits our business.
The new layout gives our people many different working options, along with ample, practical space to work collaboratively and lots of extra storage.
Thanks to Ben Johnson Interiors, we now have the ideal working space for a global engineering management and development consultancy.”
