Mott MacDonald has been making our mark on international sports for 70 years, with roles on some of the world's most spectacular stadia and leisure facilities. Our international expertise and technical skills cover every aspect of sports facility development, from feasibility studies, master planning, finance and transport planning to engineering, project management, operation and maintenance. 

What is our added value to ESSMA?

Our goal is to contribute to the on and off field success of Clubs and Stadiums by advising on interventions that maximise revenue from existing Stadium assets. The advice we provide is founded in delivery and remains constant throughout the process. We identify bankable solutions that create step-changes in revenue.

Products & Services

  • Operational Benchmarking: Using our in-house operational benchmarking tool that compares your venue’s projected or actual operational performance with the ‘optimised stadium’. We have a database formed of key data sets gathered from venues around the world, across multiple sports leagues. We capture electricity, gas, and water usage, maintenance – planned and reactive – security, and stewarding costs.
  • Revenue Capture and Enhancement: We identify opportunities to enhance revenue streams within existing stadium assets then develop business cases, targeting short Return on Investment periods, that suit funding options applicable to renovation of your stadium asset.
  • Value-based Technical Reviews: The independent audit of engineering design and costings prior to construction will help to mitigate project overspend and risks associated with innovative solutions. We have developed a value-based approach to identifying and minimising the budgetary, technical and quality risks associated with delivering these complex building types.
