Mott MacDonald wins contract for Mozambique

Mott MacDonald PDNA has been appointed by the Mozambique National Institute for Social Security (INSS) to supervise construction of a multi-functional building in Maputo.

The building is located in the centre of Maputo, on an intersection between two of the capital’s busiest roads. It will comprise two towers and a three-level underground basement. One of the towers will be 20 storeys, dedicated to apartment blocks. The other will be 17 storeys and will be used as offices.

Mott MacDonald PDNA will supervise the structural, civil, electrical, mechanical and geotechnical works. The team will comprise an architect, an engineer, a health and safety officer, an inspector of works and support staff based in Mozambique and South Africa.

Pedro Chilengue, Mott MacDonald PDNA’s project director, said: “The development is part of an INSS investment strategy to create revenue for its pensions and social welfare activities. Our team of experts will make careful recommendations on how construction should be managed.”

Construction is expected to complete in early 2017.
