“Partnering with people we trust and respect….”
WALSH has successfully negotiated a multitude of complex projects since 1961. Working collaboratively with all of our project partners is a hallmark of our company.
We consistently implement the fundamental tenets of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) and Lean Construction on all of our projects– reducing waste, enhancing collaboration, aligning goals and incentives, and focusing our work in a way that creates the greatest value.
It all starts with a team who understands a collaborative philosophy, effective leadership and a focus on the greater good of a project.
True collaboration comes from open communication, responsibility, and mutual trust.
The philosophy of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) joins people, systems, business structures and practices through all phases of work. Lean Construction is about managing and improving the construction process to most efficiently meet a client’s wants and needs.
Our extensive experience with preconstruction planning, 3D modeling systems, constructability reviews and other preplanning proccesses has taught us that our first job is to carefully listen to the client’s goals. We work hard to see the project from the owner’s and design team’s perspectives so that we respect both functional and aesthetic goals. Every project has its own blend of aesthetics, function, durability, first cost and life cycle costs – it is our job to find the unique balance among these to best meet our client’s needs.
