Meet the Walsh team

Ben Ransom

Since joining Walsh in 1999, Ben has gained specific expertise in post-tensioned and traditional reinforced concrete high-rise structures, and has found the hotel, retail and residential industries to be of considerable interest. He also has extensive experience in masonry and timber design. On his assigned projects as a Director, Ben is responsible for successful technical delivery and the day-to-day project monitoring and co-ordination. He is also the Director in charge of quality assurance, a role requiring highly analytical skills and diverse experience.

Ben has a passion for new technology and prides himself with being up to date with the latest design software. He refers to himself as a ‘lean designer’, only creating what is necessary for the desired build – no structure wasted. Always organised and thorough, Ben has been an enthusiastic and reliable leader from the start, running his first project just three months into his role at Walsh. He relishes the advancement of colleagues and the company itself, being instrumental in gaining Walsh the ISO 9001 certification. Ben’s great ambition and drive, means he is confident leading a big team, such as the team on the Woolwich Central project. This multi-disciplinary project gained much praise and prompted comment in the trade press.

“Being a structural engineer I can see, and am proud of, the positive impact I have on the built environment.”
