Meet the Walsh team

Karen So

Karen joined Walsh from the Railway Sector in 2007 and since then has gained a wealth of experience working on projects in the residential, commercial, retail and infrastructure sectors. As well as managing projects, she is able to carry out design in steel, reinforced concrete, timber and load bearing masonry for both new builds and refurbishments. Karen is a proactive and enthusiastic team player, able to coordinate and develop structural design with clients and design consultants alike. Her particular design strength is in reinforced concrete frames, modular structures and basement designs. On site, she can run site inspections and assist with construction issues smoothly if they arise.

Karen is always able to offer a practical solution to any challenge, with a skilled eye for identifying engineering issues early on and resolving them swiftly. She has a fantastic track record in delivering projects on time and on budget, an achievement that both she and Walsh are proud of. Everyone who works with Karen applauds her effective communication skills, an attribute that leads to well coordinated projects both internally and externally all round.
