Meet the Walsh team

Peyrouz Modarres

Peyrouz has risen to become a much trusted and admired Director within Walsh. He brings both significant skill and experience to this role, as well as managing sustainability and marketing across the company. Peyrouz has a unique skillset encompassing both the old and new, with expertise in modern methods of construction as well as historic renovations. He also specialises in high-rise, complicated structures and deep basements. These skills were demonstrated when Peyrouz had the opportunity to take a 3 year sabbatical in New York working with Desimone Consulting Engineers. During this time he gained valuable insight working on the 64-storey 50west project – a sophisticated high-rise concrete frame building fresh on the New York skyline.

Peyrouz uses his flexible and proactive approach to keep team members focussed and enthusiastic about the projects they work on. His knowledgeable and friendly nature helps him make and maintain many professional relationships amongst peers and clients.

As well as being a leader in a top structural engineering firm in London Peyrouz is particularly proud of being part of the regeneration of the Camden area over the past 12-13 years, achieving results that will serve generations to come.

“I think success is based not only on achieving great results but also making and maintaining great relationships.”
