Public Buildings

Walsh have a strong and proven track record in the public sector and some of our most celebrated and award winning work has been on Public Buildings. The best example is our Birmingham library project and we have proven experience in hospitals, health centres, community facilities, car parks and civic spaces.
In the medical sector we are able to provide designs which meet the robust requirements for sensitive equipment whilst still providing lean designs. Such designs are realised using the latest technology and by employing and training engineers who are not only capable of understanding these highly complex analyses but are able to translate them into buildable and practical designs.
We understand that design quality is extremely important on public buildings. We work with both the client and the Architect to understand the design such that we can provide a well engineered solution which complement the design and add value.
Our expertise in public works also makes use of our external works capabilities. Walsh have worked on numerous outstanding public spaces, such as the renovation of the Old Spitalfields Market, the village centre at Southwater and the civic square at Hayes.
We recognise that there is a strong focus on sustainability on public works. Walsh have a good working understanding of both BREEAM and CEEQUAL assessment methods and are able to assist in carbon reduction techniques.
