Our Services

The Walsh Group offers seamlessly integrated services to plan, finance, build, operate and maintain the full life-cycle of a project. Each of our projects demand unique, client-focused solutions, built on the solid knowledge-base we’ve developed from our diverse portfolio. The result is a broad range of multi-faceted services – executed via a proven, highly disciplined process.

Preconstruction

The Walsh Springboard Preconstruction System is a collaborative, robust and resource-rich program that facilitates effective communication between project stakeholders to launch informed, timely decisions. This process ensures an effective and efficient use of energy and effort that culminates in meeting project goals and client expectations.

The traditional approach to preconstruction typically limits client services to an estimate, a schedule and logistics plan. Our approach extends these into a system of tools that defines a more holistic and predictable preconstruction process that achieves better results and generates greater value. In addition to developing estimating, scheduling and logistics plans, our system involves:

Operations & Maintenance

For many years, Walsh has performed operations and maintenance services for roadways during largescale reconstruction programs; facilities as required by design, build, operate, maintain (DBOM) contracts; and direct performance of operations and maintenance for the term of P3 projects.

As the North American P3 market continues to expand and mature, the long-term Operations and Maintenance component has become increasingly critical to the successful delivery of P3 projects. Walsh has established and implemented comprehensive O&M systems, processes and innovative ideas; using our understanding of managing life-cycle analysis and its critical role in meeting long-term project goals.

We recognize that the skills, systems and processes required to effectively maintain assets over their life-cycle are critical to providing effective maintenance services.

Lean Construction

Walsh has adopted the Lean philosophy in pursuit of continuous quality improvement, including the elimination of waste and any non-value-added elements throughout the design and construction process. Lean project delivery is a culture. It is a way of thinking that requires focusing on quality improvement through increased efficiency and productivity. Success ultimately resides in the people and the values of the organization.

  • INTEGRATION:

    Owner, designer, contractor and subcontractors collaborate on the design and construction process from start through completion.

  • SCHEDULE MATERIALS:

    We schedule material deliveries at the last responsible moment directly to the installation point to avoid double handling.

  • TARGET COSTING:

    We establish final project cost between all parties. We find an equivalent value-added solution if additional costs/conditions arise.

  • PULL PLANNING:

    All construction members collaborate on project schedule to reduce cycle times and increase productivity. We “pull” tasks through the schedule by determining what each contractor needs completed before they can begin.

  • SET-BASED DESIGN:

    We develop multiple concept designs based on the client’s guiding principles. Cross-discipline review teams analyze concepts against those principles and select the best design to utilize.

  • CO-LOCATION:

    We locate the owner, design team and contractor onsite to provide instantaneous solutions and work towards a common goal.

Sustainability

Walsh is highly experienced in utilizing green design and construction practices to assist our customers in creating environmentally conscious facilities. Our innovative solutions support sustainability through socially responsible, economically viable best practices.

We have partnered on numerous projects built to achieve LEED certification. Our approach to sustainability has led Engineering-News Record to rank our company as the nation’s 13th largest green contractor. In recent years, Walsh has completed multiple LEED-certified projects and is working on numerous projects to be registered with the U.S. Green Building Council.

Our commitment to sustainability is evident in the completion of our firm’s new LEED Platinum corporate headquarters expansion, an existing warehouse repurposed into a four-story, 93,000 SF office building. As a LEED Platinum facility, many of the finishes contained in the building utilize sustainable, recycled, non-toxic and low-emitting materials, as well as partially localized environmental control.

With more than 250 LEED Accredited Professionals on staff, Walsh is able to dedicate a sustainability expert to serve as a liaison who works closely with each customer.

Self-Performance

Walsh has a vast supply of corporate resources, including an equipment fleet valued at $500 million and a staff of more than 8,000 professional personnel. Through these resources, Walsh is capable of self-performing large portions of work, including demolition, excavation, trucking, carpentry, sewer work, water mains, site survey, site engineering, concrete, post tension, masonry, earthwork and steel erection.

When opportunity permits, Walsh prefers to utilize its own employees and equipment. Self-performed work has a direct and positive impact on the project schedule, quality and cost when considering the complexity of work, quality and availability of the subcontractor market, and the workload of our individual forces.

We store and maintain our equipment fleet in a 75,000sf state-of-the-art maintenance facility located on a 66-acre site with water access to the Chicago River. A tractor/lowboy trailer fleet is also dispatched from this location and capable of moving our equipment nationwide, from region to region, project to project.

Our fleet is a strategic, capital-intensive investment that better serves the schedule demands of our owners, and maximizes the most value-added, cost-effective equipment solutions.

Building Information Modeling

With Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC), Walsh is leading the industry away from traditional 2D construction drawings and replacing them with 3D virtual models.

Walsh has embraced BIM on nearly all of its complex projects over the last 10 years. BIM increases efficiencies, reduces late changes during the course of construction, minimizes rework that results in additional cost or extensions to the construction schedule, and improves operational efficiencies throughout the life of the building.

Our BIM department has grown into an experienced staff across all parts of operations: business development, preconstruction, estimating, project management and field layout. In fact, our staff helped to write the industry’s first contractual BIM Addendum for contractors working with designers in a BIM environment (ConsensusDocs 301 Building Information Modeling Addendum). We were one of three builders who provided in-depth expertise in drafting the Army Corps BIM requirements for facility management BIM deliverables for all Center of Standardization buildings.

Working with in-house BIM experts, design teams and subcontractors, Walsh developed one of the industry’s most comprehensive BIM models on the $1.3 billion LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal.
