Our Tradition



Our company has many traditions; one of the most treasured was passed down by Matthew Myles Walsh II to his sons (Co-Chairmen Matt and Dan Walsh) - placing a Miraculous Medal in the first concrete pour of every new project.

As children, Matt and Dan would accompany their father to new job sites and place a Miraculous Medal in the wet concrete. The Medal was an inspiration for the workers to finish the job safely and to make it as miraculous as the Medal itself. As our company grows, sustaining traditions can be challenging, but our leadership team feels it is important to continue this tradition as a constant reminder of devotion to a project, a job site, a company, and a family.

Miraculous Medals have been recently placed at the following project sites:


U-District Station - Seattle, Washington


Fowler Wastewater Treatment Plant - Fowler, Georgia


The Sheridan at Park Ridge - Park Ridge, Illinois


650 E. Stonewall - Charlotte, North Carolina


1326 S. Michigan Avenue - Chicago, Illinois


University of Texas Medical Branch - Galveston, Texas


Luke 303 Water Reclamation Facility - Phoenix, Arizona


University of Notre Dame School of Architecture - Notre Dame, Indiana


Vassar Brothers Medical Center - Poughkeepsie, New York

History of the Medal
The medal of the Immaculate Conception, commonly called the Miraculous Medal, was given to Sister (now Saint) Catherine Laboure, a spiritual daughter of St. Louise de Marillac and St. Vincent de Paul. This took place in the chapel of the Motherhouse of the Daughters of Charity, 140 Rue du Bac, Paris, France.

In 1830, Mary appeared to Sister Catherine and requested of her: “Have a medal struck on this model, the persons who wear it with confidence will receive great graces.” The metal was made and freely circulated and in a short time was worn by millions. Innumerable wonders and miracles took place—health was restored, sickness banished, bad habits broken, special graces given, dangers averted, blessings bestowed—until the little medal became known by the name it bears today, the Miraculous Medal.
