Structural and civil engineers Walsh Associates make complex structures simple and conventional structures efficient. Clear ideas, translated into easily built solutions, are realised using the best analysis tools available.
The company's expertise leads to commissions on technically challenging projects, and where conventional solutions need to be challenged. Our projects cover commercial, residential, mixed use, schools and bespoke projects.
Walsh has proven strengths in building on complex sites, high rise structures, deep basements and refurbishment of historic and modern buildings.
From the time you join, you will be involved in projects and encouraged to take responsibility, giving you an all-round understanding of design and construction. You will be given the most up-to-date software available, and work under the guidance of senior engineers to enable you to develop.
Training and development are key to Walsh's success, delivered through in-house IStructE and ICE training schemes, as well as regular continuous professional development seminars. The aim is to continually develop new skills as a practice, to offer clients the best solutions and give staff a real interest in what they do.

GRADUATE PROFILE GARRETH JOYCE
Garreth Joyce studied for his MEng in civil engineering at UMIST, Manchester. After graduating in 2005, he spent the summer travelling, before returning to the UK. "I applied to a few firms and had some interviews, but the London office of Walsh seemed to be the best place for me," says Joyce.
"I have been involved with some very exciting projects. I am keen to build my career as an expert in structural engineering, and the opportunities available at Walsh were too good to be missed."
On joining, Joyce found himself in at the beginning of a major development designing two towers, one with 25 floors and the other with 15, for London's Canary Wharf. "This has been a brilliant project to be involved in from the start," says Joyce. "I've been involved at every stage, from designing the groundworks and the substructure through to looking at the post-tensioned floors, as well as involvement in the day-to-day running of the project. I've been expected to take on a degree of responsibility, but I like that. I have been thrown in at the deep end, but I get a lot of guidance."
"Walsh is very keen on training," says Joyce. "As well as the professional training, we need additional tutorials to help us span the gap between university and what we are expected to know to do the job."
Tony Ruck studied for his MEng in civil engineering with management at Birmingham University, graduating in 2004. He joined a large consulting engineer, and soon found himself immersed in bridge assessments. "I quickly realised that the work was not taxing me," says Ruck. "After a year, I left and joined Walsh. I'm really happy now, I'm working as a structural engineer on big projects with concrete frames, and that's what I'm interested in. I like being really involved in the structural design of buildings. Walsh has met my expectations head on - they have given me a good variety of work."
At the moment, Tony's two main projects are giving him some interesting challenges. An accommodation block in Shadwell is introducing him to modular construction. "It's good to be getting the exposure to a different construction process," says Tony. "At the same time, I am working on a mixed-use development in Ipswich that has post-tensioned concrete floor slabs, so that is another challenge again."
"I like being able to follow a project through," says Tony, to go out onsite and see it being built. "Walsh is good at giving you a lot of responsibility early, and that is good, it makes you feel really involved. This is a good company to work for, there are a lot of people of a similar age here, and it creates a good atmosphere."
