The Walsh Brothers Difference, Since 1901
For 114 years, Boston-based construction management specialist Walsh Brothers has helped to push the industry forward with a company-wide commitment to innovation and tackling the toughest, most challenging jobs. As one of the most distinguished companies of its kind in the country today, Walsh Brothers brings a flexible, ever-evolving set of skills to bear on the most complex and sensitive of projects, consistently delivering results that exceed clients’ hopes and expectations. A family-owned and led company for more than a century, Walsh Brothers also stresses the importance of cultivating enduring relationships and ensuring that every partner benefits from the superior craftsmanship and service that have characterized the organization since the beginning.
The Walsh Brothers Approach
Partnering regularly with educational, medical, cultural, and other institutions where construction work must not be allowed to disrupt ongoing operations, Walsh Brothers has forged a strong reputation for innovation, sensitivity, and flexibility, key traits that allow the company to succeed with the most delicate and demanding of jobs:
Massachusetts State House Time Capsule Removal
When work on the Massachusetts State House revealed a time capsule that had been hidden away in one of the building’s cornerstones for more than a hundred years, Walsh Brothers was called upon to oversee the difficult task of safely removing it. The company’s long history of successfully completing such delicate projects made it the unanimous choice of the Simpson Gumpertz & Heger design team members leading the renovation.
Careful, surgical work overseen by Walsh Brothers led to the removal of four surrounding granite blocks, each weighing around 800 pounds, as well as the installation of steel shoring to support the State House in their absence. The cornerstone itself was then removed on December 11, 2014, after which the time capsule, which had been originally placed in 1795 (before being added to in 1855), was safely removed.
Finally, on January 7, the 10-pound time capsule was opened in a ceremony at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, revealing a trove of coins dating back as far as 1652, a silver plaque that is thought to have been engraved by Paul Revere, and a collection of documents and newspapers from the Colonial period. The careful work overseen by Walsh Brothers allowed this historical treasure to be recovered entirely without damage and is characteristic of the unique character that has made the company such a consistent leader in the industry for well over a century.
Restoring the Dome at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
One of the most recognizable landmarks in Cambridge and the Boston area in general, the Great Dome of MIT’s Barker Library reading room is a point of pride for the world-class research and educational institution. When leaks in that structure began threatening the prized engineering collections within, Walsh Brothers was called in to manage the repair work.
Since 1901, the professionals of Walsh Brothers have built and restored some of the most recognized landmarks in New England and beyond. We believe that our culture and the way we conduct our business day-to-day is distinguished by some very unique qualities of our firm:
