From campus-style settings to town and city centre schemes, whether these are new-build or repurposing, Walsh has the engineering expertise to deliver much needed science and research space.
On campus setting developments, we typically provide our integrated engineering approach (including structures, civils, geotechnical and highways) to deal with what is often a large, complex site. This means we have to work working alongside existing infrastructure and manage the ground conditions.
Inner city projects can be new-build or the repurposing of existing buildings. Walsh looks to use innovative, low-carbon solutions which are in keeping with use and style of the building and surrounding area.
Specific requirements for science and research buildings include low vibration floors and extra reinforcement to support specialist and heavy equipment as well as openings through floorplates and MEP penetrations for highly serviced areas.
