    The Walsh Group is a family of companies united by a shared dedication to deliver exceptional service, standards and safety. Our Assistant Project Managers share and collect helpful resources and share information broadly across work teams. Are you always on the hunt for better ways of doing things? Do you soak up information so you can make better decisions? Walsh Assistant Project Managers are certainly confident enough to take necessary risks, but they always approach such risks carefully and cautiously.


    Are you someone who trusts your instincts and has confidence in your ability to grow as a leader? When you see potential in others, do you invest in it? The Walsh Group began as a small carpentry business and has grown over four generations of family ownership to be a multi-billion dollar contracting company.
