For more than a century, Walsh Brothers has made a conscious effort to be an outstanding corporate citizen in the communities in which we build. Our commitment to building better communities is evidenced through our long tradition of partnering with those institutions for whom we work, community leaders and socially conscious organizations in the areas where we work.

Walsh Brothers is proud to be the first Boston area construction manager taking a leadership role in promoting emissions reduction through the Greater Boston Breathes Better program. By implementing no-idling policies and pollutant reduction measures, and by encouraging use of electric-powered equipment on all of our sites, Walsh Brothers is significantly minimizing construction impact in the neighborhoods where we are working. Our efforts are especially beneficial on many of our firm’s urban projects, where surrounding populations may have existing conditions such as heart disease, asthma or other respiratory problems that are most sensitive to the health effects of fine particles found in diesel exhaust. As a family-run, locally-based firm, we will continually seek ways to positively impact the community through initiatives such as these. The EPA has recognized Walsh Brothers’ leadership in this area.

Many Walsh Brothers employees are also making significant contributions to the community, either by working together, or individually. We commend them for selflessly volunteering their time and energy to the causes they hold dear.
