Design-Build at Murphy

Design-build provides a single point of accountability in new and retrofit construction and encourages a true team atmosphere between us and our customer.

With simplified lines of communication, the result is an accelerated project delivery with value-driven cost savings and improved quality.

Murphy Company offers one of the largest and most diverse design-build engineering groups among mechanical contractors. All designs are completed by our in-house staff of more than 50 design professionals, including professionally licensed engineers and LEED accredited professionals. Murphy Company’s design-build team can handle any size and type of project, ranging from hospitals and labs to manufacturing, hospitality and tenant finish. Our areas of specialty are HVAC, plumbing, process piping and temperature controls design.

Our design-build approach reduces our customer’s risk by hiring us to take sole responsibility for design and construction. By developing an initial scope and budget to meet the owner’s requirements, Murphy Company eliminates unknown variables that can quickly derail the project. We employ the latest CAD design techniques, including virtual design and true coordination (VD and BIM).  Leading the coordination with other support systems, such as electrical and fire protection, sets us apart from other commercial mechanical design-build firms by reducing field construction conflicts.  This also allows us the confidence to pre-fabricate much of the pipe and duct systems in our quality controlled shops to minimize the on-site labor, thus reducing costs.
