Murphy Brothers Honored with BOMA, Earth Day Recognition
Murphy Brothers Contracting was honored at the 26th Annual BOMA Hall of Honor Awards Dinner as the recipient of “The Best of BOMA Westchester County’s Signature Award” in the category of “Re-position/Re-purpose Award” for Mamaroneck Self Storage. The 40,000 self-storage facility was designed by architect Kim Martelli and developed by the general contracting firm on their own property in the Village of Mamaroneck. A recent winner of a HBRA-CT 2016 HOBI Award for “Best Green Commercial Project,” Murphy Brothers collaborated with nationally known energy consultants, Steven Winter Associates to construct their building under NYSERDA’s New Construction Program to rate better than 52% more energy efficient than required by the NYS building code. The results succeeded in averaging yearly operating cost savings of over $30,000 while providing a NYSERDA rebate check totally close to $60,000.
In a separate ceremony, the company also received a Westchester County 2017 Earth Day Award for the development of Mamaroneck Self Storage with energy-efficient features built into the facility design. The Westchester IDA had granted a sales tax relief incentive to the project while under construction, enabling the Murphy Brothers to wrap the savings into a more energy-efficient building strategy. The award was presented to Murphy Brothers Contracting by Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett on behalf of County Executive Rob Astorino.
Murphy Brothers Contracting is owned and operated by Greenwich residents, Chris and Sean Murphy. Celebrating their 39th year in the construction business, the company is known throughout Fairfield & Westchester Counties for building beautifully designed custom homes and picture-perfect whole home renovations as well as distinctive light commercial projects, and now, that list includes award-winning energy-efficient self-storage facilities.
