Mamaroneck Self Storage in Mamaroneck, N.Y., is the recipient of the 2016 Home Building Industry Award (HOBI) for Best Green Commercial Project by The Home Builders & Remodelers Association (HBRA) of Central Connecticut, a nonprofit association comprising 400 companies in the home-building industry. The HOBI Awards recognize excellence in design, construction, sales and marketing, and financing by members of the organization.
Mamaroneck Self Storage comprises 40,000 square feet of storage and was designed by local architect Kim Martelli. It was built according to the New York State Energy Research Development Agency’s new-construction program’s energy-efficiency guidelines under the direction of energy-consulting firm Steven Winter Associates. The energy upgrades incorporated into the construction have made the building 52 percent more energy-efficient than required by the building code, according to a company press release. This has resulted in more than $30,000 in annual electric-cost savings.
"Award-winning projects are always the result of teamwork,” said Chris Murphy, president of Murphy Brothers Contracting, the developer and owner of Mamaroneck Self-Storage. "We are grateful to our entire team for what they contributed to building a very successful building and business as reflected by this award."
Murphy Brothers was also awarded Best Exterior Home Feature, Outstanding Library and Best (commercial) Adaptive Reuse.
Founded in 1979 and headquartered in Mamaroneck, Murphy Brothers constructs and renovates custom homes and builds commercial projects in the Westchester Hudson Valley region and Fairfield County. It also owns Murphy Brothers Millworks.
