Brothers Chris and Sean Murphy, who own Mamaroneck Self Storage and Murphy Brothers Contracting Inc. in Mamaroneck, N.Y., have been chosen as the 2018 honoree of the local chamber of commerce and will be recognized for the distinction during a Jan. 12 dinner and dance at the Beach Point Club. Registration for the event, which begins at 6:30 p.m., is $100 per person.
The Murphys have been long-time members of the chamber, according to the source. “Chris and Sean Murphy, along with their entire team, are very supportive to our chamber and the local community, and we are fortunate to have Murphy Brothers Contracting in our village,” said Susan Fuller, chamber president.
The brothers launched their general-contracting firm in 1979. The company constructs and renovates custom homes and builds commercial projects in the Westchester Hudson Valley region and Fairfield County. It also owns Murphy Brothers Millworks.
Mamaroneck Self Storage opened in 2015 with numerous green initiatives, including DOW Powerhouse Solar Shingles, which are a combination of roof shingles and a solar-panel system. Designed by Kim Martelli, owner of KTM Architect, the 40,000-square-foot facility also includes heat-recovery ventilators, a high-efficiency variable refrigerant flow cooling and heating system, and energy-efficient windows.
Earlier this year, the Murphys received two awards for the development of their storage project, including the “Westchester County 2017 Earth Day Award” and The Best of BOMA [Building Owners and Managers Association] Westchester County's Signature Award in the "Reposition/Repurpose” category. They’re looking to expand the facility by incorporating a drop-off center, packing and mailing services, and a “white glove” packing and moving service related to the proposed Village of Mamaroneck MAKER Zone, which supports sustainability of the area’s manufacturing district.
“Mamaroneck will always be ‘home’ to us. It’s got everything, plus the nicest people in the county,” said Chris Murphy.
