The 40,000-square-foot self-storage facility was designed by architect Kim Martelli and developed by the general contracting firm on its own property in the Village of Mamaroneck. A recent winner of a 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 New York State Building code. The results succeeded in averaging yearly operating cost savings of more than $30,000, while providing a NYSERDA rebate check totaling 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 Industrial Development Agency 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. Deputy County Executive Kevin Plunkett, on behalf of Westchester County Executive Robert Astorino, presented the award to Murphy Brothers Contracting.
