The Patrick D. Murphy Company Inc. Architects has a terrific future in front of them. It is blue skies for many reasons.
The primary reason for an optimistic projection is because of our stellar staff that has been assembled over many years of successful practice.
I still have a great deal of passion to continue to serve our customers and resolve their needs. The Patrick D. Murphy Company Inc. Architects has grown from its initial beginning of roof consulting to diagnosing moisture infiltration issues from walls, doors and windows. We offer complete building envelope now because of our customers’ needs over the past years.
We have grown to be very unique in the area of roof and envelope consulting. Consider that in the past 25 years our staff members have provided leadership to the Kentucky Roofing Contractors Association serving as president in six of those years. In other words, our staff has led the association in the last quarter century 25% of the time and our customer base receives all of this leadership benefit on a daily basis.
But wait… There’s more!
Jean-Paul Grivas, AIA and Green Roof Professional (GRP) just rotated off the board of the National Roofing Contractor Association in 2013, where he served on the Manual Update Committee. This committee reviews all of the details of construction for all of the various types of roofs, both flat and sloped. These manuals are utilized in every architect and engineering office in the world for current and correct practice.
Upon rotating off the NRCA board, Jean-Paul was named the head of the committee. He has been asked to chair the committee for the second year as well.
Then there is Monica Murphy, MBA and Registered Roof Observer (RRO). Monica brings a great deal of youth and enthusiasm to the organization.
For fun Monica competes in triathlons. She has won the opportunity to compete in the internationally recognized Ironman in Kona, Hawaii twice. Monica also represented the United States and France on the team USA triathlon group. She is also a level two licensed triathlon coach.
Obviously Monica keeps all of us in great shape. Plus she brings our team the organizational skills internally at the office with her MBA background. We are now offering many of our services to customers online.
Monica joined the National and Regional chapter of the Roof Consultants Institute (RCI). She studied for and took the exam at the Roof Consultants Institute International Convention for her RRO designation. The RRO is a prestigious award for a Registered Roof Observer. The Patrick D. Murphy Co. Inc. is currently the only architectural company and the Commonwealth of Kentucky to have a RRO in-house.
Patrick D. Murphy, AIA and Green Roof Professional (GRP) is a three time past president of the Kentucky Roofing Contractors Association. Plus, as of this writing, I am current president of the Kentucky Region Roof Consultants Institute.
Our staff has grown to the point that we have collectively assembled over 200 years of roof related experience in one office. Everyone has had hands on training, experience and has worked on roof systems in the field, plus stayed at the cutting edge of new technologies (updated roof systems, details of construction, photovoltaic arrays and vegetative roof systems).
We have provided AIA Continuing Education seminars to many diverse groups of facility owners over a range of topics from roof consulting to roof management programs, envelope design and vegetative roofing.
The Patrick D. Murphy Inc. Co. Architects is unique in the industry. Our hand on experience, leadership and education set us light-years apart from any other.
We are excited to experience the future. It will entail new modern technologies related to time proven good practices. The future is bright because of our team. The team is progressively learning to embrace new energy concepts and sustainable practices with good and practical cost effective long-term solutions and common sense.
Give us a call sometime. We will be more than happy to share our enthusiasm with you and your staff.
