We are specialists in delivering pipelines; design; marine; structural steel; tunnelling; fabrication; bridges and piling; and invest heavily in our substantial holding of plant; equipment and facilities.

Murphy employs more than 3,500 engineers, professional managers and skilled operatives around the world. Together, we work as ‘One Murphy’ by directly delivering the people, plant and expertise needed to make projects a success.

There’s more to Murphy.

What do we do?

As an infrastructure specialist, Murphy is able to respond to the challenges of any project while making sure we provide our clients with a consistently high quality service.

Our self-delivery model gives our clients the assurance that we can provide a safe, reliable and cost-effective service. We make significant investments in our plant and our people, so that we can offer a highly-skilled, experienced workforce who use modern and well-maintained equipment. This means we effectively offer a ‘one stop shop’ service for clients on their most complex of projects and can be on site and ready to work at the drop of a hat.

We are able to offer a speedy and valued response to our clients’ emergencies and are the contractor of choice for many when unforeseen problems arise.

We actively encourage our employees to share their ideas wherever they can, whether they work on site or in an office. These ideas have been put into good use on our projects, helping us to make Murphy's services safer and more efficient.

Our ability to deliver projects in this way helps us build and maintain strong relationships with our clients. We work hard to develop excellent personal relationships, listening to and understanding our clients’ requirements. They and their customers are, after all, at the heart of everything we do.
