Murphy was awarded the contract for the design and construction of the £150m Brecon to Tirley gas pipeline in 2005. This was followed by Murphy winning the major contract for constructing the Olympic Park in 2006. Its scope was to construct the major cable tunnels and substations required to power the event.
