R.W. Murray Co. proudly announces 30-Year Anniversary
R.W. Murray Co. is celebrating 30 Years of doing business in the D.C. Metropolitan area.

R.W. Murray Co. actually dates back to 1959, when the original office opened in St. Louis, Missouri. After that point, regional offices were established throughout the U.S. and in 1987 our office in Northern Virginia was opened with the purpose of serving the Greater Washington Metro Area.  A short time after that, we became independently owned and operated. We have worked hard to provide dedicated and value-driven construction services to clients ever since we first laid roots in Northern Virginia.

Can You Survive an In-Place Office Renovation?

Can You Survive an In-Place Office Renovation?
As a commercial general contractor, we perform in-place office renovations for clients all the time; it’s one of our areas of expertise. But there’s one in-place renovation we’ve never done before …    our own.   

We recently renewed the lease at our location on Balls Ford Road which included the negotiation of a tenant improvement allowance. We hired local architecture firm OTJ Architects to help us redesign our space by adding several modern upgrades. The fresh design included new carpet and vibrant paint throughout the entire office, as well as the redesign of our employee lounge/kitchen area, lobby and various other open spaces.
