Government contracts

In 2001, the B.C. Housing Authority awarded W.J. Murphy Contracting Ltd. the contract to build a low-cost rental housing project for Nanaimo youth housing. The 21-unit wood frame apartment building is three storeys high and was valued at $2-million. The Housing Authority approached the company again for the Kakawis Family Development Centre in Port Alberni, B.C., which W.J. Murphy Contracting Ltd. completed in January, 2010. This centre includes family home units, a learning centre, toddler centre and a gym. The centre has since changed its name to Kackaamin, meaning butterfly. We were also chosen to convert the operating area of the Homalco Health Canada building into an urgent care clinic. The 4,000-square-foot area was completed in 2003 for the Vancouver Island Health Authority.

Commercial contracts

We also excel at completing commercial contracts and renovations, even when given a tight turnaround. In 2003, we were asked to build a two-storey concrete addition to the cafeteria Building 185 of the Vancouver Island University, all within three months and before the start of the 2003/2004 school year. The project, completed on time in September, 2003, also included a new entrance and classrooms. In 2007, we were hired by Cairsmore Lodge in Duncan, B.C., to build a 6,500-square-foot addition and renovation, for an extended care facility. The value of this project was $1.57-million.
