Office Buildings

Privately Owned Office Buildings

Over the years, Springfield has transitionally evolved into a service-oriented community, creating a need for significant office spaces. From our involvement in the initial construction of most of these buildings, including Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning, and Fire Sprinklers, we have continued to maintain and repair these facilities as time goes on and system usage increases.

Publicly Owned Office & Misc.

As the center of State and County government, as well as city government, there has always been a need to house their respective operations in Springfield. F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has participated in the original construction of many of these kinds of facilities not only in Springfield but also throughout Illinois, and we continue to perform scheduled maintenance and repair work involving the Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Fire Sprinkler systems for many of these properties.


Most warehouses typically contain and store valuable contents critical to the business operations of their owners. From foodstuffs to refrigerated products, to dry goods, to chemicals, to paper goods, to manufactured and fabricated products, each has its individual storage requirements. Plumbing, Heating, and Refrigeration are often necessary for at least parts of the warehouse to function… and Fire Sprinklers are almost always necessary to protect such stored items. F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has been awarded this kind of work for all sectors of the commercial, governmental, and manufacturing markets, both in the greater Springfield area and throughout most of Illinois and neighboring states.
