Institutional Services

From daycare centers to universities, F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has been at the forefront of providing Plumbing, HVAC, and Fire Sprinklers to places of education. In terms of sheer numbers, we have probably done more new school construction jobs compared to any other type. We are always ready to go on any kind of work necessary for the school systems to function.


From Pittsfield in the west to Charleston in the east, from Streator in the north to Marion in the south, there are very few locations in Illinois where F. J. Murphy has not been involved in hospital construction. We have literally installed miles of medical gas piping, thousands of bathrooms and specialty fixtures and equipment, and enough Fire Sprinkler pipe to go from New York to Chicago and halfway back! We offer absolute expertise when it comes to hospital work. After all, there can be no margin for error on such projects.

Religious Places of Worship

Repair Service, maintenance, remodeling, and new construction for places of worship carry special significance when we take on such work. We somehow feel that beyond being just physical structures, these are buildings that are worthy of respect in everything we do, and our employees don’t have to be reminded to act accordingly. We have installed Plumbing for water supplies to baptismal fonts, installed Fire Sprinklers in choir lofts, and taken care of attendees’ comfort with proper heating and cooling.

Clinical & Penal

Facilities to house individuals who, for various reasons, cannot be allowed on the streets alone is another market F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. has a wealth of experience with, both during the construction phase and servicing later while occupied. Following a spectrum from institutional residences for the infirm, to rehabilitation centers for addicts, to maximum-security prisons, this specialized work requires special attention to detail just as much as hospital work. We provide our services for all such projects throughout the state of Illinois.
