Due to the similar nature and close proximity of the Nexen Office Building and the Murphy Office Building, the design team already had a strong knowledge and background of the site and the potential obstacles the project could face. This familiarity allowed the team to quickly and easily navigate the design and permitting process which allowed project to meet its design/construction schedule of 14 months. Nexen Office Building has achieved LEED Silver Certification and the Murphy Office Building will also be seeking LEED Silver Certification.

Other improvements on the site include new parking garages to serve the increased parking needs of the office buildings and replacing a small shopping center on the east side of the development along Bunker Hill.

Civil responsibilities included site design, paving, drainage, stormwater quality, utility layout, LEED design, traffic impact analysis, utility capacity auditing, and detention research of exemption.
