Murphy, AIA, is the embodiment of a civil servant and citizen\narchitect.

"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"Murphy served in the military for nearly a decade, voluntarily going to\nAfghanistan to work on critical projects such as a redesign of Police\nDepartment #1 in downtown Kabul, the only woman-led police department in the\ncountry. After many other government agencies had failed to provide a feasible\nmaster plan for the department, Murphy led a quick reaction team that designed\ninfrastructure upgrades that improved clean water delivery, drastically\nimproved sanitary conditions, and addressed dangerous electrical hazards.\nMurphy\u2019s work was completed in an active war zone, requiring a quick and\nefficient response. A few years later, Murphy provided critical assistance to\nNorth Carolina, Florida, and Puerto Rico, which were all ravaged by Hurricane\nMaria.

He has embraced new facets of architecture that\ninclude drones, LiDAR imaging, and scan-to-BIM technology. He and his team\nworked closely with Savannah Technical College\u2019s Culinary Institute,\nincorporating the firm\u2019s technology into the school\u2019s quest for a new\ninstructional space in a former downtown nightclub.

He is also a 2020 graduate of AIA Georgia\u2019s Christopher\nKelley Leadership Program and will complete a term on the organization\u2019s executive\ncommittee later this year. As its 2022 chair, his commitment to broadening the\nprogram\u2019s diversity and inclusion, and expanding it to include AIA Alabama\u2019s\nnominees, yielded the most diverse class in the program\u2019s history.
