Leigh Murphy, the firm's director and licence nominee, has owned the Murphy Group and the construction firm on the Sunshine Coast since 1975.

Over the years, Murphy Builders has grown through two corporate restructurings, with the construction company transforming from LA & DP Murphy Builders Pty Ltd to Murphy Builders Pty Ltd and in 2008 to Murphy Builders Qld Pty Ltd. The company now trades as Murphy Builders Qld Pty Ltd t/as Murphy Homes, picking up both commercial and residential divisions.

Early on in the evolution of Murphy Builders, Leigh focused on the residential sector, and in the early 90's he branched off into commercial construction. In 2012, we reintroduced our residential brand Murphy Homes, which now runs concurrently with our strong commercial arm, Murphy Builders. Leigh and the team have been developing sites since the company's inception, and our Project Management department is now a standalone division spanning both the commercial and residential sectors.

The directorship, general management and the high level of workmanship has rarely altered and never faltered through our rich 40 year history. Leigh Murphy has established goodwill and a respected and reputable name within the industry, and has a strong group of experienced co-owners who actively drive the company's growth and have worked together as a team for over a decade.

The professionalism of Murphy Builders, and our level of finish, are highly regarded throughout Queensland, NSW and the Northern Territory, with construction requests coming from as far afield as Mt Isa, Newcastle and Kakadu. In all instances the firm's management and project teams, "practice what they preach". We have a family based ethos with a hands-on and "get it right the first time" approach. 

As well-established professionals, Leigh Murphy and our team have instilled pride and perseverance in all employees, and the firm represents the vision that any builder can build a building, but good builders stand by their work.
