Beakerhead is an annual program in Calgary that brings together arts, sciences and engineering to create works of art that are displayed around the city each September. In 2016, we had an opportunity to volunteer to help with one of the amazing installations, known as “Message in a Bottle.”
Karen Ryan and Lara Murphy were honoured alongside other business women at BMO’s annual Celebrate Women event in Calgary Tuesday evening. The Expansion and Growth in Small Business Award for 2017 recognized Ryan Murphy Construction Inc. as a leader among Calgary’s construction and project management firms.
The Ryan Murphy story continues to pepper headlines of publications nationally and locally—the latest being one of the featured hot businesses in Alberta Venture’s January 2017 edition of “Who’s Hot 50 Now?”
In construction, sometimes the boss has to pick up the drill.
That’s the philosophy of Lara Murphy, co-owner of Ryan Murphy Construction Inc., one of Calgary’s busiest general contracting firms.
“On a job site, things very rarely go to plan, and it’s how you react to those hiccups or curveballs,” says Ms. Murphy. “Are you willing to take responsibility and fix the problem, rather than run away or try to point fingers?”
Resilience might not be exciting, but it’s what separates businesses that survive tough times from those that don’t. Just ask the owners of PROFIT 500 winner Ryan Murphy Construction, a Calgary company thriving amid a brutal local downturn.
When it comes to making it in the macho world of the trades, a few women are thinking pink and profitable.
According to JudyLynn Archer, president of Women Building Futures, an Alberta-based organization that recruits women into the trades, women represent four to six per cent of workers in the industry, and “that’s very generous.”
We are excited to announce that Ryan Murphy Construction was selected as a finalist for 2016 Calgary Chamber Breakout Business Award.
Our whole team is honoured to be recognized for our efforts among so many other amazing Calgary businesses.
