AGC MA Building Women in Construction Profiles Christy MurphyCategory: Company Updates
Christy's interest in construction was ignited through her life-long exposure to her fathers’ manufacturing business in Topsfield. She says contracts, scheduling, quality and budgets were all part of their daily life, working with him on weekends and vacations, so the transition made sense.
Christy began with an architectural engineering independent concentration from Boston University and went to work for R.F. Walsh while continuing to take additional BAC architecture courses at night. As an assistant project manager, she got the opportunity to work on a highly complex state agency project that encompassed a multi-phased interior fit-out and she was hooked. To be a part of a process that “physically changed the space” really excited her so she decided to drop her classes at BAC and pursue construction management. Without the traditional co-op experience she was now behind the eight ball. On the advice of mentor Tim Bonfatti (pictured above with Christy) and other trusted colleagues, she took all the courses she could at Northeastern, WIT and AGC YCPI to get fully immersed as quickly as possible.
