Jeff Murray

Global Practice Director

Our architectural practice is committed to imaginative, sustainable, high-performance architecture. 

Through these principles we have developed a portfolio of design excellence and technical quality in buildings and spaces that inspire human innovation and enhance performance.

With start–to–finish coordination of architecture, engineering, and construction management, we provide integrated solutions for demanding projects worldwide.​

​We aim to solve project challenges from the whole-building perspective. 

By focusing on the synergy between architecture, engineering, and planning, our design process is uniquely suited to meet the demands of highly technical buildings and facilities.

With architects and engineers working side-by-side in interdisciplinary teams, we address the interface between people and technology, to deliver innovative, high-performance environments.

Clients & Projects

Design

Our integration of advance planning, strategic business planning, architectural and engineering design and construction management gives our clients the added value and confidence of having the full range of project services delivered from a single, unified, reliable source. 

Global Headquarters, Industrial Scientific Corporation, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

Global Headquarters, Industrial Scientific Corporation, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

This 200,000-square-foot, vertically integrated corporate headquarters houses a wide range of research and testing labs, manufacturing space, offices for research, design, engineering and administrative functions and extensive employee amenity spaces. The high-performance design is intended to serve the client for 100 years. As a business tool, the CEO claimed it helped cut new product time-to-market in half through the social logic of its design and the enhanced quality of the workspaces.

CH2M’s design of a new 330,000-square-foot research facility for advanced semiconductor and nanotechnology research and development is the first in the world to house extreme ultra-violet equipment and was finished in less than 20 months from the start of programming to first tenant occupancy. The award-winning design became the new flagship of SUNY Polytechnic, took advantage of a constrained site and overcame ambient site vibration challenges through innovative structural design.

Mountbatten Nanotechnology Electronics Research Complex, University of Southampton, United Kingdom

Designed by CH2M to be a world-leading nanotechnology research facility housing multiple research, teaching and administration accommodations, this 130,000-square-foot facility is organized to fit on a constrained site and provide a new beacon marking entry to the campus. The vertical organization of the facility provides enhanced safety, efficiency and functionality, and features extensive transparency to ‘put science on display’.

Science Research and Teaching Center (Science Building 2), Portland State University, Portland, Oregon, United States

End-of-life building systems and seismic concerns challenged the future of this 1969, 250,000-square-foot science, teaching and R&D “workhorse” building. New systems and a cost-effective seismic reinforcing design provided this LEED Silver certified building another 50 years of service to students and researchers alike.

Home of the Nebraska Center for Virology, CH2M supported the University and multidisciplinary R&D faculty from project inception, helping to secure the initial NIH grant funding, through the phased multi-year lab planning, design and construction of this 100,000-square-foot BSL-2 and BSL-3 laboratory facility.

Biopharmaceutical Production Facility, Bothell, Washington, United States

Biopharmaceutical Production Facility, Bothell, Washington, United States

Situated within a conventional office park, this nearly 100,000-square-foot cancer drug pilot and manufacturing facility had to be both attractive and cost-effective. CH2M’s interdisciplinary design and engineering approach facilitated the construction and immediate operationality in the context of a dynamic market.

Global Headquarters, MEDRAD, Warrendale, Pennsylvania, United States

Global Headquarters, MEDRAD, Warrendale, Pennsylvania, United States

This CH2M-designed 125,000-square-foot corporate headquarters incorporates sustainable design principles, such as an under-floor system for air distribution and maximized daylight and views, to achieve LEED Gold certification. Its design was driven by the client’s desire to enhance collaboration and social interaction as well as flexibility.
