About Us

Founded in 1997, Murphy Burr Curry, Inc. (MBC) brings 25 years of hands-on business experience and a practical approach to the complex world of structural engineering design. Our goal is to create innovative, imaginative, appropriate, and cost-effective structural design solutions that meet – and exceed! – client expectations.

Based in San Francisco, MBC provides a full range of structural engineering consultation for commercial, private, and public developments. Our highly experienced team engages with property owners, architects, and contractors to deliver unique structural engineering solutions for both the design and construction of new buildings and the rehabilitation of existing ones. We also provide consulting services that include due-diligence and the evaluation of existing structures. The intrinsic value of our client-first approach and commitment to each project is continually reflected in the fact that most of our workload is still based on referrals and repeat business.

Over the years, our firm has specialized in historic renovation, seismic retrofit, and new building design and continues to be recognized as a leader in the evaluation of buildings damaged due to natural disasters (such as major earthquakes, fires, and storms) as well as for providing seismic upgrades to existing structures. Current and past projects encompass the creation or expansion of retail and commercial spaces, residential structures, medical facilities and academic institutions, and (largely due to our location here in San Francisco) the renovation of many historic buildings of all types and sizes. We are proud to have completed over 1,000 successful projects in locations throughout the United States.
