WBCM provided engineering services for the construction of a new eight-story, 98,000-square foot office and retail building located at the corner of Forbes Avenue and Coltart Avenue. The lowest parking level is accessible from Iroquois Way at the rear and is fully below grade at the Forbes Avenue side. The first floor is a CVS retail store, and the upper levels are office space with an 8th floor rooftop terrace.

Construction consists of concrete slab on metal deck supported by composite steel framing, steel columns, and deep concrete caisson foundations. The lateral system is comprised of steel braced frames that are highlighted in the curtainwall façade.

The Murdoch Office Building is certified LEED Silver by the USGBC.
