Scott Walker
“We prefer working with homeowners that want to expand and renovate their own personal home. We become problem solvers alongside them, and help them see new possibilities for the future.”

Scott M. Walker—President

“McMurray Inc was a gem to work with. Sure, there are larger groups, with larger crews, and often much larger workloads. McMurray’s attention to our job was first rate and personal, and their commitment to work with us during the whole process — despite our changing needs and interests— was really a breath of fresh air. To say their work was top-notch was a by-product of this personal care and craft.”

Evanston Resident and Client

“We work as team. It is our collaboration with clients, architects, and trusted subcontractors that really sets us apart. We ask questions. We challenge. We execute. We have found the best results from from all minds working together.”

Scott M. Walker—President

“McMurray Inc came to us with a promise. I, for one, did not believe that they could actually do and say what they said they were going to do based on past experience with contractors. I don’t like to say it, but I was proven wrong. They were committed to their promise, flexible in their process, and focused in their execution. It was one of the first times I was delighted to be dead wrong.”

Winnetka Resident and Client

“McMurray Inc represents a unique entity in a business riddled with complexity and often mistrust. They are a nimble, custom high-end builder who puts the client at the center of the solution. And the fact that their founder has a history in architecture gives them unique insight into the ever-changing evolution of the renovation and building process.”
