Brasfield & Gorrie Expands Birmingham, Alabama, Headquarters Operations

Brasfield & Gorrie, a privately held construction firm, plans to expand its national headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama. The $18.9 million project is expected to create 85 jobs.

The investment will include a 28,500-square-foot, three-story building on the company’s campus in the Lakeview District. Construction is scheduled for completion in Summer 2025.

“Birmingham has been our home since day one, and we feel strongly about investing in the community, which has supported us throughout the years,” CEO Jim Gorrie said. “The city, county and state’s support have been key to our steady growth. As we continue to grow and hire across our footprint, it’s important that we invest in our people and the place we call home.”

Brasfield & Gorrie provides general contracting, design-build, and construction management services for a wide variety of markets, including healthcare, commercial, science and technology, institutional, federal, municipal, industrial, mission critical/data centers, infrastructure, and water/wastewater treatment. The company has offices in Birmingham, Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, Charlotte, Nashville and Orlando.

“Brasfield & Gorrie is a landmark business that has done much to reshape Birmingham through its high-profile projects over the years,” noted Ellen McNair, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “It’s great to see this powerhouse company continue to deepen its roots in the city rather than selecting a larger market.”

Headquarters have a multiplier effect on our local economy and signal a thriving business environment to key stakeholders, such as business leaders, site selectors and prospective talent,” Birmingham Business Alliance President and CEO Steve Ammons added. “Brasfield & Gorrie continued growth is exciting news for the Greater Birmingham Region, and our team is proud to once again support an expansion of their home base operations.”
