Alabama Commerce Secretary Ellen McNair announced this week that Brasfield & Gorrie, one of the nation’s largest privately held construction firms, plans to invest $18.9 million to expand its national headquarters in Birmingham, choosing to grow in its hometown over other major markets where it operates.

Brasfield & Gorrie’s expansion project will support the creation of 85 jobs as it adds a 28,500-square-foot, three-story building on its campus at 3021 Seventh Avenue South in the city’s Lakeview District, according to the Alabama Department of Commerce.

“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,” he added.
