Built to Last

Founder Miller Gorrie in 1989

Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, our company is the successor to the Thos. C. Brasfield company, a general contractor that operated as a sole proprietor beginning in 1921. Miller Gorrie purchased the company’s construction assets in 1964 and changed the name to Brasfield & Gorrie in 1967.

The new company initially continued in the niche of small commercial and remodeling projects. As profitability increased, the company shifted its emphasis to larger commercial, institutional, healthcare, water/wastewater, and industrial projects. In 1984, Brasfield & Gorrie began expanding by opening additional full-service offices in Atlanta, Georgia, and Orlando, Florida. Since that time, the company has continued to grow and now serves clients from 13 offices in eight states.

Brasfield & Gorrie’s success is the result of a strong work ethic and industry knowledge combined with innovation and collaboration. In the first year after Miller Gorrie purchased the assets of the Thos. C. Brasfield company, our annual revenue was less than $1 million. Today, our annual revenue is $5 billion, and we are a nationally respected general contractor with more than 3,500 employees and an average project value of $29 million.
