Atlanta, Ga. (Nov. 18, 2014) –Brasfield & Gorrie is marking a milestone in Atlanta, Georgia. Established in 1984, the company is observing 30 years in business.
In its three decades in Atlanta, Brasfield & Gorrie has completed landmark projects including the Georgia Aquarium; the massive 12th & Midtown mixed-use development; and the College Football Hall of Fame.

Brasfield & Gorrie has completed more than 1,400 projects in Georgia worth approximately $8.35 billion, including $6.4 billion in Metro Atlanta. The company’s success in the state led Brasfield & Gorrie to expand its presence in Georgia in 2012 by opening an office in Columbus.
“We are marking a longstanding history in Atlanta,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Regional President Rob Taylor. “In the last 30 years, we have grown from a three-man team to a team of nearly 550. We have been fortunate to have the opportunity to help shape Atlanta’s skyline, and we now have the privilege of being part of the team that will build SunTrust Park, the new Home of the Braves. We owe our success to the hard work, determination and dedication of our people and the tremendous support of our clients and community.”
