“Brasfield & Gorrie History

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

Initially, the new company continued within the Thos. C. Brasfield niche of small commercial and remodeling projects. As profitability increased, the company shifted its emphasis to larger commercial, institutional, healthcare, and industrial projects, and in 1984, Brasfield & Gorrie opened full-service offices in Atlanta and Orlando. Today, we serve clients from offices in Atlanta and Columbus, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama; Dallas, Texas; Jacksonville and Orlando, Florida; Nashville, Tennessee; and Raleigh, North Carolina.

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 more than $2 billion, and we are a nationally respected general contractor and the builder of the world’s largest aquarium, the Georgia Aquarium, which is a model of project efficiency, superior quality, and exceptional service from start to finish.”
