Two Birmingham companies, AirMed International and Lifeguard Ambulance Service, have combined their offices in the Forum Building at the BJCC in downtown.

The consolidation brings the combined operations space to more than 26,000 square feet on the seventh and eighth floors at the building located at 950 22nd St. N. There are more than 130 employees in the space.

The companies are now the largest tenant in the building, and are working in a recently renovated space that includes private offices, more than 90 workstations, conference rooms and break room facilities for the staffs. Total project costs exceeded $1 million and were completed by Meadows Homes Inc.

The transaction was brokered by Jack Brown of Graham & Co.

The deal will help build the critical mass of employees working in the Uptown district, which includes an entertainment district with several restaurants and is the target location for a future Topgolf complex.

AirMed has been in the building since 2014, while Lifeguard previously had operations in Homewood. Lifeguard recently relocated several executive positions to Birmingham.

“We are excited to co-locate our services in Uptown Birmingham, recognizing the opportunity for continued growth and expansion in the Forum Building,” said AirMed International President Denise M. Treadwell and Lifeguard Ambulance President Brett Jovanovich, in a joint statement.

Company leaders said the deal will make the company more efficient and maximize space.

AirMed provides international medical air transport services and has completed missions in more than 150 countries. Lifeguard Ambulance Service transports patients via ground ambulances in seven states and plans to keep expanding.

Dallas-based Air Medical Group Holdings Inc. acquired both companies in 2014
