Birmingham is fortunate to be home to a high concentration of construction companies, architecture firms and engineering companies that are shaping the look of the nation – and in some cases, the world.
While many of those companies have built giant enterprises and high-growth firms by working on projects abroad and elsewhere in the nation, there is a large concentration of new projects right here in the Magic City.
New developments and massive renovations are in the pipeline, and more announcements are always on the horizon. The city was dotted with cranes and other construction elements throughout the pandemic, indicating the health of the Birmingham construction industry.
To recognize the transformative projects that are changing the face of the Magic City, the Birmingham Business Journal publishes its Building Birmingham Awards. The goal for starting the specal section in 2019 was to highlight not just the projects that are shaping our economy, but the talented companies and people who are making them possible in Birmingham’s construction and design industries.
In this year’s Building Birmingham Awards, you’ll read about 21 projects that were selected for this year’s feature and hear about what nominators think makes the project notable.
Honorees were chosen based on their impact, their degree of difficulty and unique aspects of the projects, among many other factors.
