BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – General contractor Brasfield & Gorrie recently celebrated a construction milestone at Grandview Cancer Center, located in Birmingham, Alabama. Crews signed and placed the final beam on the new, 26,000-square-foot facility, topping out the structure for the freestanding cancer center located on the Grandview Medical Center campus. As is tradition, the field crew also positioned a tree at the structure’s highest point.
The cancer center will include a linear accelerator, pharmacy, three chemotherapy infusion bays and PET/CT scans. Aesthetically, the cancer center will feature Grandview’s signature glass and curved facade. Earl Swensson Associates is serving as architect of the project.
The facility will enhance the existing Grandview Medical Center campus, which includes a 12-story, 1-million-square-foot hospital, an 8-story, 220,000-square-foot medical office building and a 1.1-million-square-foot, 3,000-space parking deck. All existing structures were completed by Brasfield & Gorrie in 2015.
