Birmingham-headquartered Brasfield & Gorrie recently topped out the HudsonAlpha Discovery Life Sciences building in Huntsville. Topping out marks a structure reaching its full height. Construction on the lab and office building is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2023.

This is Brasfield & Gorrie’s third project with HudsonAlpha. The company’s work in North Alabama spans a variety of market sectors, including commercial, aerospace, government, healthcare, industrial, and mission critical. The company has completed more than $668 million projects accounting for 3.8 million square feet in the science and technology construction sector.
