Brasfield & Gorrie Breaks Ground on UAB Proton Therapy Center

Building Alabama

Brasfield & Gorrie recently joined Proton International and the University of Alabama at Birmingham to break ground on the first proton therapy facility in the state. The facility, Proton International at UAB, is expected to be ready to treat cancer patients in 2020.

Proton therapy uses highly precise proton beams instead of traditional X-rays to attack tumors. It is available at only 25 locations in the United States, most associated with academic medical centers. The therapy delivers a more precise dose of radiation to a tumor and can avoid damage to healthy surrounding tissue better than conventional X-ray radiation.

Brasfield & Gorrie is general contractor for the project, and Stantec is the architectural firm.
