Gresham Smith Named a Best Place to Work in Birmingham for Third Consecutive Year
Gresham Smith has been named one of the Birmingham Business Journal’s 2022 Best Places to Work.

“As a multi-market firm, we know that our commitment to our employees is how we can foster a world-class culture where everyone is successful. Culture is one of the lenses through which we measure our success,” said Gresham Smith CEO Rodney Chester. “We empower our employees to reach their highest potential, and that has been reflected in this distinguished recognition.”
Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, Gresham Smith has had a presence in Birmingham since 1979. Locally, the team specializes in providing architecture, engineering and interior design services for the firm’s Healthcare, Transportation, and Water + Environment clients, including University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Medicine, Encompass Health Corporation, Blue Bell Creameries, the Alabama Department of Transportation, City of Birmingham Water Works Board, and Jefferson County Department of Environmental Services.
