IN THE WORKS: A New CAI Headquarters

We are renovating the former Office of Senior Citizens Services building on Highland Avenue in downtown Birmingham for our new office space. The stand-alone building is in the historic Southside district with great visibility from Highland Avenue and Niazuma Avenue.

The majority of the bottom floor was previously underground, so we knew we'd have to find a way to let the light in. We designed a sunken courtyard that will have cantilever benches and planters, trees, a gravel area, and bleacher seating for hosting lectures or small concerts. We are so excited about including a water feature, an outdoor lounge and fireplace, and a library. All this will be in addition to conference rooms, workspaces, and offices. We are currently under construction and hope to be finished by Thanksgiving.
