Jefferson County 2121 Building


This project restored Jefferson County’s 2121 Building, an iconic 1950s midcentury-modern high-rise building, which has been a significant part of Birmingham’s skyline for more than 60 years. The County engaged Poole & Company to assist in developing a multi-phased approach to restore this 18-story building’s exterior and interior and modernize the building systems to improve energy efficiency.    The scope of the project included restoration of the building envelope, a comprehensive renovation of the building’s core and common areas, building systems replacement, and exterior lighting and signage.  The fresh new materials and colors and accent lighting remain true to the building’s original design and highlight the bold composition of vertical and horizontal planes.  The design team devised a multi-phased approach that allowed for continuous occupancy throughout construction with minimum disruption to building tenants.
