Aislinn Nagy Named one of ENR’s National Top 20 Under 40

by Balfour Beatty

Engineering News-Record (ENR) recently named Aislinn Nagy, senior project manager in North Carolina, as one of their National Top 20 Under 40. Aislinn was selected for this honor after being named one of ENR Southeast’s Top Young Professionals.

Since joining Balfour Beatty in 2015, Aislinn has made an indelible mark on the business through her exceptional leadership on and off the jobsite. She has been an invaluable member of such projects as the Award-winning Mooresville Police Department Headquarters, the Reynolds American, Inc. Plaza Restack project and the City of Lexington City Centre.

A life-long learner, Aislinn earned her MBA from Winthrop University in 2023. Today, she is giving back to the next generation of construction professionals by sitting on the industry advisory board of her alma mater, the Virginia Tech Myers-Lawson School of Construction.

Here’s what ENR had to say about Aislinn’s impressive career:

“With more than a decade of professional experience, Nagy has made contributions to over 7 million sq ft and $1.3 billion worth of commercial construction projects across 10 market sectors. She holds a bachelor’s degree in building construction from Virginia Tech, where she received the Building Construction Outstanding Senior Award in 2011. In 2022, the university once again acknowledged her contributions by presenting her with the Outstanding Alumni Award. Nagy leads informative seminars, participates in panel discussions and leads tours of her jobsites for Balfour Beatty’s local Connecting Women employee affinity group. During the construction of the recently completed Mooresville Police Dept. headquarters, she took the initiative to raise funds for a soft interview room within the facility.

The room provides a safe and comforting space for individuals being interviewed after difficult or traumatic events. Collaborating with a detective at the police department and Connecting Women, she raised donations to furnish the room beyond the initial vision for the project. Outside of her work on projects, Nagy supports such local organizations as the ACE Mentor Program, Habitat for Humanity, Make-A-Wish Foundation, local soup kitchens and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.”
