Topflight Project Executive Trent Johnson Takes RDU Airport to New Heights

Trent’s leadership has been instrumental in nurturing Balfour Beatty’s long-standing relationship with valued aviation clients and executing the challenges of working in an active airport environment

Trent Johnson has always enjoyed a good challenge. For the past 15 years, he’s had the opportunity to solve plenty of them at Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU), where Balfour Beatty has been entrusted to build 16 projects ranging in size and scope from a $700,000 carpet replacement to the recent win of the $400 million Runway 5L/23R Replacement Program. Although each project is unique, one constant remains: Trent’s leadership has been instrumental in building strong teams that have successfully executed the challenges of working in an active airport environment.

Relentless Ally Makes an Immeasurable Impact

Communication, decisiveness and approachability are only a few tools of the trade that Chad Humphrey carries with him to work each day, both on the job and within his community. As senior project manager for Balfour Beatty, he has contributed to the development of high-profile, large-scale construction projects in and around Raleigh, NC. His superior project management and consistent community outreach demonstrate that he’s not just here to watch the Triangle grow from the sidelines; he’s here to be a true Relentless Ally—to be involved, to contribute, and to make a difference, one project, one cause at a time.

Since joining Balfour Beatty in 2008, Chad has had three successive elevations in leadership that were a direct result of significant contributions he has made to some of the most notable projects in eastern North Carolina, which include projects at Johnston Memorial Hospital and the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.


Southeast Raleigh YMCA and Wake County Elementary School

This project was the first phase part of the Southeast Raleigh Promise to develop a 110,000-square-foot facility that joined a YMCA and a Wake County Elementary School. Included in this project were perimeter roads, landscaping, playing fields, playgrounds, an aquatics center, community gardens, sidewalks and other YMCA facilities.

UNC Wilmington

For one general contractor to take on four separate projects concurrently within one university is not only challenging, but also virtually without parallel within the public education sphere. A respected leader in higher education construction, Balfour Beatty was uniquely suited to deliver UNC-Wilmington's complex vision.
