Bennett Humphries joins Newcomb & Boyd as a Mechanical Engineer. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree from Georgia Tech in May of 2018. Bennett began his career co-oping with Newcomb & Boyd in 2015.
Some of Bennett’s favorite projects he worked on as a co-op include Hotel Indigo, Duke University, Student Health & Wellness Center, and Charlotte Marriott City Center Renovation. His favorite memories from that time include traveling to job sites, co-op lunches, and co-op meetings. When asked about his co-op experience Bennett said, “I was able to build relationships within the office as well as develop a base of industry knowledge that made the transition to full-time employment in June of 2018 a smooth transition.”
Bennett is originally from Forsyth, Georgia, but lives in Midtown with another of Newcomb & Boyd’s new employees, Shane Laufer. When he’s not hanging out with friends or playing with his beagle, Sadie, Bennett enjoys playing guitar, hunting, and fishing. Throughout college, he was a part of the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity and volunteered for Ducks Unlimited, a non-profit wetland and waterfowl conservation organization. His love of math and science led him to choose an engineering career.
