Trident Construction, in a joint venture with Skanska USA, was selected by the City of Charleston as the Construction Manager at Risk for the renovation of the Gaillard Center. The project features a completely new exterior, a spectacular performing arts center, a grand exhibition hall with a full service kitchen, and an 80,000 SF new office building, which houses the City’s Municipal Emergency Operations Center.
During the preconstruction phase, the Skanska-Trident team worked closely with the City staff and design professionals to deliver this world class award winning landmark facility.

I never have to worry about project success when I have the Trident Team on board.
Trident Construction - people I enjoy being with and people I can trust.
Trident Construction earned my trust during the design/build construction of Fire Station #2. They have always exceeded my expectations.
Based on recommendations and their TEAM BUILD approach, we selected Trident Construction to accomplish a momentous design/build task. Within weeks, we realized we had hired the right company. Trident Construction quickly assembled a team of design professionals, developed a workable design and construction schedule, established a reliable budget and led an amazing effort. They have earned our highest trust. The water park opened on time and on budget.
Robbie Fairey and I became friends even before he started Trident Construction. Over these past thirty years I have had the pleasure of introducing Trident Construction to my clients with complete confidence that they represented the highest standards of professionalism in the construction industry. It has given me tremendous satisfaction when those same clients come back, after the successful completion of their projects, and thank me for the introduction to Trident Construction.
We have worked with Trident Construction since the very beginning, including the beautiful up-fit to our offices. The folks at Trident are a professional group and a pleasure to work with.
The value that Trident Construction brings during the preconstruction process sets them apart from any other company... they have earned my TRUST.
Trident has proven what we hoped and what we had heard when we hired them to build our dream. That Trident is the premier construction firm in the area. Trident delivered what we needed, a first class facility on time and under budget. Great job to all at Trident.
When I think of Trident Construction I think of performance, integrity and timeliness. That’s been our experience with the projects that we have been involved in with Trident.
In the last three years, I worked with Trident on the $30 million Seabrook project and a renovation to Johns Island Presbyterian, a three-hundred year old colonial church. Given the diversity of these two projects, and Trident’s integrity, professionalism and focus on customer satisfaction, I would be comfortable in recommending them for any type of project in the future.
Trident worked with our corporate offices and made the entire buildout as seamless as possible. We are extremely pleased with the end result!
Our Experience with Trident Construction was nothing but first rate. They were on time, on budget and the quality of the workmanship was superb. If we have another project I would want the Trident Team to do our work. Thanks again for a job well done.
We worked with Trident Construction in their first decade and continue to work with them in their third. In our experience, they have always ‘joined the team’ to the benefit of our client and have been a trustworthy source in delivering the built product of our designs.
