PATRICK DUCKWORTH

President

Patrick graduated from Mississippi State University in 1998 and moved to Atlanta where he began his career working on a Golf Course Construction project.  In 2004, Patrick moved to Augusta, and expanded his knowledge base as he oversaw the construction of multi-story office buildings, educational spaces, and multiple medical and healthcare facilities. Each project has allowed him to gain invaluable experience and knowledge of the construction industry.

In late 2015, Patrick started a new chapter of his career and founded Duckworth Development, LLC. His mission was to be able to provide the highest level of expertise and quality, while maintaining an unmatched level of personal interest, trust, and client relationships. Listening to each client’s needs and creating the most customized approach to every project with great attention to detail has allowed Patrick to form lasting relationships in the business—with clients and contractors alike.
