"Being a humble Christian first, I still feel compelled to provide this testimony to recognize the exemplary performance of Duckworth Development, Patrick Duckworth, and his people in support of Westminster Schools of Augusta build out of Pamplin Hall basement 2019-20. I am the Building and Grounds Director for Westminster Schools and I cannot express how much a part of the plan, build, and overseeing workmanship I was privileged to be involved in. Nearly every day I was invited to discuss the project to ensure it was following according to the plans. As with all construction projects, modifications take place. I was well informed and allowed input to ensure the end product fit our needs and met our expectations as a school. Patrick and his team are good communicators, keeping their customers’ concerns and needs a top priority. Much of the build occurred during school hours. The faculty and students of the school saw little to no impact on their daily routines. This is due to this construction company’s attention to detail in mitigating sound and disturbance issues while still meeting deadlines keeping the plan through completion. When a disturbance did take place, they were quick to understand, and flexible to modify on the spot ensuring school operations continued smoothly while simultaneously maintaining construction flow. To say their quality of work was top notch is an understatement. Patrick and his crew treated our build as if it were their own home, providing the best possible craftsmanship and product for the space. A plumbing subcontractor commented that even his own home didn’t get the kind of attention to detail he gave to our school. The expectations Duckworth Development required of subcontractors were exemplary, and reflect great credit upon Patrick, his crew, and the contractors they hire to work for them. I am completely satisfied with Patrick Duckworth and Duckworth Development. To say it would be disappointing not to have this company, this crew, or Patrick involved with other construction work at Westminster Schools would be understating their impact on the School. I highly recommend Duckworth Development to anyone in need of a quality construction company who takes their jobs and their customers to heart the way this company does."
