Exceeding Expectations

We chose Duckworth Development to build our new law office and they were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were very cooperative, easy to work with, and had a lot of good ideas. They were quick to respond and follow up on any of our requests. We could not be more pleased with the experience and because of Duckworth the end product was much better than what we had hoped for.

We entrust much of our construction pipeline to Duckworth due to their ability to meet a budget and timeline. We especially like their ability to keep projects moving forward at all times and anticipating issues before they arise. Their onsite personnel are very knowledgable, professional, and have reputable subs on site.

Beth and I want to thank you and all the group at Duckworth Development for a great job on our renovation project. On time, slightly under budget, excellent quality, always helpful and courteous subs made this a very pleasing experience. Steve was fantastic and went out of his way to help in every way. Now we know why you and Patrick were so highly recommended.

Duckworth Development was contracted to construct a large dental specialty office and surgery center for our practice. We had not had any experience with this company before but had colleagues and friends use them for various sized projects and builds. What an incredible experience we had with them and we were exceptionally pleased with our choice and would do it again in a heartbeat. Jim and Patrick provided a “can do” attitude that they impart through all levels of their company and they engage subcontractors that mimic this same determination to deliver a great end product. The knowledge base is vast, the process was smooth, the flexibility for some of our changes along the way were received with “we can do that” and “no problem”. We were encouraged to make a lot of decisions out of the box early and in the end that was a perfect way to go, we avoided surprises and were able to manage any hiccups along the way. The BEST part of the whole process was that we were done weeks early and thousands of dollars under budget, two unheard of things in any construction process. The results have been a stunning facility that surgeons, staff, patients, peers and vendor partners are still raving about six weeks after opening day. Duckworth Development is a quality builder that will construct something that you can be proud of for years to come, thanks!

I chose Duckworth Development to build my new dental office.  Construction of a new facility can be such a stressful and time consuming process but Patrick and his team walked through the process with me every step.  The work was top notch and the communication and follow up during and after completion was outstanding.  I am so proud of this building and very thankful for Patrick and the entire team that made it happen.  They are fair and professional and I would highly recommend them for any commercial construction project.

I didn’t think it was possible to go through the building process and still like your builder by the end of the project. We are very type A and particular about everything. But everyone with Duckworth Development was amazing to work with! Now that our building is complete, we not only still like our builders- we consider them good friends. I couldn’t recommend them more!

- Drs. Alan & Eliza Myers, Myers Family Dental

The entire team at Duckworth Development has been a pleasure to work with. They upfitted my dental practice, on budget and on time. They were always responsive when I had questions or needed something, and the entire process was efficient and simple. The final product they delivered exceeded my expectations. I still receive compliments daily from patients and colleagues on how great my office looks. Great company to work with. I highly recommend.

"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."

"I had the pleasure of completing an interior renovation with Duckworth Development in Augusta and I cannot say enough positive things about my experience. Being an out of town project manager automatically comes with its own set of challenges, but I was immediately put at ease from the very first conversations with Jim and his team. Each member working on our project was professional, detail oriented, and knowledgeable about not only the industry but the specifics of my project and building. When a problem arose, they came to the table with solutions so that we could resolve quickly and keep the project moving and on track. They finished my project on time and with the shortest punch list I’ve seen in years. I certainly hope to work with the Duckworth team again in the future!"
