David Partridge

Founder & CEO

Charleston native, David Partridge, is a commercial general contractor and residential builder. He discovered at an early age his love of working with his hands to create something lasting and beautiful from raw materials.

He gleaned much of his knowledge from his grandfathers one of whom was an engineer and the other a commercial land and real-estate developer. He absorbed their knowledge in many areas of construction and fabrication. He grew up loving construction, carpentry, and machine operation. Growing up he learned skills of craftsmanship and dedication. He has a love for fine wood craftsmanship and detail.

He enjoys spending time with his family and helping out in the community. When he is not building something, you can find him fishing in the intracoastal waterways.

Andrew Russell

Assistant Project Manager

Andrew Russell was born and raised in the South Carolina Lowcountry. As a child and teen, he spent a considerable amount of time in a cabinet-making shop, and it was there he developed a love for the fabrication process. He takes pride in seeing something beautiful created from raw materials and has a passion for perfecting the details. His enthusiasm for creating has kept him in the home building, repair, and restoration industry for the last 15 years. 

Andrew’s goal is service. He believes that serving his clients at work and the community at home will make everyone successful. He has achieved over 100 service hours with the formerly known Lowcountry Furniture Bank, and he coaches with the City of Charleston’s Recreation Department. His favorite things to do when he’s not working are spending time with his family, participating in his church’s men’s group,  and fishing in local tournaments.
