Shapleigh Smith and Cleveland Patterson, longtime residents of Stowe, formed Patterson & Smith Construction in 1991. Chapman Smith, son of Shapleigh, joined the company in 2003, and has since taken the reins as President of the company. Chapman brings years of hands-on construction experience and a degree in Architectural Engineering Technology. His company leadership also ensures a seamless transition of the company’s abilities, strengths and philosophy into the future. Chapman shares a strong commitment to customer service, community and excellence, and delivering stunning results.

The foundation for Patterson & Smith Construction’s success is teamwork and we are fortunate to have a talented team dedicated to building high quality homes, estates and commercial spaces. Zeph Bryant joined us as a project manager in 2013. Zeph has been in construction his entire adult life and in that time, he has worn many hats on a project site.  He has a range of experiences in the construction industry that give him a full understanding of all the pieces to a project. Jim Quine joined us in 2014 as our office controller. Jim has extensive experience in small business accounting and project management, and draws from that experience to keep our company running smoothly. Joe Cook, our estimator, completes our well-rounded management staff.

We currently have more than two dozen carpenters, painters and fine woodworking craftsmen employed by us, as well as a large pool of extremely talented tradesmen and sub-contractors that we work with on a regular basis.  Together they bring extensive experience, knowledge and talent to our company.  We would not be able to deliver on our promises without the skill and dedication of our employees.  Good teamwork is built on trust, respect, participation and collaboration. This is how we work with each other, with our vendors, and with our clients and together we are always working toward a common goal of excellence
