“‘Honesty & Trust’ is what I was taught as a young man. This is how I live my life and will continue to do so. I feel this translates seamlessly into my day to day dealings with my work.” – Darren Swain

Darren “Duke” Swain

Field Supervisor


Duke joined The Constructive Ingenuity Team in August of 2019. He was brought on to oversee ongoing projects in the field. Through his hard work and attention to detail, Duke has become an integral part of the field operations of Constructive Ingenuity. Duke works with the Constructive Ingenuity team on keeping their projects running smooth, on time and on budget. His day to day dealings with clients, job supervision, ordering materials, scheduling inspections, handling of subcontractors, and his sense of loyalty make him a great addition to the team.

Duke has been in the construction industry for over 30 years. Starting with his early years,Duke worked for his stepfather as a carpenter in his custom home building company. Duke joined the USMC and reached the rank Sergeant, where he then received an Honorable Discharge. Duke learned the fundamentals of hard work, perseverance, dedication, loyalty, communication, and team building while serving his country. After the Military, Duke started his own construction company specializing in commercial and residential building. This is where he “cut his teeth” dealing with the day to day operations of a business as well as the attention needed for clients, subcontractors, city officials, building inspectors, architects, engineers, and all those involved in a construction project. His experience and respect in the construction community is well earned and deserved.
