History
Baskerville-Donovan, Inc. first opened for business in Pensacola, Florida in 1927. BDI has played an integral role in the advancement of the community and associated infrastructure, in fact, founder Russell G. Patterson, served as Project Engineer for the financing, design and construction of the first bridge across Pensacola Bay. Over the course of time, the company has undergone extensive growth and corporate change, but it retains the pioneering spirit and innovation of its origins.

Our Story

Our headquarters are located in the heart of Downtown Pensacola and our firm has been a driving force for much of its revitalization. Part of the BDI mission is continuing the long tradition of giving back and supporting local civic, charitable and cultural events and organizations.
