About Pate Contractors

Pate Contractors is a full-service, Commercial General Contractor specializing in turn-key, ground up construction; building remodels and tenant improvements throughout Tucson and Southern Arizona. We believe in partnering with our clients to ensure that their goals are met and the highest quality project is delivered. With our outstanding team of superintendents, project managers and subcontractors we strive to not only meet, but exceed the expectations of our clients in every aspect of our work. Our values Integrity, Honesty and Accountability extend to all facets of the construction process.

Pate Contractors is owned and operated by Natalie Arzaga and Tim Pate, both of which have over 25 years of commercial construction experience. Pate Contractors is carrying on the traditions and ethics of Tim's late father, Herman Pate, the founder of Pate Contractors in the 1970's. Natalie runs the office opperations and estimating; Tim is in charge of the field.

NATALIE ARZAGA is a native Tucsonan. While attending the University of Arizona, Natalie began working for a general contractor, and from that point on, construction became the focus of her career. She takes great pride in the projects she has been involved in over the years as well as playing a role in the growth and development of Tucson and Southern Arizona.

TIM PATE grew up in Nogales, Arizona and later moved to Tucson. Having learned the construction trade from his father, it has been a major theme during most of Tim's life. When Tim is not out on a job site, he enjoys working on projects in his garage and acquiring tools. There is probably not a tool that Tim does not own! Tim has earned the respect of our clients for his vast knowledge and proficiency in all aspects of construction.
