Building Better Infrastructure Since 1950
Fast Growing Construction Industry
After the war ended, Mr. Dubose started working in the fast growing construction industry in the Southeastern United States with Hooper Construction Company.
Alabama Road Builders Association
The company joined the Alabama Road Builders Association in 1956.
Mr. Dubose is featured in an article by the Alabama Road Builders Association. To view the story, visit the ARBA website»
Also known as DCC for short, DuBose Construction Company incorporated in 1961 and became known as DuBose Construction Corporation.
Now licensed to conduct business throughout much of the Southeastern United States, DCC provided construction services in both the private and public sectors for several states, including:
- South Carolina
Mr. DuBose was always a great supporter of highway construction.
From the stories that still circulate concerning the early days of the Alabama Road Builders Association, it’s safe to say he enjoyed the camaraderie of the Association and its members immensely.
Mr. DuBose had a “hands on” management style where frequently he would be the first and last person at the job site in addition to tending to the administrative functions of the business.
DCC completed several major projects during the 1960s, including sites located in:
- Leon County, Florida
- Lake County, Florida
- Baldwin County, Alabama
- Escambia County, Alabama
DuBose Construction also performed work in Jamaica during these years, extending their service area nearly 500 miles to the south! Ya Mon!

The Interstate Era
Long before the Internet phenomenon began, the Interstate Highway System is how people connected.
In the 1970s, DuBose Construction had a significant role in constructing new portions of Interstate highway in Florida and Alabama. They built approximately forty-five miles of Interstate in Florida, including a 14-mile section of I-75 in Sarasota County near Tampa.
The company also completed several notable projects for the Alabama Highway Department (now called the “Alabama Department of Transportation”) during these years.
On the Move!
It was during the 70s when DCC relocated its corporate headquarters from downtown Montgomery to its present location near the Mt. Meigs, Alabama community east of Montgomery.
Over time, Montgomery expanded its corporate limits, so we once again have a Montgomery street address. Find us on Google Maps by clicking here»

Private Sector Projects
During the 1980s, DuBose Construction began focusing its construction business almost exclusively in the State of Alabama.
The company continued to bid and construct projects for the private sector. Examples of larger projects completed include:
Site development work for residential living spaces like:
- Eastdale Apartments
- McGehee Park Apartments
- Eagle Landing Apartments
- Villas at the Curve Apartments
Commercial site work at:
- McGehee Place Shopping Center
- Eastdale Mall
- Stratford Square
- Eastdale Plaza
Other major projects included paper mills in Georgia and Alabama.
Subdivisions & Real Estate
During the early 1990s the company continued along the same course, competing in the Highway Department business while making various projects within the private sector.
It was also during this time that Mr. DuBose led his company into a new arena. The company began to purchase and develop tracts of real estate with local investors in the Montgomery area.
The company took an active role in the site preparation and development of subdivisions and other real estate developments.
