The DuCon Way :

DuCon, the company, is licensed and experienced in development and construction, standing on over 30 years of relative quality, quantifiable experience. The principles and managers of DuCon have managed construction in 3 different states throughout the country, exemplifying a proven track record of quality management, customer satisfaction, dependable business practices, and financial accountability.

DuCon was founded out of desire and need. The founder, Ernest F. DuBose II, had the desire to provide clients and business partners with championship level service that competes on their behalf at all times, and the construction industry had a need for a company that values trust, morals, and relationships as much as profit margins and return on investment. DuCon does not believe that you should sacrifice one for the other, but rather if you have the right team and firm working on your behalf, you can achieve both.

"Proving that construction projects can be a "Win-Win"

Our P.R.I.D.E.

Our mission is to glorify God by using our skills, resources, and work ethic to provide quality construction and superior service to our clients, industry, and community.  There is a need for DuCon within our industry and community, and it is our mission to meet that need.

We believe in giving back to our community by investing in community projects, hiring local laborers, and being personally involved in the development of our youth and community driven agencies.   Here are a few of our affiliations.
