Doster Construction Company on Thursday held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil its Huntsville office location, which will oversee more than $200 million in projects the company is conducting in the area.
The Birmingham-based company provides general contracting and construction management services throughout the United States. The company in June announced its intentions to open the Huntsville office.
In announcing the office’s opening, Walton Doster, president and CEO of the company, noted the city’s unprecedented growth.
“We wanted to create a local presence for our clients and expand our reach in Huntsville,” said Doster. “We’re excited to become a part of the thriving Huntsville community.”
Conn Crabtree, vice president and operations manager for the new Huntsville Division, expressed his excitement about the company’s increased presence in the Tennessee Valley.
“The growth in the Huntsville area is a natural fit for Doster’s strengths – healthcare, multifamily, commercial, and industrial construction,” said Crabtree. “Doster has worked in the Huntsville area for more than two decades, and we’re excited to plant roots and continue building relationships in North Alabama.”

“It’s an exciting day for everyone here at Doster with the opening of our office,’’ Crabtree told Huntsville Business Journal. “A little bit of backstory: We’ve done quite a bit of work here in Huntsville, hopefully you’ve all seen our signs around town and opening this office is not here just to support the projects we already have but to establish ourselves in the Huntsville community.’’
“We’re thrilled to be a part of it and embedding ourselves in the town,’’ he added, “and getting to know everybody here and just being a good corporate partner.”
The construction company says its current Huntsville projects include the Eclipse at City Centre mixed use development, Novare Madison apartments, Constellation mixed use development, Village at Hays Preserve apartments and a new eye surgery center.
