Nixcavating Celebrates 30 Years of Serving Longmont!

Nixcavating Inc., a Longmont-based and family-operated construction company is thrilled to celebrate its 30th year in business.  Founded in November of 1982 by Scott Nix, the company has had four different Longmont locations, including Scott’s home garage, since finding its most recent location at 1821 Boston Avenue in 1995.    

Nixcavating specializes in underground utility installation and repairs, but also handles excavation and site preparation, demolition, and irrigation throughout Longmont and the Front Range.  As a flexibly run small business, they are able to simultaneously meet the needs of residential and commercial clients while striving to keep with their company philosophy of treating those they’re working with as they’d like to be treated – with respect, confidence, and integrity.  The family operated business averages around 25 full time employees, including Scott’s two kids, Sara, age 29, and Brady, age 26.

 Being a supporting member of the community is a priority to Scott Nix, and through Nixcavating, does his best to support a variety of local non-profits.  Some of the regular events and causes supported are the St. Vrain Valley Habitat for Humanity, the Skyline Kiwanis Club, Boy Scouts of America, the Boulder County Fair, A Woman’s Work, Snow Care for Troops, as well as local baseball teams.  Scott Nix has made it a priority to personally be involved in his community, serving on the Longmont Transportation Advisory Board from 1986 – 1992, running for Boulder County Commissioner in 1996, serving on the Habitat for Humanity Board from 1995 to 2005, Realtors Citizen of the Year in 2002, and in 2011, awarded the Col. Dan Straight Distinguished Citizen Award by the Longs Peak Counsel Boy Scouts of America.

Scott Nix says “It’s a privilege to still be in business when so many other great companies haven’t made it.  There’s been a lot of hard work and sacrifices, and I can say my faith was tested, but it was also renewed.  Thank you to all our customers and employees – past and present – who’ve helped make this milestone a possibility.”

Scott & Brady Nix to Support A Woman's Work

Thanks to some prodding from good friends involved with A Woman’s Work, Nixcavating owner Scott Nix has agreed to participate in their 2012 Magnificent Men event. “Since I’m not as “magnificent” as I used to be, I’ve weaseled my son, Brady, into helping out as well”, notes Scott. The event is an auction, where Scott and Brady, along with the other twenty-three teams involved, will be auctioned off to support this very worthy organization. A Woman’s Work is local non-profit that provides immediate financial assistance to women in the St. Vrain Valley School District.

The event takes place over three days at the Dickens Opera House at 300 Main Street in Longmont, with Scott and Brady going up for auction on Wednesday, July 18th at 5:30pm. Scott and Brady are hosting a Nixcavating themed “date”, where up to eight people will be served a construction worker lunch, and have the opportunity to operate some heavy equipment for about two hours.

The top twelve men who are able to bring in the most money during the auction, and though donations raised beforehand, will be on the 2013 Magnificent Men of A Woman’s Work calendar.

The event is open to the public, but if you’d like to donate beforehand, please either click here to go to their personalized donation page (donations accepted through paypal) or send a check made out to AWW to Nixcavating, (PO Box 2232, Longmont, CO 80502) and note “Mag Men 2012 – Scott/Brady Nix” in the memo line.
