Connell Resources, Inc has been serving Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming for 65 Years, as a family owned and operated business. Connell Resources, Inc. operated as Loveland Excavating Company from its inception in 1949 until 1982. The company began work excavating basements, grading, and utilities. We have since grown to include large infrastructure projects, state and interstate highways, as well as underground utilities, asphalt paving and aggregate production. We self-perform at least 85% of all contracts awarded to us. We have a solid reputation and pride ourselves on repeat clients and our longstanding local presence as a trustworthy, quality contractor in Northern Colorado.

Northern Colorado is our home and we are grateful for the opportunities we have been given over the past 65 years. Connell Resources, Inc. is fortunate to have a loyal and dedicated workforce that is not only knowledgeable but committed to doing their best. We are proud to have employees who have worked with us for more than 20 years and bring incredible skill to the team.

We appreciate our many clients who have given us the opportunities to prove ourselves repeatedly and grow our business. We welcome new clients and encourage you to allow us to assist you with your project needs. We have the capacity and knowledge to perform as a general contractor as well as a subcontractor. We typically self-perform approximately 85% of the projects we manage, with earthmoving, underground utilities, aggregate base and asphalt paving. We also mine and process our own aggregates, and produce our own hot mix asphalt. The work we do not self-perform; testing, survey, concrete flatwork, fly-ash and traffic control, we have long standing relationships with companies that can assist us to complete your project start to finish.

Connell is licensed to work in all cities and counties along the Colorado Front Range and we are pre-qualified with the Departments of Transportation in Colorado and Wyoming.


In 1991 Connell Resources, Inc. expanded its operations to Steamboat Springs & Colorado’s western slope. The Steamboat Springs operation focuses primarily on aggregate sales, asphalt production & paving, and county or highway road construction, however with the support of the Fort Collins division, Connell is capable of completing site work projects of all sizes and scopes.

Additionally Connell’s paving crews can turn their expertise to patching, parking lot paving and driveway paving to fit the needs of any client. For the future, Connell is always watching for market opportunities to expand the western slope operations, and hopes to continue to grow and better serve our clients in both the private and public sectors. In 2007, Connell also started gravel production and sales in Meeker, Colorado.
