About Us


Incorporated in 1980, Blue-Con Excavating began business as an Underground Service Contractor.
Starting off with a few rented pieces of construction equipment, the company grew steadily over the years. The rented equipment soon turned into purchases currently comprised of a fleet of modern equipment. Underground servicing of small commercial developments made way to larger commercial developments as well as new residential subdivisions.


Dedication to Elly Haasen


Our dear sister and friend passed away on January 9, 2010.

Together with her brother Matt she inspired enthusiasm and trust throughout the organization that has extended out and resulted in a positive impact on our customers, suppliers and fellow workers. 

Elly will always be remembered for her upbeat spirit and the strong relationships she developed with whomever she met.
