ECI Receives Top Honor in BizWest’s Mercury 100 Fastest Growing Company List

And the winner is… ECI!! We are so incredibly excited to announce that ECI has ranked in the number one spot for Flight I of BizWest’s Mercury 100 Fastest Growing Companies list for Northern Colorado. The Mercury 100 list is among the top honors a Northern Colorado business can receive, and we are very proud to top the 2019 list.


The list was announced in September 2020 and is determined by the annual revenue growth from 2017-2019. 100 companies are honored every year – 50 in Northern Colorado and 50 in Boulder Valley – and each region is divided into five “flights,” based on each company’s 2019 annual revenue. Our revenue placed us in Flight I, and due to our 108 percent growth from 2017-2019, we ranked number one in our flight.


This honor coincides with our 40th year in business, making it even more special. ECI was founded by Brian Peterson in 1980 as a one-man landscape contractor. Over the past four decades, ECI has grown to become the largest northern Colorado and Denver-area general contractor that specializes in the construction of landmark parks, sporting fields and other premier outdoor spaces that bring communities together and boost local economies.


Some of our most notable Northern Colorado projects include:

  • Loveland Sports Park Phases I and II: Loveland, 2006 and 2019
  • Spring Canyon Park: Fort Collins, 2007
  • MAX/Bus Rapid Transit: Fort Collins, 2014
  • Mehaffey Park: Loveland, 2015
  • Twin Silo Park: Fort Collins, 2017
