Karl Nyquist and David Pretzler established C&A Companies in 1993 to focus their custom homebuilding backgrounds on building communities that embodied the Colorado lifestyle. They first developed and built a townhome community in Boulder, Colorado. Since then, C&A Companies has developed and built more than 1,000 condominiums, townhomes and custom homes in several Front Range communities from Ft. Collins to Colorado Springs. C&A has also developed over 5,000 acres of land into 750 single-family lots, while preserving over 2,000 of those acres in open space, dedicated parks or conservation easements. Including past and current projects, C&A will have developed and built over 500,000 square feet of commercial and mixed use properties in the Front Range of Colorado. Over the years C&A has formed a team of professionals and trade partners whose collective mission has been to deliver the highest quality homes at the greatest value possible, thereby ensuring that homeowners live in perfect harmony with Colorado’s natural beauty.
In 2006, C&A was recognized by INC. magazine as number 239 on their list of the 500 fastest growing, privately held companies in the United States.
