About Us

DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT. DELIBERATELY PERSONAL.

Nicholas & Associates is a full-service contractor, providing comprehensive general contracting, construction management, and design/build services.
“Whatever it takes.”
- Nick Papanicholas, Sr.

Nick Sr. was a brilliant businessman, whose practicality, energy and vision could take the smallest idea and grow it to its fullest potential. Capitalizing on a small construction opportunity from his kitchen table in 1978, Nick Sr. took his vision and turned it into a national construction enterprise; building schools, churches, park and recreation facilities, and municipal projects throughout Illinois and Wisconsin.

His business accomplishments paled in comparison to his personality and capacity for giving. He was magnetic and a great storyteller, who effortlessly entertained rooms full of people with his jokes. He found humor in every situation. He was a friend to all and a friend for life. He treated everyone with respect and compassion and giving was his greatest pleasure. Nick’s mantra was “if you give it away it all comes back ten-fold” and he spent every minute giving to those around him. Anyone who knew him, loved him. Anyone who loved him, wanted to be near him. He is the reason that Nicholas & Associates has reached the level of success it has today. His kindness and generosity have come back ten-fold, again and again as his legacy lives on…

Nicholas & Associates continues to thrive and succeed today under the direction of Nick Sr.’s four children (Nick Jr., Joe, Tony and Gina).
