John E. Olsson started Olsson Associates in 1956 on the ideals of passion, innovation, and creativity. But he realized he couldn’t do it alone. Working with others was critical to his success and today, that collaborative spirit is still at the core of Olsson Associates. We know that how we work together makes the difference in the solutions we deliver. We’re more than a company of individuals, we’re a team of problem solvers. We see problems as opportunities for creativity. The process of finding the right answer is different for every client and every project. This idea of collaboration affects how we think, act, and work as a team. It means we’re able to uncover what works best, balancing each client’s unique needs along the way. Ideal collaboration means communicating what works, what doesn’t, and what might. Combining our fresh approach with our technical expertise, we’re able to look at projects and our clients’ needs from all angles. And, in coming up with collaborative solutions, everyone comes out ahead. We challenge ourselves to continually solve problems in new ways and, in doing so, our clients become a part of a unique process in which they’ve been able to realize more from their budgets and other resources.
