Olsson Associates

About Us

Olsson Associates is a nationally recognized, employee-owned engineering and design firm that has been creating public and private projects throughout the United States. We've been around since 1956, and we offer comprehensive design and consulting services in site/civil, transportation, water, environmental, field operations, survey, and facilities.

With over 1,000 employees (and growing), nearly 30 offices in eight states, and a lengthy list of diverse clients, we believe our employees are our greatest asset and the key to our success. We seek to hire great people and put them in the right roles for their strengths.

In turn, our employees put our clients' needs first. We make decisions that are in the best interests of our clients and their projects in a professional and ethical manner. Our clients choose to work with us because they want a partnership with people who understand their specific needs and who tailor solutions that work for them.
