After working in Oklahoma for several years, Olsson Associates opened an office in the state earlier this fall.
The office, located in Oklahoma City, currently employs over 20 people who are already busy providing an array of engineering, environmental, construction and material testing related services.
“We felt the timing was right to open an office here—we have some great relationships with our clients and hope to further the work we provide to them,” said Olsson President Brad Strittmatter. “Plus, we were able to find an outstanding expert to lead our Oklahoma operations and a fantastic group of professionals has joined him.”
The office is led by Alan Soltani, Ph.D., PE, a transportation engineer with more than 36 years of experience. Soltani worked for the Oklahoma Department of Transportation from 1983 until 1999, and he served as the state chief traffic engineer from 1995 until 1999. He has been in private practice since 1999.
Olsson Associates is currently working with clients such as the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority, Oklahoma Department of Transportation, City of Oklahoma City and several private businesses.
“Our Olsson Oklahoma City staff has prided itself on building strong relationships with our clients by being responsive to their needs, providing practical solutions and producing high quality plans,” Soltani said. “Many of our employees have worked together for many years, so our team is already off to a great start.”
The Oklahoma City office recently moved from a temporary workspace to a permanent office at 201 N.W. 63rd Street, Suite 130. Employees can be reached at 405.242.6600.
“Olsson Associates is making a great investment in our operations, and we’re working hard to provide great client service while being involved in our communities and helping them continue to grow,” Soltani said.
