Court Olson also has respectable professional credentials.  He holds two bachelor degrees and a master’s degree in Civil Engineering and Construction Management.  He also holds the following professional certifications:           > Certified Construction Manager (CCM) from the Construction Management Association of     America; > LEEDap bd+c from the U.S. Green Building Council; and, > Design-Build Professional from the Design-Build Institute of America. Building on more than three decades of Court’s well connected building histiory in the Pacific Northwest, OBC draws on appropriate building industry professionals to form uniquely focused teams of specialized consultants that suit a particular project’s needs.  For example, to provide multi-faceted design-builder procurement services OBC has previously engaged mechanical, electrical, civil, lighting, acoustical, audio-visual, kitchen, architectural, and building envelope specialists to satisfy a particular client’s needs.    This multi-faceted teaming approach allows OBC the flexibility to collect custom and specialized skills to fit a particular project’s needs.  This approach of engaging consultants from other industry firms also affords OBC a low business overhead which benefits the budget of our clients.
