And at Olsson, we’re leading the way, designing award-winning work that’s focused on optimizing the unique properties of this sustainable, cost-effective solution.

Our portfolio includes more than 1.5 million vertical feet of geothermal wells for projects across the Midwest. Each system is custom designed to meet the unique loads and site conditions for every site, for every building. And whether we’re creating plans for chilled water plants or steam-generated heating plants, our team is always looking beyond what’s been done to what could be done
