Basecamp AEC - Push Notifications/Exhibitor


Olson Forensic Solutions, LLC - Beverage Cart

David R. Olson, PE, LEED AP, FASHRAE

I help identify and resolve mechanical failures within buildings, both before and after they are constructed. I previously formed and operated a full-service mechanical engineering firm that successfully operated in Metro-Denver for over 30 years. We successfully designed HVAC, plumbing and fire protection systems for many building types and uses. I am knowledgeable and cognizant of the nuances caused by high-altitude mechanical system operation. Attorneys representing AE firms and building owners seek my assistance to objectively investigate and opine on the source and remedies for particular building malfunctions. I help provide clarity regarding the adherence to the applicable Standard of Care by the parties involved. I work to stay fluent with the content and interpretations of the ever-evolving governing building codes and standards. I have served terms as a member of the ASHRAE and the State of Colorado Electrical Boards. My past experiences and activities have resulted in a thorough understanding of the design and operation of the many types of mechanical systems used in buildings today and in years past.

I am dedicated to helping my clients achieve understanding of complicated mechanical deficiencies, preferably before they are constructed, but most often afterwards. I work in either defense or plaintiff's roles. I tend to find the defense assignments to be more stimulating and challenging – often demanding a finer understanding of the facts and circumstances. My clients tell me that the reports I prepare are thorough and succinct, detailed and understandable. I provide seasoned testimony, clearly and effectively. My consulting mechanical engineering experience is broad. I offer to share my knowledge and experience, helping find and assure justice to those you represent.
