  • Virtual Design


Olsen Electric provides a full spectrum of electrical contracting services throughout Seattle and Washington State.  We excel in meeting the complex demands of today’s electrical construction by using our skill in aligning the interests of all the project’s stakeholders regardless of contracting method. This means understanding the owner’s design intent, budget parameters, and schedule needs while coordinating with every participant to meet those needs. Our goal is simple – deliver superior electrical construction to fulfill our client’s vision on time and on budget.

Recognizing that successful projects start with thorough planning, Olsen Electric,  in early project phases, employs advanced procedures to enhance construction workflow. From concept to project sign-off, we utilize Virtual Design and Integrated Project Delivery to ensure your facility is built with minimum clashes and shorter schedules, and more profitability.  Being your single point of contact for electrical contracting, we leverage control of the construction process to build better facilities that are more efficient and deliver greater value.


Olsen Electric understands the importance of coordination between the design team, owner and project construction team. Without proper coordination and the correct information, project schedules and budgets are adversely affected.  Olsen Electric’s Integrated Project Delivery process harnesses the experience and knowledge of stakeholders in a construction project to optimize results, add value to the owner, reduce waste, and increase efficiency through all phases of design, fabrication, and construction.

Integrated Project Delivery allows us to focus  on creating true value for the owner by aligning everyone’s interests, goals, and practices through a team based approach.  This early collaboration allows more informed decision making and increased productivity throughout the construction process.  Our integrated team philosophy creates shorter delivery times, lower project costs, and higher quality facilities.


One of our favored construction delivery methods is Design-Build. We find it’s easier to manage a project and control cost  when there are comprehensive start-to-finish services. As your Design-Builder, Olsen Electric is completely accountable for every phase of construction from the design and construction quality to cost and schedule. Having a single point of responsibility streamlines the entire process and reduces costs and risks for owners. Some of the many benefits of Design-Build include:

  • Easy administration
  • Single point of responsibility avoids adversarial relationships
  • Early guaranteed costs
  • Value engineered cost savings
  • Time savings for fast track construction
  • Improved risk management from fewer change orders and conflicts


At Olsen Electric, utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology provides our electricians the ability to virtually model, design, visualize, estimate, plan and build well before construction begins. From preliminary drawings to detail planning at the project level, Olsen’s design team integrates BIM technology into our process so the project team can continue to improve efficiency, construct-ability, and quality into our projects.
