I have known and worked with Dave Olson for more than 20 years. In his specialty there is not a better engineer in this state. On top of that he is just a great guy to be around. If you need his services you would be making a mistake if you do not hire him.

I have had the opportunity to retain David R. Olson of Integrated Mechanical Systems, Inc. on multiple occasions and request his help in the investigation and analysis of complex, mechanical engineering issues. Dave has provided invaluable assistance in breaking down complicated issues and applying no-nonsense , practical expertise to arrive at well-reasoned analyses.

I am pleased to write a letter of recommendation for David Olson, PE. I met David Olson through a mechanical contractor client. I worked with him on two construction defect cases. The first involved complex issues for a commercial indoor shooting range. The second was a residential project where he designed a solution and also testified as an expert witness in arbitration.
In both cases, he was a problem solver. We were able to resolve the first case in large part due to his design solution. While the issues in the residential construction defect case were limited in scope, he provided construction solutions, which were implemented by my clients, and he testified in arbitration.
He is on my “short list” for mechanical engineering experts.

Dave Olson has been my go-to engineer for anything mechanical for 15 years. He is always the smartest person in the room. I will always remember that, the first time I met him, he was the first engineer in the group to grab a ladder and stick his head into the ceiling to get dirty and figure out what the heck was going on. He is brilliant but approachable and knows how to explain matters clearly to a lay person, which allows me to rely on him to work directly with my clients. He is also well-connected in the industry and has been a lifesaver more than once when I needed to find reliable experts to certain systems, even plumbers. I highly recommend Dave and his company for any engineering services they provide.

Dave, I just wanted to reiterate what a PHENOMENAL job you did preparing and presenting the information today. I’m sure Pete (Hagen) & Doug (McLain) & Larry (Orleans) and the rest of the crew were blown away by your thoroughness and knowledge of systems and proactive/innovative approach to this tangle of problems the Arts Building presents.
I really hope we get some good feedback from AHEC (and the users) and are able to charge ahead quickly and efficiently on this.
I’ll be honest, I’m unaccustomed to seeing this kind of effort from ANY mechanical consultants I’ve ever worked with.
Hopefully we’ll have a good, long run at Auraria
Thanks again for all your hard work.

I am pleased to recommend Dave as a trustworthy professional partner, and a top notch mechanical engineer. He is extremely knowledgeable about a diverse array of HVAC and plumbing systems, both historic systems and cutting edge technology, and energy efficient solutions. We have worked together on many successful projects over the past several years. Dave and his staff at Integrated Mechanical Systems have proven themselves to be detail oriented, professional, and thorough on every project. I hope to have them on our design team for many projects in the future.

Very knowledgeable about all facets of a complete mechanical system and is very receptive to value engineering ideas.

As I said on p1 of the attached, I’m VERY impressed with this. Comprehensive, clear, well-presented…
Thank you for all your work on this. You break the mold for every M.E. I have EVER worked with…

Dave, Just a side note. I am a member of Engineers without Borders and on two recent meetings with Board members, I have come to know Dave Robinson of BCER. I asked him if he knew you and (not a shock to me), he said you were one of a few mechanical engineers that he looked up to professionally and physically. He’s tall but not like you and he had nothing but great things to say about your firm and practice.
