Dean Olson

Senior Associate, QA/QC Specialist, Landscape Architect

As an accomplished landscape architect with three decades in the profession and experience working around the country, Dean is Walker Macy’s Quality Assurance/Quality Control specialist. “My role as Walker Macy’s Quality Control Manager is a balancing act between design creativity and project constructability. I’m a gatekeeper for the firm and mentor to the staff. My position within the firm offers diversity, experimentation and decision making on a daily basis. Most importantly, I have the opportunity to touch all phases of a project and the good fortune of sharing what I’ve learned with future generations of this unique profession.” Dean reviews all Walker Macy projects, providing mentorship for our design team and significant depth to the firm’s technical capacity and documentation abilities.
