Construction industry execs Bruce Nelson and Philip Okerlund recently formed a new project-management firm in Orange.
Nelson+Okerlund, a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business – or SDVOSB – will provide program, project and construction management services for health-care, government, commercial and entertainment developments throughout the state.
“We formed Nelson+Okerlund to utilize our comprehensive construction project knowledge to guide clients through the sometimes complicated and tenuous process of program management, project management and construction management,” said Okerlund. “Our SDVOSB designation also provides our partners with the competitive advantage in pursuing federal or other government contracts.”
Both Nelson and Okerlund hold more than 28 years of experience in the field. Prior to forming the new firm, Nelson, a former sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, served as vice president of business development for McCarthy Building Cos. Okerlund most recently served as founder and president of Okerlund Consulting & Management.
The new firm currently has five employees, with plans to double its staff by mid-2011. Nelson+Okerlund is seeking design and construction workers with strong experience in estimating, negotiation and senior project management, among other skills.
