Lakeside Lodge

"In September of 2000 I hired GL Olson, Inc to completely rebuild my 4 story 100 year old Victorian home at Chautauqua N.Y. Over the next 9 months while I lived and worked in California he and his associates did an EXCELLENT job on this project. The important things to me doing the work long distance was to work with someone that I could communicate with, had confidence in and that I could trust to do great work. On all accounts GL Olson met my expectations or exceeded them. I was especially impressed with the craftsmen that worked on my home. The work was done on time and with detailed billing. When the job was completed I was very excited but now 10 years later I realize even more what an extraordinary job GL Olson did. I have not had a major problem and with any minor problem GL Olson has fixed it. If I build again I would only hire GL Olson.” -Tara VanDerveer

Aversa Home

Four years ago we decided to build a new home adjacent to Moon Brook Country Club just off the #12 Fairway. Picking G.L. Olson as the builder was the best decision we ever made. Most people say that when a husband and wife build a home it is a very trying experience. Our experience was fun, exciting and a joy. Every day decisions had to be made and, everyday, the staff at G.l. Olson provided the options and their recommendations and we made the choices. Our home is mostly cedar inside with a 30 foot ceiling. The workmanship, skill and finished product are a work of art. We would highly recommend G.L. Olson to anyone building a home or commercial property. We would be happy to have you see our home if you would like." -Gene & Ann Aversa


"G.L. Olson built a fabulous home for us on the Chautauqua lake front. Their attention to detail resulted in a terrific outcome. Their experience both with commercial and high end residential buildings allows them to deftly handle the most complex projects." -Anne Odland


"G.L. Olson was a pleasure to work with. The project was demanding and complex in both execution and time line and G.L. Olson brought professionalism, organization, appropriate scale and timely delivery. All aspects of the building were highly coordinated in an integrated design and the Olson Company was cooperative, flexible and creative in working to coordinate all with the architect.” -Ted First

The Everett Jewish Life Center

"Our project turned out beautifully and we were very impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail provided by everyone we dealt with. The Center opened in June 2009. The integrity of the building has been superb considering the very harsh winters in Chautauqua County. We would highly recommend Olson Construction to others." -Richard Moschel Treasurer Everett Jewish Life Center

Southern Chautauqua Federal Credit Union

"Our first experience with GL Olson construction was the major renovation of our main branch in 2005. Their standard of professionalism and quality of work built a level of trust where we didn’t hesitate to partner with them again in 2010 for the construction of another branch in Cherry Creek. This project was bid on by several general contractors and it was a great relief to find that GL Olson would be our partner once again. Having a reliable and strong general contractor like GL Olson made the construction phase of the project virtually anxiety free.” -John Felton CEO, Southern Chautauqua Federal Credit Union

Chautauqua Lake Estates

" I have hired Olson to do jobs for over 30 years in all phases of construction, from building new condo buildings in 1981 to the repairs from the tornado in 2010, to the present time. I have been extremely happy with all of their work and will continue to hire them for years to come.” -Paul Mathews

Woodlands and Chedwell Addition

"Our family is very pleased with the construction of one home and the remodeling of another, both completed by G. L. Olson, Inc. The quality of its work and the dedication of its staff are extremely high. The commitment the Olson team makes to its clients during the work, and in follow-up maintenance and trouble-shooting is outstanding. Occasionally, we have an issue which needs the attention of a craftsman and the team always makes sure our home continues to meet our expectations. We've completed remodels in various parts of the country, and G. L. Olson provides the highest level of quality and service we have experienced." -Marty and Sandy Coyle
