“It’s great to know that I have the opportunity to work on and build projects that ultimately improve the lives of others.”

Scott Olson joined the Rhodey Construction team in 2022. With nearly 30 years of experience in construction management, his primary specialization is in Healthcare Construction, overseeing several complex developments, including hospital renovations, additions, equipment installations, new buildings and more.

As Senior Project Manager, Scott takes a proactive approach to any job – working directly with clients to plan and organize projects and lead them toward success. From budget creation and negotiating agreements and contracts to running everyday operations and managing team members, he has the necessary skillset to adapt to each project and fulfill its needs. He also enjoys the teamwork aspect of the job, working alongside others at Rhodey to accomplish lasting results. Scott graduated with a bachelor’s degree in construction management and a minor in business administration from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. In addition to being a Missouri Society for Healthcare Engineering (MOSHE) and Southern Illinois Chapter for Healthcare Engineering (SICHE) Member, he has also received OSHA 30- and 10-hour training and was an ASHE Certified HealthCare Constructor. Outside of work, Scott enjoys a healthy work/life balance – especially if it includes a beach – and spending quality time with his wife and two daughters.
