Who We Are
NELSON is a global architecture, design, and consulting services firm. For nearly 40 years, NELSON has been providing our clients with strategic and creative solutions that positively impact their ideas, goals, objectives and environments. Our integrated service delivery network includes Teammates in 35 locations, which allows us to work effectively with clients on projects across the country and around the world.
NELSON's mantra is Focused on Creation, Passion to Deliver. In everything we do, we are committed to providing exceptional services and delivering outstanding results. We value equally both design and delivery, taking our cues on what to emphasize from what our clients value. Above all, we view our clients as partners and we are committed to our combined success.
Looking to the future, we're excited to discover new ways to bring value to our clients while providing anytime/anywhere service in the most efficient, effective and beneficial ways possible.
Core to NELSON’s mission is our commitment to partnering with the communities where we work and live to sustain them, as well as creating positive change through civic engagement and socially responsible behavior.
Every company has its own culture. At NELSON, ours rewards the entrepreneurial spirit that was present when we first opened our doors nearly 40 years ago and it also includes the best aspects of the 17 firms with whom we have joined operations during the past 13 years.
NELSON was founded in 1977 by John Nelson, Sr. as an interior design firm. Now in its second generation of ownership and leadership under Chairman & CEO John “Ozzie” Nelson Jr., NELSON has experienced tremendous growth in revenue, Teammates, and its national and global presence. It has evolved from its roots into a global integrated services firm focused on design, architecture, and strategic consulting.
We aim to greatly enhance the long-term effectiveness of our clients' businesses through innovative design solutions, consulting services and superb delivery.
