40 Years of Engineering Better Environments  

On October 15th, the OLA team celebrated the relationships that contributed to the firm's last 40 years.

Food and beverages featured local vendors and clients, an OLA timeline highlighted significant events during the firm's history, and our very own Christine Locke sang Adele's Rolling in the Deep with the musicians.

Among the 150+ guests were founder Thomas O'Dea, who flew up from Florida and County Legislator Michael Smith, who arrived with a proclamation on behalf of County Executive, Robert Astorino.

Thank you to those of you who were able to join us. It was a pleasure celebrating with you! If you were unable to make it, you can view some of the night's events here: OLA 40th Anniversary Photos
