The only thing more important than great ideas is the ability
to put them into action and drive them to completion.
That’s what we do.

Leaders in Project Management

Shiels Obletz Johnsen, Inc. (SOJ) is a leading project management consultancy based in the Pacific Northwest. Over the last 40 years, our offices in Portland and Seattle have successfully guided numerous public and private development projects from concept through construction. Our reputation as problem solvers for large-scale urban development projects that are challenging, controversial or involve numerous, often competing interests was earned through careful attention to the needs of our clients and the thoughtful integration of every stakeholder involved.

SOJ is 74% women- and minority-owned, and we are COBID-certified in the State of Oregon as a Minority Business Enterprise (#12999).
