Building Teams of People

A message from William Tanner, PE, CEO


My career has seen many different types of construction: bridges, roads, freeways, pipelines and pre-engineered metal buildings. It is a wide ranging list, and in all of it, I have grown to appreciate our greatest resource. People. People make projects. I learned this early in my career on the Northridge Earthquake transportation projects. In a matter of months, major multi-million dollar projects were designed and built. It was a testament to team work and ingenuity. I had the good fortune to be part of those teams, and it was then that the importance of people working together in an “anything is possible” environment took hold. People coming together to solve challenges is a recipe for success.

I enjoy building things, including building teams of people to take on challenging projects. The creation of Tanner Pacific represents a culmination of my experiences and my passion for bringing together talented professionals eager to build a better future.


At Tanner Pacific we have built a team of professionals that embrace Collaboration, Responsibility, Technical Proficiency and Respect. 


Tanner Pacific includes a team of experts made up of licensed Professional Engineers, Project Engineers and Inspectors with a passion for construction. We pride ourselves on working together with all stakeholders in a project by creating a comfortable, open environment where all possible solutions can be vetted through discussion and engineering evaluation.
