OUR BACKGROUND

Tacoma Engineers has its roots in Guelph, Ontario where Jack Tacoma opened a sole proprietorship in 1980. In 1986, Tacoma Steckley & Associates was formed to expand the company’s capabilities and scope of services. Since 2004 we’ve been known as Tacoma Engineers, to best reflect our commitment to our core competency, structural engineering. Our Barrie office has served local and central Ontario clients since 2002, and our Waterloo office was opened in 2018 to better serve our KW clients.

Our enduring background is built with an extraordinarily stable team of professionals, focused exclusively on structural engineering. This has enabled our firm to develop a notable depth of expertise in many facets of structural engineering.

The firm has grown steadily to a staff of over fifty people, including professional engineers, project managers, technologists and administration staff. We have grown not for growth’s sake, but to meet the demand of our long-time and referral clients in a low profile manner, yet with the professionalism and determination to provide engineering and design solutions with the highest degree of quality.
