Storage Tank Industry Veteran Retires from Tank Consulting Company

Steve Meier has retired from Tank Industry Consultants (TIC) (Indianapolis, Indiana, USA), where he served as managing principal. While Meier is retiring from day-to-day operations, he remains on the company’s board of directors and will consult on special projects.

Meier is a 41-year veteran of the storage tank industry and has held many leadership roles in the American Water Works Association (AWWA) (Denver, Colorado, USA), including as a member of AWWA Standards Council and as chair of the AWWA Standards Committee on Steel and Composite Water Storage Tanks.

He has served as structural engineer in responsible charge for numerous water storage and granular and cryogenic storage tank construction projects, as well as seismic design and retrofit projects.

According to the company, Meier’s design and seismic expertise is “especially invaluable” during the evaluation, design, specification, and construction phases of tank construction and seismic retrofits. 

Prior to joining TIC, Meier spent more than 22 years with one of the leading U.S. tank and vessel constructors.  His professional emphasis during this time was on steel tanks, prestressed concrete containments, composite elevated tanks, cryogenic structures, structural steel frames, and abnormal loading conditions due to blast, projectile impact, thermal gradients, and seismic events.
