OUR LEADERSHIP

William T. Fuller, P.E.

Principal

Bill is the founding principal of the firm and occupies a leadership role in the Structural Division. He was raised in Chapel Hill as the son of a doctor and nurse; however Bill knew at an early age that his interest was in architecture, and later, structural engineering. He received his Bachelors of Civil Engineering from North Carolina State in 1983, and followed up with a Masters of Civil Engineering at the University of Colorado in Denver in 1987. 

Bill began his career in Denver working for Beirbach Engineers, a structural engineering firm that specializes in hospital construction. He then sought to expand his structural expertise in other areas and moved to Greenville, SC in 1987 to work for CRS Sirrine in the industrial engineering field. Seven years of working in a large corporation was enough for Bill to realize his place was in a smaller consulting practice, and he subsequently went to work for Cary Engineering where he was able to work on a multitude of building types including schools, churches and industrial facilities. 

In 1997 Bill started Fuller Consulting Engineers, Inc. working from his dining room table. Since then the structural division has provided services on over 4,000 building structures in 48 states. Understanding that the science of structural engineering is principally the same for all building structures, Bill has utilized his knowledge to provide services for buildings in many industries. Bill believes the key to providing quality structural services is understanding your client’s needs, developing those relationships over the long term, and providing a team of expert engineers and designers to design a facility that exceeds their expectations.   

The company’s success has allowed Fuller Group, Inc. to hire and retain some of the industry’s top talent. Bill’s focus within the firm is to provide the training and opportunities that will allow the engineers and designers to grow professionally and meet their full potential. Bill works with the senior project managers to help them learn the ins and outs of successful project delivery. He also enjoys working with the younger engineers, helping them to improve their engineering skills. 

Bill is an active member of a number of professional organizations including the National Society of Professional Engineers and the Structural Engineers Association. Bill believes strongly in supporting those less fortunate in the local community and helping those who can’t help themselves (including our four legged friends). When Bill is not working, you are likely to find him swimming at the YMCA, hiking in the mountains with friends, or traveling with his family.
