Garner Story

The roots of Garner Construction stretch back  to 1972 when Jackie Garner joined the International Operating Engineer’s Local 302 to become a crane operator. She honed her skills operating cranes on jobs like the West Seattle Bridge, the Satsop Nucelar Site, and the Renton Sewer Treatment Plant.  In 1991, she founded Garner Construction Inc. to provide General Contractors with a reliable source for Crane Services and the highest skilled Tower Crane operators and riggers possible.  Garner’s first job was with M.A. Mortenson on the $70 Million Physics & Astronomy Building at the University of Washington. Since then, the jobs have grown, and so have we.  Today, Garner maintains a full time staff of 42 operators and riggers, and serves clients across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana,Tennesse and Hawaii. We have completed over 540 jobs to date.


Garner has provided tower crane operators and riggers for more than 28 years. We have the experience necessary to expertly tackle every job and every situation.
