BOC Acknowledges a true Industry Giant: Talin Espinoza

It’s often said that a person’s true character is revealed by what they do when no one is watching. Well, BuildOUT California would like to acknowledge an INDUSTRY GIANT in our midst who has demonstrated her visionary leadership, remarkable tenacity and ability to move mountains in “full view” of our collective AEC communities throughout California, the West Coast and the United States: Ms. Talin Espinoza.


As an Ally to BuildOUT California, she has defined the term of meaningful engagement. Not only did she spearhead the process for Flatiron to become one of the first Heavy Civil firms to publicly support our mission/vision to empower LGBT/Allied businesses, but she has been with us every step of the way, assisting us in developing relevant programming, making introductions to those ‘hard to reach’ industry leaders, and including LGBT/Allied firms in Flatiron’s pursuits across the US.


Most recently, the leadership that Talin exhibited in the planning and production of the ‘Women in Heavy Civil’ events at the 68th Annual Beavers Conference was simply outstanding (Beavers is a social, honorary organization formed, organized, and managed by the construction companies and individuals who are or have engaged in heavy engineering construction) and was nothing short of amazing! The impact of the 2024 “Women in Heavy Civil” events reverberated throughout the construction industry as it brought to the forefront the remarkable contributions women have made/are making in heavy civil construction. Of course, she will say that she was just one of many people who worked diligently to produce these events, but her fingerprints were on all aspects of this very powerful industry event.


Professionally, Talin is Vice-President of Business Development, leading Flatiron’s business development efforts for the Southern California, Northern California, Washington, and Colorado Districts. She has 20 years of experience in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry and she brings to Flatiron her knowledge, business acumen, and trusted industry contacts — but most importantly she brings her enthusiasm for long term success through sustained relationships with clients, industry leaders, and community stakeholders.


For these, and so many other reasons, Talin Espinoza is a true INDUSTRY GIANT!
