SERVICES

We’ve built a reputation for delivering the highest quality construction
services. Click below to learn more about our capabilities and how we can bring your project to life.

Program Management

Barr & Barr provides a wide range of services that support the capital programs of our clients. Our personnel leverage years of experience and expertise to support clients from capital planning through occupancy. Implementing a comprehensive construction management strategy, we integrate all components of the construction process including: planning and design, budgeting, scheduling, design analysis/contractibility, risk management, procurement, construction, commissioning and project closeout.

Preconstruction

Preconstruction is the interlocking set of services by which we, in close partnership with the client and the architect, will build your project virtually first, employing state-of-the-art technology, in all of its material and logistical detail. Ultimately, our work together during preconstruction ensures that, upon completion, your building is everything you want and need it to be – while honoring your budget and schedule.

Construction

As the project progresses, we apply knowledge gained during preconstruction to our overall construction services. Our approach is to control the entire process as an extension of the client’s in-house management team by providing guidance and leadership in all activities required for the project’s successful completion and continued use.

BIM/3D Logistics

One of our key strengths has always been the ability
to shorten the production schedule and expose
hidden and potentially costly building conflicts.
Using Building information Modeling (BIM), we can
review constructability and fully coordinate the project by generating a 3D model of the
Architectural, Structural and all MEP systems.

LEED/Sustainability

While many construction managers are averse to new materials and construction techniques, we feel it is our duty to be committed to advancing sustainability in every project we undertake. And the work of fulfilling our responsibility to the environment absolutely begins at the earliest stages of design in preconstruction. and all MEP services.

Commissioning

As consummate builders with a keen focus on
integrity and the bottom line, we strongly recommend utilizing commissioning agents throughout
all phases of our projects. With both technology
and energy conservation becoming major factors in
all of our projects, requirement, commissioning agents will help to ensure continuity from the design phase through to post-acceptance.

NO FIRM IS MORE SERIOUS ABOUT SAFETYAND OUR TRACK RECORD SHOWS IT

SAFETY

Safety is our number one priority on a work site. We tolerate no compromises when it comes to matters of health and injury, and that’s why we go to great lengths to ensure a clean, safe construction site for our workers, adjacent property owners and the general public. Our EMR rating is well below the industry standard of 1.0.

We’ve set the industry standard.

There’s a reason why OSHA has repeatedly chosen to collaborate with us — our EMR rating of .84 is well below the construction industry average. Through collaboration we’ve developed a groundbreaking cooperative relationship between contractors and OSHA, instead of a traditionally adversarial one. With this approach, all parties review and discuss issues before they become problematic, resulting in a more productive process and relationship.

A site-specific health
and safety plan.

For every project we also develop a site-specific plan designed to expand on the procedures outlined in our safety manual. We address fall protection, excavations, scaffolding, personal protective equipment and emergency procedures as they pertain to each different work site.

Our safety manual is based on over 90 years of experience.

With such an extensive history, our safety manual is like none other in the industry. Our manual focuses on not only the prevention of injuries and illness, but also of damage to property and the environment. For example, we require 100% eye protection and fall protection for all employees working six or more feet above a lower level, regardless of trade.

Weekly safety meetings.

To ensure that our entire project is compliant with our safety procedures, all subcontractors are required to attend weekly safety meetings and to hold their own weekly toolbox safety meetings with their on-site personnel.

Universal safety training.

Our safety director is also a former OSHA inspector, so we know the full spectrum of safety compliance needs. He is also authorized to teach OSHA’s mandatory safety courses. All Barr & Barr personnel assigned to a job site must complete at a minimum the 10-hour safety course, with all of our superintendents completing the 30-hour course. Additionally, we offer our subcontractors and client’s personnel the 10-hour safety course free of charge.

Periodic safety inspections.

Throughout our project, our safety director conducts periodic safety inspections to ensure that every job site adheres to our stringent procedures and guidelines. Additionally, as a cross-check, inspections by our insurance agent are conducted throughout construction.
