Our Story

Read More

Barr & Barr is one of the Northeast’s elite construction corporations, recognized by Engineering News Record as one of the nation’s top 400. The company has done $1.5 billion in preconstruction work alone over the last three years and averages $300 million in revenues annually. A specialist since the 1950s in academic, healthcare, research and historic restoration projects, Barr & Barr is also known for its team approach and ingenuity in problem solving. And the early passion for building bold has been joined by a passion for building to the numbers:

•    95% accuracy in cost estimating
•    85% repeat business rate
•    85-year track record of successful project completion
•    100% commitment to minimizing owners’ risk

The third generation of the Barr family now leads the company, more than 150 employees, which still rests on the one-time railroad surveyor’s cornerstone of integrity. That means an absolute commitment to hands-on project involvement by top executives and a core philosophy of personal service to all owners and architects. Joseph R. Barr embraced this integrity for his firm because, like everything else he built, he built it to last.
