We are construction managers, and have been since 1927, when Joseph R. Barr founded Barr & Barr as a construction company focused on delivering quality work with uncompromised service. Joseph R. Barr honed his construction skills and business acumen working first as a young engineer surveying land for the railroads in the American West and eventually mastering large-scale projects for New York Central railroad in Manhattan.
Through this experience he developed an eye for detail, a talent for working on complex projects, and a simple philosophy — treat every client like a true partner and every project as if it were your own. From foundational beginnings to creating a unique vision in the industry, Joseph R. Barr quickly established a reputation not only as a consummate builder, but a trusted advisor and a man of principle. Today, these guiding principles endure as our cornerstone philosophy for the way Barr & Barr conducts business.
