People building for People … that’s what we do at Barnard. Whether we’re raising a dam in Alaska, constructing a reservoir in Florida, tunneling under downtown San Francisco, redirecting a river while building a complex hydropower plant in northern Manitoba, or strengthening and improving the integrity of a natural gas pipeline in a Sacramento suburb, our people arrive at our projects with a determination to do the best for their communities and be the best in the industry.
Our work also encompasses power transmission, marine, water and sewer pipeline, and environmental construction. Most often our projects include several of these elements. They always present a challenge. They affect our neighbors as well as our families. We live where we work, so we come to know our projects personally. We build for People.
Our underground experts like the fact that there’s nothing straightforward about building a tunnel. From the moment we begin exploring a proposed tunneling project, they are searching out the unique challenges and addressing how they can be overcome, safely and within budget and schedule. We have built a team that offers expertise in the field in drill and blast, hard rock TBM, and EPB construction and in work that requires slurry TBM or NATM adaptability. We build and manage projects under densely populated urban streets and remote mountainsides, in close proximity to operating systems and at the base of crashing waterfalls. Nearly all of our projects offer limited accessibility, which is just one aspect of the many challenges. In the past year, our Eisenhower Johnson Memorial Tunnels Fixed Fire Suppression System project earned regional, insurance industry and even international recognition for its safety record during construction and the safety initiative underpinning this first-of-its-kind Fire Life Safety (FLS) retrofit in the U.S. Take a look at what we’ve been working on underground.
