The opening of the CSL Plasma facilities has been very professional, to say the least, which I believe is a direct result of the professional nature of the project management team; from your office staff to the project manager, superintendent and down to your subs and suppliers. CSL’s demanding standards in quality, specification and budget adherence, when added to our required 12 week or less construction schedules, present unique challenges but never creates a condition that your firm and dedicated staff have not fully mastered.

-Scott Furr, ISPE, CDT, Sr. Engineer/Construction Manager - CSL Plasma

They met the aggressive schedule, stayed right on budget and worked with the County and World View to provide optimum flexibility and informed decision making. They have gone above and beyond in researching unique features and capabilities needed for the building. Our construction management team has been very pleased with the collaborative process and cost-conscious approach brought to the project. In summary, Barker… Contracting has performed extremely well in a very challenging environment. Their adaptability while maintaining focus on cost and schedule has been exemplary.

-C.H. Huckelberry, Pima County Administrator

Barker... assistance on a current $15 million, high profile project is enabling the County to deliver the project on a very accelerated one-year schedule. Under normal means the project would take two and a half to three years to deliver. I highly recommend Barker... Contracting for both pre-construction assistance and on-site construction to assure a successful project.

-Carter Volle, R.A., Architectural Manager- New Building Services Division Pima County Facilities Management

Each unique element of the World View project has been managed with steadfast dedication and attention to detail. Mr. Rasmussen has stayed on schedule to meet deadlines and has kept us informed throughout the process to make sure we are happy with the final product. His work has been a major factor in our company’s success, helping to bring the construction of our new state-of-the-art facility and Spaceport Tucson, in record time and under budget- a first of its kind building in Arizona.

-Jane Poynter, CEO - World View Enterprises

It was a pleasure working with Barker... Contracting on the addition to our existing ophthalmic Ambulatory Surgery Center. They did an outstanding job keeping our staff and patients safe during the construction process. Barker... was extremely professional and diligent about ensuring the project stayed on schedule and within budget; their communication, reliability and accountability surpassed our expectations. We couldn’t be happier with the results. We highly recommend Barker... for medical facility work.

-Bev M King, Practice Administrator - Fishkind Bakewell Maltzman Eye Care and Surgery Center

Barker... assistance with budget modeling, construction cost review, and input on value engineering helped the team to accomplish a design within a budget that met the owner's expectations.

-Scott Rumel, AIA Architect

I would recommend Barker... Contracting to everyone.

-Irma Perez, Facilities Director - HOPE, Inc.

I give my personal and professional recommendation for the entire Barker... organization.

Work was always done on time and on budget and I know our clients appreciated their diligence and ability to meet their needs and concerns.

Barker... was instrumental in the success of our healthcare facility renovation, from their expertise in early design meetings with our architects, making additional improvements during construction, to the cleanup and project finish. Throughout the project they were respectful of our patients and staff.  We are very happy with the end result and will definitely use them again.

-Jill Bemis, CEO - Children’s Clinics at the Square & Compass Building

Throughout the entire project, from the initial bid proposal, to the day we received final occupancy, the BMC team exemplified all the qualities that make a company great. Barker... is a great asset to Tucson.

Robert J. Wright, Owner/Manager - Living Interiors

Barker... provided us with a great experience in the deconstruction and reconstructing our restaurant. Barker... was instrumental in helping us throughout the process, and many of the phases of the work done were all done professionally and without surprise. The timing was well executed and all subcontractors were coordinated seamlessly.

-Jeff Azerksy, Partner - King Fisher

We appreciate the work that Barker... did on the church building. It certainly met and exceeded our expectations. The Barker... team went above and beyond to resolve the many construction issues and provide a usable building at an early date.
