The company began with Mr Barrie Beard starting on his own in 1978, after being in partnership since 1968.  Barrie’s wife Jackie has always been involved in the business and their three sons Warren, Russell and Lyndon are all now directors.  John Barnes joined the company as an apprentice in 1978 and is now a director.  Wayne Bedford, also a director, joined the company in 1980 and now runs contracting  with Barrie and Russell.  We currently employ 85 regular employees but this can increase to over 100 if we have a large contract.

We have always taken on and trained our own apprentices, training in excess of 100 apprentices in the last 20 years.  These apprentices have applied and diversified their skills and that has enabled us to expand our business.  We are proud to have a strong apprenticeship policy, building on our high skills base that has boosted the company’s reputation for quality throughout the country.

Predominantly, Barrie Beard Ltd works in the commercial market, also having a small works department catering for local domestic contracts. In addition to this we have a  sales counter which serves independent contractors and the wider local community.

Most of the contracts are Design and Build and we are therefore responsible for all the design calculations, drawings, ‘as installed’ drawings and O&M manuals.

We have ongoing work for local health authorities, Worcestershire County Council, Bromsgrove District, Birmingham City Council and numerous other clients with whom over the years we have built strong working relationships.

We strive to give the best possible service to our customers, delivering high quality work on time and at competitive prices, for which we have an excellent reputation.

We are members of the NICEIC and always endeavour to maintain the highest possible standards.  We are ISO9001 registered and a CHAS Accredited Contractor.  We are MCS Approved Installers for solar photovoltaic (PV) installations and members of REAL (Renewable Energy Assurance Listed) and also have SMAS Worksafe contract of membership.  We hold professional indemnity insurance of £5m and all other relevant insurances.mmercial electrician electrical contractor birmingham west midlands worcester bromsgrove redditch
