About

Let us Introduce ourselves

Barrie Beard Ltd was established in 1978 by Mr Barrie Beard, and has a board of six Directors who are committed in achieving the highest standards of corporate governance. Management review meetings are held regularly to focus on safety, performance, people and strategy. We currently employ 100 employees and have an annual turnover of approximately £15 million.

Barrie Beard Ltd is dedicated in building strong and successful working relationships with all of our clients. Senior Management and Contract Managers strive to deliver high quality design, installation and service, both locally and nationally. The company’s inherent philosophy is to take a meticulous approach to each and every contract ensuring continued commitment and support to our clients.

Predominantly, Barrie Beard Ltd works in the commercial market, most contracts are Design and Build and we are therefore  responsible for all the design calculations, drawings, ‘as installed’ drawings and O&M manuals which are all completed by our in-house design team.  We offer services in; LED Energy Saving & Lighting Design, Drawing Design (BIM & AutoCAD) and Electrical Design (Hevacomp and Amtech). In addition to this we have a small works department catering for local domestic contracts and a sales counter to serve independent contractors and the wider local community.

We have always taken on and trained our own apprentices, training in excess of 150 apprentices in the last 39 years. We are proud to  have a strong apprenticeship policy which reinforces our high-skills base, and that, in turn, has expanded the company’s  reputation for quality throughout the country. We provide continual training for our employees including SMSTS & SSSTS  (Site Manager/Supervisor Safety Training Schemes).

We have continuing contracts nationwide with the CAPITA Group, DHL Supply Chain, together with local health authorities and several  District, City and County Councils. We have also worked in direct partnership with Network Rail, completing station improvements nationally.

We are members of the NICEIC and always endeavour to maintain the highest possible standards. We are ISO 9001 registered and a CHAS Accredited Contractor. We have SMAS Worksafe Contractor Membership and Constructionline accreditation and have recently  been successfully audited by Achilles and now hold the RISQS Accreditation.
