Project Management

We are masterful planners. We dissect client briefs and apply our expertise to help create your vision. Each project is carefully assessed to understand your functional objectives. Within the planning phase, we undertake feasibility studies and provide a clear conceptual brief. We’re comfortable engaging with stakeholders at multiple levels to meet your project goals.

Contract Administration
& Employers Agent

Our expert Contract Administrators and Employers Agents proactively manage the relationship between employer and contractor during the construction phase. This involves clear, timely reporting to the client, management of changes and payments and ensuring effective communication across the project team.

CDM Principal Designer

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations aim to improve health and safety in construction placing legal duties on employers, designers and contractors. Barker can help clients and the professional team discharge their duties under CDM as a stand alone service or as part of a multi-disciplinary team.

What our project management clients say about us

“I am writing to you to express my appreciation of the professionalism Barker have displayed through the management of the entire project. I know it has not been straightforward as was originally intended, but with all the changes that came about during the lifetime of this project, you have dealt with it all very successfully.”

ESSEX COUNTY COUNCIL

“Thank you once again and I look forward to your input and advice on further restoration and maintenance work on the Church. It is clear that the support and recommendations that you make are recognized as extremely valuable not only by the Church but also the community and perhaps especially those who understand the complexities and difficulties of caring for ancient buildings”

ST MARY THE VIRGIN CHURCH, BALDOCK

“I would just like to say, a BIG thank you, the kitchen looks fantastic and I’m sure that the pupils will really appreciate the new space, which will be able to cater better for their needs. This project has been managed very well and run really smoothly and it’s been a pleasure working with you all.”

MARIA FIDELIS CONVENT SCHOOL

“Barker’s architects gave us very good guidance from developing the initial concept, working within our budget to selecting and dealing with the building contractors. The team was always available, extremely helpful and we never felt alone as they guided us through the process. We were very pleased with Barker and found them extremely professional at every level.”
