See what our surveying & asset 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

“Just wanted to say how happy we are with the two building reports we recently received from Barker. Unfortunately, the first property fell through, but we are now safely installed in our new home, working through some of the issues that your report had pointed out as ‘essential’. We hope we will not be moving house in the near future, but if we do, we will definitely be returning to Barker.”

PRIVATE CLIENT, Kelsale

“From my initial interest through to the planning stage, the service that I received has been excellent. Planning application and liaison between builders, suppliers Essex Local Authority has been dealt with smoothly and efficiently. I am delighted with the build and want you to convey my sincere thanks for all hard work and effort in making this project as straightforward as possible.”

CRESSING PRIMARY SCHOOL

“Barker have been able to secure 3 large capital bids for us which they have project managed very professionally to conclusion. We are also using them as architects/planners/project managers on a Local Authority led expansion build over the next two years. I find them professional, approachable and very thorough. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”

CHEAM PARK FARM SCHOOL, SUTTON, JULIE PENNEFATHER
