Barker shortlisted for MAT Excellence Awards

Barker has been shortlisted for the MAT Excellence Awards in the Trust Collaboration Award category. We are proud to present and be acknowledged for our achievements in partnership with E-ACT.  The MAT Excellence Awards are all about celebrating excellence and impact in school trusts.

Barker’s collaboration with E-ACT has been guided by a clear set of aims and objectives aligned with concordant business drivers, creating a foundation for our successful partnership.  The success of our network collaboration, spread across 28 schools nationwide, is a testament to our ability to administer programs centrally while maintaining critical local engagement. With E-ACT, our strategic partnership evolved from Energy Dashboards to multimillion-pound energy efficiency schemes, accelerating E-ACT’s decarbonisation journey. Our collaboration reflects mutual dedication to positive change and innovation in education.

A highlight of this partnership is the fact that building surveyors, engineers, designers and programme co-ordinators from all four Barker offices in London, Braintree, Cambridge and Birmingham were involved on E-ACT projects. A collaborative effort built on trust between Barker and E-ACT resulted in the team being well equipped to adapt to change and take swift decisions. This enabled projects to maintain momentum and be delivered on time and on budget.

Stuart White, Managing Partner at Barker said, ‘I am delighted at our nomination. This is a fantastic acknowledgment of the commitment of our team and clients to positively impact learners, staff, and the community’.
