This flourishing small city in southeastern Michigan offers attractions, activities, and adventures for just about anyone within its 28 square miles. A quintessential college town, Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan and is right next door to Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti. Ann Arbor is repeatedly recognized as one of America’s best places to live due to its lively restaurant scene, world-class arts and culture, walkable downtown, and proximity to metropolitan Detroit.
Since opening our Ann Arbor office 25 years ago, Barr has built a thriving practice integrating engineering and environmental expertise for clients across Michigan and throughout the Midwest. We’ve continued to expand by hiring industry experts and acquired King & MacGregor Environmental, Inc. in 2020, enhancing our environmental capabilities and natural resources consulting services. To better serve our Michigan clients, Barr’s Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids offices also offer services as Barr Engineering Michigan LLC.
Barr’s Ann Arbor staff serve a wide range of industries, including the power, fuels, and manufacturing sectors. We’re active members of professional organizations such as the Michigan Manufacturers Association, Air & Waste Management Association, Michigan Wetlands Association, Michigan Municipal Electrical Association, Michigan Chemistry Council, Great Lakes Renewable Energy Association, Michigan Section of the American Water Works Association, Engineering Society of Detroit, and Michigan Association of Environmental Professionals. Our local team of engineers and scientists has extensive experience in natural resources management; planning, permitting, and design for power generation and transmission projects; and the remediation and mitigation of known and emerging contaminants.
