Giving back

At Barr, we’re grateful for the support of the communities in which we live and work. We give back to them through volunteer efforts that range from collecting litter along highways to mentoring future engineers and scientists to building houses for Habitat for Humanity.

Barr also contributes at least two percent of its net annual profits to higher-education institutions and charitable organizations. We support higher learning through donations and scholarships, including several that honor former employees in recognition of their contributions to the company.

The American Council of Engineering Companies of Minnesota named Barr its 2019 Firm of the Year in recognition of our “significant contribution to the advancement of the association and the consulting engineering profession.” Our employees serve on ACEC committees and its board of directors, and we host and participate in its Women in Engineering professional development events. 

Please see our environmental policy and charitable giving report.
