Electrical engineering

Barr’s electrical engineers understand the complexities of the electric utility industry. Based on our years of experience and in-depth engineering knowledge from supporting transmission and distribution projects, we design high voltage substations, including site development, foundations and structures, physical design, protection and control and communication systems, as well as transmission lines for electric utilities and renewable energy developers.

For distribution and infrastructure projects, our engineers can step in at any phase of the project to design power distribution and control systems that meet the needs of our clients’ industrial, commercial, municipal, utility, manufacturing, and mining facilities. We design electrical power infrastructure, medium to low voltage motor and instrument control systems, energy-efficient interior and exterior lighting, grounding, in-plant power distribution and communication systems, emergency power—and more. 

From process automation to discrete control, Barr’s electrical engineers design, configure, and implement control systems. We help clients navigate the entire lifecycle of an electrical engineering project, including project planning, system design, programming, control room and operator displays, data historians, industrial networks, simulation, system integration, and site commissioning.
