Barnard’s people are the reason for our 40 years of success in tackling complex and logistically challenging heavy-civil construction projects. With no debt, cash strong, and a bonding capacity of over $1 billion, our privately held company can take on complicated projects under a variety of contract types. Barnard specializes in dam, reservoir and hydropower construction and rehabilitation, power transmission and distribution, tunneling, inland marine, oil, gas, utility, and sewer and water pipeline projects. Our approach to work and commitment to Partnering allow for quick issue recognition and resolution.

Our experience in constructing hydropower projects grew naturally out of our early work in dams, penstocks, and pipelines. Owners count on us to manage and construct power plants that are going to offer their customers and communities more clean power than ever before. We have worked in challenging environments, above and below ground, in all types of terrain and weather, under all types of contracts, including design-assist. Our teams are accustomed to the strict regulatory oversight and environmental constraints associated with hydropower production. These projects are always multi-faceted; we like that.  We are headquartered in Bozeman, Montana, but build throughout North America and beyond. See what we can do; visit
