  • “It was a pleasure to work with H.E. Barnes who were very quick to bring their knowledge to the project and become a fully integrated part of the team. Their intelligent proposals, attention to detail and constructive solution-finding approach was really appreciated. Carrying this through to the works on site, we were able to realise a scheme with exposed servicing and a high level of coordination with structural elements, and achieve a building that we hope has exceeded our client’s aesthetic and functional expectations.”

    Joni Steiner of 00 Architecture commenting on the Manor Works Project Collaboration
  • “We use H.E. Barnes for general electrical work, emergency calls and fire systems testing. They are responsive to our requirements and provide a good all round friendly efficient service.”

    Les Griffiths of Frogson Waste Management LTD
  • “We have been using H.E. Barnes for our Fixed Wire Inspections, PAT Testing program, light tube changes and reactive emergencies on our stores for over 15 years. Alongside this, H.E Barnes refit shops across the country, which include any franchised additional services used by Blakemore Retail within the building.

    I have always found both engineers on site and office staff to be highly professional and competent. I would have no hesitation in recommending H.E. Barnes as the one stop shop contractor.”
