Awards and Recognition

BAR's projects have been featured in a variety of print and online news media, representing innovative, cost-efficient and successful best practices. Our design ability has been recognized with over 180 design awards for projects of all types and sizes, including the AIA California Council Firm of the Year award in 2000. However, the highest measure of our success is the support and recognition we receive from our numerous repeat clients and the satisfied people who inhabit our buildings.
