where it began
Stuart Barr, founder and director of StuartBarr CDR, initially trained in cabinet making. For Stuart, joinery represented precision and attention to detail, characteristics which were to become the cornerstones of his future companies. In 2002, after learning the construction industry from grass roots, Stuart set up his own company. Within a year a contract with the National Trust was secured… which then led to another. Soon the company was on the National Trust top 50 suppliers listing, breaking the ground for larger contracts with the Dorneywood and Chequers Trust, as well as larger private residential clients across the region. Heritage projects, eco-builds, and varied commercial contracts have all been an integral part of the organisation’s growth and diversification. Alongside a passion for quality, they have made StuartBarr CDR the company it is today.
