About Us

Serving with integrity since 1976.



BAR Construction Company began February 4, 1976 by John Bonitz, Boyd Allred, and Ed Robinson, (thus how we became known as ‘BAR’ Construction). The company grew and was sold to businessman Dick Howard who realized that young employee Glenn Hodges, could be ideal to carry on the company legacy. In 1999 after quickly excelling at BAR, Glenn purchased the organization. Founder, Boyd Allred had a motto: “never lie to a client” and that continued through the history of the company to be one of Glenn’s favorite ‘words to live by’ and he continues to promote that motto today.

Thank you for the photo book from Phase 1 here at Barber Park. We’ve had over 26,000 folks use the Spray Ground this summer and the picnic shelters set a record for revenue from rentals. Everyone has been very pleased with the work done by BAR for us. Jeff, Mark, and all of the guys who worked on the project did a wonderful job that will serve the City for many years to come.”
