OUR STORY

In 1995, Barker Lemar Engineering began providing dedicated consulting services to solid waste management facilities throughout Iowa. As our firm’s reputation spread, our market share in the industry exploded. With a strong and diverse client base, we expanded our service offering- adding specialty services, such as ecological, technology, and petroleum solutions to meet the needs of existing and underserviced clients. As a complement to our petroleum compliance offering, Barker Lemar Petroleum Services opened its doors in 2007, bringing in a dedicated team of underground storage tank professionals to service Iowa’s fuel dispensing/storage sector. Today, Barker Lemar’s specialized teams service a variety of industries: including solid waste, petroleum, industrial, air and water quality, ecological and technology. Our footprint includes the entire state of Iowa, as well as eastern Nebraska and western Illinois. We are proud of our growth, as it speaks to the incredible talent of our staff.

Growth through reputation is the very best kind. Barker Lemar has been awarded a Top Workplace designation by the Des Moines Register, and our culture is the foundation of everything we do. Without an enthusiastic, talented staff – supporting a culture that merits this distinction is impossible.
