In 1975, Tim moved to Montana with the dream of starting his own construction company. He had $1,000, two shovels, a pick, and all of his worldly possessions in the cab of his pickup truck. His grandmother loaned him $3,500 to cover his first bond on a $17,000 project. Since then, he’s never looked back. Today, as Chairman, Tim continues to be involved with all major decisions in an organization that focuses on unique and demanding projects. Barnard remains debt-free and has a bonding capacity that exceeds $2 billion.
