years, we have earned more than 500 construction, design, sustainability and organization awards," the company says. "We have set
records and shaped city skylines nationwide, including the iconic
Fountain Place in Dallas, designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei
and Atlantic Center, designed by Phillip Johnson."
The company also has won the respect, trust and business of its
customers. "More than 90 percent of our projects serve repeat clients
who complete more than 10 projects with us on average," Beck says.
"Above all, Beck sustains long-term client relationships because
of our dedication and performance," the company continues, noting
that it responds in real time when problems occur.
"We remain focused on safely delivering the owner's vision and
architectural design intent on time and within budget," it says.
"Our success doing so has earned us [a] sterling reputation for
safety and quality."
Beck excels in architecture. "Some clients call on us to bring their
vision to life, others turn to us for creative inspiration," it says. "Regardless, our architecture group presents thoughtful designs that not
only enhance community landscapes, but also user experiences."
The company adds it has proven its talents with the awards it
has won and the projects it has finished. "Beck Architecture has
been named by the Dallas AIA as architecture firm of the year, and
we served as co-architect of record for the iconic Nasher Sculpture
Center with Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano in our
hometown of Dallas," Beck says.

Leading the Way
Beck says it strives to be a leader by developing and advancing
technology. "That's because technology helps us increase the availability of information, reduce risk, clarify scope, improve quality and
reduce cost for design and construction projects," it says.
The company showed these abilities on the Renzo Piano Pavilion
at the Kimbell Art Museum project in Fort Worth, Texas. "One of the
most challenging aspects of the project was installing the architectural concrete used to create the remarkably pristine walls and
exterior façade," Beck says.
"When other installation methods proved unsatisfactory, Beck
used 3-D modeling to design and adapt custom concrete forms that
were ultimately successful in producing the desired result," it says.
"Technology was also used on the project to coordinate an international project team, capture and communicate design changes, and
verify proper field installation for designers across the Atlantic."
