Excellence and Vision Awards Given at Customer Appreciation Event

Sponsored by Businesswire

announced today the honorees receiving the company’s
Excellence and Vision Awards, based on their involvement and advancement
in the future of preconstruction technology.

The Excellence award is presented to an individual in the construction
industry who embodies the innovator’s spirit – someone who has sought
out new ways of tackling preconstruction problems, provided solutions to
challenges, and continues to bring fresh ideas to the industry. This
year, Beck Technology has honored Andy Gerlach with the award.

Gerlach is a preconstruction professional based in Newport Beach,
California, and has collaborated with Beck Technology since 2012. He is
involved with Beck Technology’s Industry Advisory Board, which has been
the hub for generating new ideas and features for the company’s
technology offerings. Gerlach’s expert insight has helped Beck
Technology develop key features such as 3D takeoff, reporting, bid
leveling, historical costing, team estimating, comparison, and
dashboards within DESTINI Estimator.

“I was very fortunate to be introduced to Beck Technology at the start
of my preconstruction career,” said Gerlach. “That initial experience
opened my eyes to the future of the industry and Beck Technology has
been a true partner on the march towards that future. Kudos to the Beck
Technology team for their continued success in raising the bar for the
preconstruction industry one software release at a time. I can’t wait to
see what’s next!”

The Vision award is presented to a company that sought out innovation
and acted upon its ideas to help make the connection between today’s
construction industry and future ideals. These companies see areas in
which the industry is lacking and actively search for solutions to
issues, rather than waiting on someone else to provide answers. Vision
award recipients are pioneers within the preconstruction industry. The
Vision award recipient for 2019 is Balfour Beatty.

Balfour Beatty has been a customer of Beck Technology since 2008, and
was one of the first enterprise-wide implementers of DESTINI Estimator.
Its core group of preconstruction professionals have been instrumental
in rolling out the software across their company. Balfour Beatty has
consistently provided feedback on DESTINI Estimator and how it can be
improved for the industry, as well as working closely with Beck
Technology’s development team to test out new features.

“We deployed DESTINI Estimator to help support our company’s growth by
standardizing to one estimating platform across our seven divisions
nationwide,” said Kasey Bevans, Chief Information Officer for Balfour
Beatty in the United States. “Since going live in 2017, Beck Technology
has been a good partner and the platform has provided our teams tighter
risk management controls, efficient data sharing, uniform reporting and
workflows, advanced model-based estimating and standardized estimating
procedures. Having all of these capabilities rolled into one solution
has improved our operational efficiency and reduced cost by eliminating
other technology investments.”

“Presenting the Excellence and Vision awards reiterates how much Beck
Technology values collaboration from our customers and the industry,”
said Stewart Carroll, President of Beck Technology. “I know our honorees
have a multitude of responsibilities and the fact that they take the
time to share ideas and test out new features is a testament to all of
us working together to revolutionize the construction industry.”
