Henry C. Beck Company

Working together for you

My recent find in my backyard was a “Henry C. Beck Company” hard hat. It is silver and I saw the shiny brim and dug it out of the ground. It seems that in 1912 Henry C. Beck founded the company in Houston, Texas as a general contractor.

Known as “The Beck Group” they have grown to serve a diverse range of industries, including corporate, healthcare, entertainment, religion, and education.

They are now based in Dallas, Texas, and have offices in Atlanta, Austin, Denver, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and Tampa. In 1999, under executive chairman Henry C. Beck III, the company merged with Urban Architecture, a regional design firm. In 2013 Fred Perpall became their 5th CEO.

Their resume includes AT&T Pinnacle Park (Dallas), One Atlantic Center (Atlanta), Baylor University Sciences Building (Waco), Disney Corporate Headquarters (Burbank), Duke University Basketball Practice Facility (Durham), Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (Los Angeles), Mary Kay Headquarters (Dallas), RadioShack Headquarters (Fort Worth), Texas Motor Speedway (Fort Worth), Valley Center (Phoenix) and the Cotton Exchange Building (Dallas).

Other projects include Tampa International Airport Airside C Terminal (Tampa), House of Blues (Dallas), Kangnam Joongang Baptist Church (Seaul, South Korea),

CoxHealth Dee Ann White Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Jared Neuroscience Center (Springfield, Missouri), and The Hub at Peachtree Center (Atlanta).

Texas Motor Speedway was one of the largest and most complex engineering projects completed in the U.S. in the 1990s. The entire construction process was completed in a record-breaking 18-month time frame – on time and on budget, despite heavy spring rains that significantly impacted final construction phases.
