The Beck Group was founded in 1912 by Henry C. Beck in Houston, Texas as a general contractor and moved its headquarters to Dallas in 1924, a requirement for building the city's Cotton Exchange Building.
In the 1990s the construction company began adding other services, such as design and real estate development. It also acquired a UK-developed software product (Reflex) and began to develop a proprietary software, DESTINI, which would provide immediate costs for buildings as they were modeled in the schematic design phase.
In 1999, under the leadership of then-CEO (present executive chairman) Henry C. Beck III, the company merged with Urban Architecture, a regional design firm. In 2013 Fred Perpall took over from Beck III as the fifth CEO of the design-build firm.
