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. The majority of their work throughout their history has been commercial, but realized they needed to expand beyond that. 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 (

) 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-Chief executive officer, 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. The company is headquartered in the Arts District, Dallas, Texas, Arts District of Downtown Dallas at the former Southwestern Life Insurance Building, designed by George Dahl, but announced a plan to relocate to Thanksgiving Tower in 2019.
