  • We represent Beck Technology, a member of the Beck Group of companies You may have heard of the Beck Group, they are a 100 year old ENR top 50 GC based in Dallas TX Beck Technology was formed in the mid 1990’s and have been selling DProfiler since late 2006 DProfiler is an integrated modeling and cost estimating tool aimed at the earliest phases of a project enabling its users to make smarter, better, more informed decisions prior to an owner go/no go decision
  • Many in our industry look at technology as the silver bullet. The solution to all our problems. I for one don’t believe this. Technology though is a tool that when used in the right way and at the right time can enable us to change our delivery models and potentially solve some of our issues. BIM is not a new technology however its impact on our industry is only now becoming mainstream. Simply put BIM enables us to design and build a virtual model of the building . It enables us to simulate different scenarios, it also enables us to make mistakes on the computer rather than in the field. Micro BIM – Is being heavily used by the design and construction communities to design, fabrictate and construct the built environment. In enables our practitioners to answer the question of How do we build the building Macro BIM – On the other hand is aimed at the front end of the project, to enable owners to answer a fundamentally different question, namely IF the concept meets all the owners needs. Think of Macro as a very quick model used to simulate the high level factors associated with a go no go decision
  • Our software solution, DProfiler, is aimed at fostering communication at the beginning of the process. It is an integrated tool meaning that in a single application we can study the impact of change on cost, energy, the site, the schedule, the program, etc. Our intent is to enable value engineering at the front of the process. Value engineering is typically not done until after the Architect has provided a concept. By providing an integrated solution value engineering is integrated into the development of the concept. Since the technology is integrated it also enables multiple stakeholders from different departments to collaborate. Organizations like OBO(Overseas Bldg Operations, Dept of State) have great people, who provide lots of experience and knowledge, but often this is not used because they are not at the table when decisions are being made. The tool is based on establishing assumptions for elements in the graphical model. Costs are a by-product of these assumptions; modifying the assumption will impact the cost. The tool makes the assumptions visible to all stakeholders.
