DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Beck Technology, leading software and service firm for the commercial construction industry, announced The Howard Hughes Corporation (HHC) has selected DESTINI® Estimator software to provide intelligent estimating technology for more than 150 estimators and team members through an enterprise licensing deal. The three-year software agreement includes custom development to add functionality within DESTINI Estimator to enhance specific HHC historic cost workflow.
The developer and operator conducted a thorough evaluation of estimating solutions prior to selecting Beck Technology’s product. The analytics in DESTINI Estimator’s comparison functionality provided HHC with a level of insight into projects previously not available and that HHC felt no other software provided.
HHC already relies on the DESTINI Profiler software to quickly conceptualize and manipulate concepts internally in the early stages of projects, even before an architect is on board. Katie Willis, director of preconstruction and estimating for The Howard Hughes Corporation, noted recently that “DESTINI Profiler is a game changer for us to communicate and speed up the design process. Additionally, the Beck Technology team has been great to work with and helpful in allowing us to gain access and knowledge of the software.”
HHC owns, manages, and develops commercial, residential, and mixed-use real estate throughout the U.S. The company is comprised of master planned communities, operating properties, development opportunities, and other assets spanning 16 states and with more than 1,100 employees.
“We are thrilled and honored that The Howard Hughes Corporation has chosen to implement DESTINI Estimator and extend its relationship with Beck Technology,” said Stewart Carroll, Beck Technology’s COO. “HHC’s core values of collaboration, speed, excellence, and innovation perfectly complement our values and mandate for our software.”
Key features of the DESTINI Estimator platform include:
- 2D and 3D takeoff views
- Autodesk Navisworks® integration
- Model comparison views and Microsoft Excel imports
ABOUT DESTINI SUITE
The innovation behind Beck Technology stems from DESTINI: design estimation integration initiative. DESTINI Profiler and DESTINI Estimator share a common cost database schema, allowing companies to manage a single database platform for both conceptual and detailed estimating. DESTINI Profiler outputs can be opened in DESTINI Estimator and form the basis of the downstream estimating process. Alternatively, DESTINI Estimator can be used from the beginning of the project through project completion.
