NAIOP Georgia Names Beck Associate Firm of the Year
- Dec 9, 2019
The Georgia Chapter of the National Association of Office and Industrial Properties (NAIOP) awarded The Beck Group its Associate Firm of the Year Award for 2019.
The award goes to an Associate member firm that exemplifies impact to the Atlanta community and Georgia, industry involvement, service to NAIOP, and important firm or project accomplishments throughout the year.
“We are so grateful for this recognition from our colleagues, partners, and friends at NAIOP. This award is a great end to the year and reflects our work in the community,” said David Hutchison, director of business development and one of Beck’s liaisons at NAIOP.
Contributions to the Commercial Real Estate Industry
2019 was a particularly meaningful year for Beck, as the firm’s impact in the commercial real estate industry and greater Atlanta community continues to grow. Over the last year alone, our design-build projects and diversity outreach have played a critical role in strengthening the commercial and cultural narrative of our city.
Some of the most notable projects include our renovations at Peachtree Center Plaza and Mall, the transformation of Phipps Plaza, and the grand openings of The Candler Hotel, Atlanta Dairies, and Larkin on Memorial.
Beck also launched its Beck-Envision Partnership Program (BEPP) at the beginning of 2019. As part of our commitment to building communities and people, the BEPP program provides diverse companies with the knowledge to grow their businesses. It also helps them expand capacity, build networks, and build relationships to pursue work with Beck and similarly scaled construction managers. The inaugural class of six firms celebrated its graduation in June.
Giving Back to the Atlanta Community and NAIOP
The team at Beck impacted an impressive amount of organizations and nonprofits in the community. Over 20 organizations have benefited from the firm’s volunteerism and pro bono efforts, including the Atlanta Center for Creative Inquiry, Habitat for Humanity, Livable Buckhead, and the Simon Youth Foundation.
As a member of NAIOP Georgia, Beck proudly encourages participation across the organization. Year over year, our firm is a proud sponsor of a gold table at NAIOP Night, which benefits the Ron Clark Academy. This year, Beck was a sponsor of the 2019 NAIOP Members Golf tournament.
Two of our leaders – David Hutchison and Associate AIA Ryan Woods – serve as liaisons at NAIOP. The two regularly attend NAIOP Breakfast meetings. Hutchison, who has been a member since 2011, is on the government affairs committee and represents NAIOP at MARTG meetings.
Woods was a member of NAIOP’s Future Leaders and in 2018, joined the prestigious Future Leaders Executive Board.
