Beck Technology, developer of innovative construction estimating software, is excited to announce that H.J. Russell & Company has selected Beck Technology’s DESTINI Estimator as its commercial preconstruction solution.

H.J. Russell logoBased out of Atlanta, Russell has extensive experience in building and renovating projects in a diverse set of market segments, including high-profile offices, public assembly, retail, multifamily residentials, student housing, parking decks, institutional, education, and sports facilities. They work as a construction manager, general contractor, design-build contractor, program managers, or consultants.

As Russell’s estimating team expands into new offices located in Dallas, they will now utilize a single integrated solution instead of splitting their projects between Sage and Excel.

With their focus on many multifamily projects, Russell’s preconstruction team finds that DESTINI Estimator’s database functionality paired with conceptual estimating ability within one reliable integrated database system and hosted offering were several of the driving points for choosing Beck Technology.

Russell is one of Beck’s first client partnerships to adopt the new hosted environment, as well as the Power BI dashboard set up. Russell began using Estimator in July 2021 for all its projects.
