Architecture and construction firm to use AI-powered construction optioneering platform on capital projects
Dallas-based architecture and construction firm, the Beck Group, has selected Alice Technologies’ construction optioneering platform for use on its key capital projects.
The platform uses generative AI to help general contractors and owners plan, bid and build large-scale infrastructure and commercial projects ‘more efficiently and with reduced risk’.
Beck will use the Alice platform on a project it is designing and building for Woods Capital’s Pacific Elm Properties. Called The Ivy, the project is a 200,000 square foot mixed-use tower. It will deliver ground-floor retail, nine floors of office space, and eight levels of above-ground parking just north of Dallas’ fast-growing Knox District.
“The technology is an ideal use case for this project,” said Bryce Morrow, chief corporate officer at Beck. “Alice will create thousands of innovative ways to deliver The Ivy and find the best solution to build it in a way that traditional technologies cannot.”
“The Beck Group’s design-build focus is well-suited for Alice. Our platform encourages close collaboration between general contractors and owners,” said Alice CEO René Morkos.
“Powered by generative AI, Alice creates thousands of schedule options for a project. It then enables GCs and owners to work shoulder to shoulder as they evaluate ways to tune the project that could make schedules even more efficient.
“We’re excited to contribute to the success of The Ivy project, and we look forward to expanding our partnership to address additional projects with The Beck Group.”
