Scott Beck, Managing Architect, insists he didn’t excel at his first drafting class — but he definitely caught the bug. He enrolled in a technical drafting program and fell in love with the technical side of architecture. That was more than 40 years ago.

Scott specializes in educational facility planning and design in his role as Managing Architect. He is engaged from the moment a new building is conceived, winning the confidence of clients with his attention to details from programming to completion. One of his favorite projects, the additions to Chandler High School in Chandler, Arizona, involved re-planning and expanding the historic campus to meet modern needs. Scott and his team had to earn significant buy-in from the community and the surrounding neighborhoods to build sports fields, tennis courts, and a 50-meter competition swimming pool and dive tank, among many other improvements. In the end, Scott and his team were given a beautification award by the city.

Scott has been happily married for 40 years and is happiest when he’s able to spend time with his five children and 11 grandchildren. He is still involved with the Boy Scouts and, if he gets a chance, likes to play a little golf.
