2023 has seen BECK enjoy steady growth, deliver exceptional finishes on high profile and prestigious projects and drive our ESG agenda forward.  We have welcomed new members to the team and celebrated the wider leadership team with some well deserved promotions.

As in previous years, the team raised a significant amount of money for worthy causes and charities, from a variety of events throughout the past 12 months.


We are delighted to now have a team of qualified mental health first aiders, demonstrating our commitment to the well-being of our employees. We also celebrated National Apprenticeship Week by highlighting the importance of apprenticeships in developing the next generation of skilled professionals.


Client drinks at NoMad London, provided an opportunity to connect with our valued partners and express our appreciation for their continued support. We also opened our head office doors to clients throughout the year, offering tours to showcase our 68,000 sqft joinery workshop and the impressive craftsmanship of our team.

In addition to our business growth, we have made strides in promoting diversity, equality, and inclusion.  We celebrated International Women’s Day with a company-wide initiative to recognise the achievements of women in the construction industry. We also hosted a ‘Women in Property’ brunch and tour at our BECK projects in Scotland, providing an opportunity for women in the industry to network and share their career experiences.

The Interiors team has had an exceptional year, marked by an unwavering commitment to excellence in the hospitality and residential sectors. We attended the prestigious Hotel Leadership Conference presented by Master Innholders as a sponsor, the International Hospitality Investment Forum, the Global Hospitality Talk as an event partner and The Annual Hotel Conference, gaining valuable insights into the latest trends and challenges facing the hospitality industry.

The team’s dedication to design excellence was recognized when The Artist’s Bar at The Dorchester was shortlisted at the AHEAD Awards in the ‘Bar, Club or Lounge’ category. This prestigious nomination highlights the team’s ability to create captivating and beautifully crafted spaces.

We were thrilled to be appointed by Diageo for ‘Guinness at Old Brewer’s Yard’, a project that will transform several historic London sites into a vibrant microbrewery and culture hub.  We have also secured works at the prestigious 1 Mayfair project.

Expert craftsmanship from our in-house joinery workshop has featured throughout our projects.  The Artist’s Bar at The Dorchester was created entirely within the workshop. The ornate, curved seating bar was then clad in gold leaf and adorned with crystals procured from Lalique.

The apartments at 60 Curzon Street and Grosvenor House Suites featured highly skilled joinery throughout with bespoke kitchens, vanity units and wall panelling, all manufactured within our Chessington facility.

Finally, our continued involvement as a collaborative partner of the Festival of Hospitality reaffirms our commitment to the industry.


This year, our museum team delivered exceptional projects, attended informative conferences and celebrated prestigious awards.  We were appointed for the fit-out works for Harris Your Place, a new cultural hub in Preston, and received the honour of being appointed by Historic Royal Palaces to create the new King Charles III’s cypher sign at the Tower of London.

The Hunterian Museum reopened its doors after BECK returned to complete a second fit-out for our client. The project transformed the museum’s galleries and spaces, creating a more accessible and engaging experience for visitors.

Our team actively participated in the Museum & Heritage conference, staying abreast of the latest trends and developments in the museum sector.

At BECK, we are committed to ensuring our business makes a positive impact.  In 2023, we continued to uphold our values, through initiatives that promoted sustainability, social responsibility, and ethical practices throughout our operations.

Demonstrating our commitment to environmental protection, we donated wood offcuts from our joinery workshop to a local secondary school.  The offcuts were repurposed in Design and Technology classes to create ornaments that raised money for the Epsom & Ewell Food Bank. This initiative not only diverted waste from landfill but also supported a worthy cause.

Our commitment to sustainability extended to our signage, as we replaced all plastic and metal signage on our sites with correx signage. Correx is a ‘close loop recycled’ material, meaning it can be recycled back into reusable sheets once used, further reducing our reliance on virgin materials and minimizing our environmental impact.

We were proud to sponsor of The Butterfly Ball for the Caudwell Children’s Charity, which helps to improve the lives of disabled and autistic children, as well as The Story of Christmas Appeal, which supports a broad range of charitable projects benefiting the homeless and disadvantaged children. Our team also participated in a beach clean in Blackpool, collaborating with ENVECO and Blackpool Council to remove litter from the coastline.

This initiative reflects our commitment to environmental stewardship and our dedication to enhancing the well-being of our local communities.
