"We deliver Quality and Complete Customer Satisfaction through a highly efficient, vertically integrated real estate approach." 
Mark Shapland, EVP - Chief Operating Officer

The cornerstone of Becknell’s approach is efficiency. As a vertically integrated real estate company, Becknell provides a complete end to end development solution consistently delivering a high-value, low-cost solution to our clients. Early involvement in the project and a collaborative atmosphere between architect, contractor and client are the guiding principles of our approach.

We develop and own primarily build-to-suit facilities leased to single tenants. We also develop speculative facilities for single users or multiple tenants on undeveloped ground we own in industrial parks we have developed. Current industrial parks include 126 acres in Mohave, AZ, 28 acres in Phoenix, AZ and nearly 140 acres in Hobart, IN. We work directly with corporate clients as well as national and local brokerage firms.

While Becknell builds the entire spectrum of industrial facilities in different parts of the country, there is one thing all Becknell facilities have in common – Quality. Quality that protects financial investment. Quality that satisfies the demand for modern, state-of-the-art industrial facilities for our tenants. Quality that remains functional over the long term. Quality that allows flexibility for our tenants to meet their changing needs.

Becknell provides in-house expertise for all phases of a real estate project allowing us to be flexible while delivering a high quality product at the best value.

We deliver Quality and complete customer satisfaction through a highly efficient, vertically integrated real estate approach. Becknell provides in-house expertise for all phases of a real estate project---site selection, entitlement, pre-development, architecture, engineering, estimating, construction management, leasing, property management and maintenance. We also provide investment management through financing, acquisitions and dispositions of properties. These in-house capabilities allow us to be flexible and provide rapid response to client requests, while delivering product at best value.

We deliver this vertically-integrated approach through an experienced team of professionals. Our Executive Committee is comprised of five individuals with more than 100 years of collective real estate and business experience. In addition to our Executive Committee, our team includes a wealth of technical expertise in key real estate professional disciplines, including licensed architects, engineers, construction managers and CPAs. By investing in experienced associates in these fields, we are able to better serve our customers through direct, immediate expert feedback and lower cost outsourced service providers.

At the core of Becknell’s superior delivery system is our design-build construction capabilities. Becknell continues to benefit from the dedicated, construction services of Fritz Hartrich, who brings over 40 years of national construction experience to the Company. Fritz is a co-founder of Becknell along with Dan Harrington and currently focuses on new development, construction advisory services and value creation opportunities for the Company.
