BE&K Gains Company-Wide Benefits Through New Pype Partnership
BE&K has entered into an enterprise agreement with Pype, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of automated solutions for construction risk management, allowing us unlimited usage of Pype’s AutoSpecs platform.
BE&K’s primary purpose for AutoSpecs in our workflow is to help project teams create comprehensive logs of project requirements, including submittals, closeout requirements, mock-ups, tests and inspections, and more. By automatically scanning uploaded specification documents, Pype’s algorithms identify those requirements in a matter of minutes, then provide interfaces for users to review those requirements, adjust and update them as new specifications or addenda are released, and export all of that data to BIM 360 to track throughout the life of the project.
Pype AutoSpecs provides us with more than just a submittal identification system. The versioning feature digitally examines bid specs so our estimators can easily identify requirements or products that may impact cost and/or schedule.
This unlimited enterprise agreement ensures that these benefits can be extended to our estimating department for use on every project, increasing BE&K’s ROI. Ultimately, we will get more value out of AutoSpecs, and can bid on and win more projects, while deepening our relationships with project owners.

BE&K already partners with Autodesk, and Pype’s integration with their BIM 360 platform really opened the door for this agreement. It’s our people that ensure our projects are delivered on time and exceed client expectations, so we want to provide them with the tools necessary to achieve that vision by the most efficient means possible.
