": 1- Bevel was indeed the chief designer of the plan, working for the Separatist (or selling the plans to them) and was cloned by the Emperor to continue his research. (It's quite probable, considering that Bevel was cloned atleast one time during the classic Star Wars period.) Then at one point he supervised the DS construction and received all the honors for building it.
: 2- The DS wasn't designed by him, he "simply" prototyped and supervised the construction. The idea of the Empire have designed the plan is only propaganda. Surprising, isn'it?
: 3- The plans were not 100% completed, and Bevel Lemelisk have finished them, and after that built it."
I go for option 3 - that the plans weren't finished - the Geonosians had the basic ideas for a new "wonder weapon", which Dooku took to Coruscant. However, upon discovering that the blueprints only were 50% finished, the Imperial High Command gave Lemelisk and his friends orders to complete the Death Star design.
