actBeirut, Lebanon: In line with its ongoing growth strategy and its continuing commitment to meet client needs, Advanced Construction Technology Services (ACTS), a leading consulting organisation in the field of construction materials and geotechnical engineering, has announced the opening of a new branch in Tripoli, Lebanon.  With this development, ACTS now has 3 main laboratories and 5 engineering offices in Lebanon.

Engr. Khaled Awad, Chairman of ACTS, said, “The opening of the Tripoli branch coincides with the 20th year anniversary of ACTS. This speaks volume about our commitment to the Lebanese Construction market. It also reflects our belief that North Lebanon will witness soon a substantial rise in construction activities. ACTS will ensure it brings its twenty years and regional experience in quality control and unique know-how in testing to Lebanon second capital and the whole north.”

Since its establishment in 1996, ACTS has been going from strength to strength leading the way in raising the quality standards for the construction industry, becoming, in fact, the preferred third-party provider in the region for geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and consulting. The company has also been pioneering several notable technological advancements in concrete materials and geoengineering fields, including the recently developed “ACTS Online Concrete Pouring & Quality Control System”, a breakthrough web-based application for construction materials testing, said to be the most innovative solution today in the field of concrete.  As a testament to its impressive credentials, ACTS has been awarded contracts to lend its expertise to some of the most ambitious megaprojects in the region, among them the Riyadh Metro, King Abdulaziz International Airport, Doha Metro and Kingdom Tower, the world’s first kilometer-high skyscraper being constructed in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, among others.

Commenting on ACTS’ future, Engr. Awad said, “We still intend to expand into new GCC markets and we hope to announce a new market entry before year end.  We have successfully expanded our reach over the years and this has enabled us to significantly grow our business.
