Advance Construction Technology LTD. ACT
Corporate Profile and experience
ACT is a North American Based company specialized in innovative techniques for Reinforced concrete structures (RCS). The company focusing on the implementations of OUR recent registered patents in the field of retrofitting and mechanical couplers for RC commercial, distributor, industrial and construction companies.
Our goal is to add long life years to facilities while increasing super structure resistance to all different stresses, loads and earthquakes resistance.
Our technique is still the only complete solution method that treats beams and columns in a high efficient fashion in very cost effective way.
Our technique has been usefully implemented in numerous facilities in the Middle East where it was first registered. And now, and after our patented technique is approved and registered in North America, we are proud to introduce ourselves to benefit this new market.
