About Us
Established in 1996, ACTS has become the preferred third-party provider for geotechnical engineering, materials testing, and consulting, and is the Local Sponsoring Group for the American Concrete Institute (ACI)’s programs in the Middle East. We were the first consulting firm in our field in the Middle East to obtain the ISO 9001, ISO 17025, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications, and we are the recognized representative of IHS, ASTM, BSI, IEEE and many other global standards development organizations.
We have pioneered technological advancements in concrete materials and geoengineering, and successfully adapted new advancements in the field to local practices and specifications in the MENA region.
We proudly host the largest library of hard copy and online engineering specifications, standards, codes of practice, and regulations in the world, and we are dedicated to spreading our knowledge through seminars, training, and conferences, including Future Concrete, a unique technical forum for the applications of concrete and the largest concrete conference in the region, which we annually organize.

Our operations currently cover the entire MENA region through our branches and activities in Lebanon, Qatar and KSA.

From all of this, you learn one simple fact about our company: we are committed to improving the understanding and use of materials in the construction industry.

For every project, whether consulting, geotechnical engineering, materials testing, environmental assessment, training and certification, or speaking engagements, we use our substantial knowledge and resources to help our clients achieve the highest standards of excellence.
