“In our collaboration with KMT in the delivery of prefabricated exterior wall elements for our project “Hurum Helsehus'' in Norway, Acetra has assisted in the design of these elements. This process has been extremely professional on the part of Acetra. They delivered a high-quality product in a very short time. As leader of this process, I experienced Acetra as cooperative, solution-oriented, knowledgeable and enterprising to create the best solutions.”
"The collaboration with Acetra was very productive, their team was effectively oriented towards finding the best solutions without compromising the original design and listened carefully to all of our considerations. We worked together in the timber design of a holiday house in the woods near Oslo and the result was successful preserving all architectural qualities present in our design and optimizing the possibilities of building with CLT. “
“Acetra has provided structural timber engineering services to Skonto Prefab for a number of years. They have always been a dedicated partner and an essential part of the team. Partnering with a responsible, dedicated and passionate client has always been critical for Skonto Prefab! Acetra delivers these expectations in a professional manner that creates a relationship rather than a business atmosphere.“
"Engineering prefabricated timber structures to match our client's high expectations has never been easy. Acetra makes the effort to understand particular parameters and constraints to deliver exceptional results. We always have dedicated project management with concise and systematic communication driving the project to completion. Acetra's unequivocal attention to our timelines has always benefited downstream in our procurement and delivery. "
"First of all Acetra is very professional, motivated with high work ethic team. From very beginning they help us to solve a project task’s. Secondly my team and I was very impressed how good they communicate with us as a client to reach one main goal – good project. Last but not least results of the project task’s is very professional and nicely done by Acetra, especially static calculation report."
Acetra recently provided structural timber engineering services for our Katara Hills, Doha Project where from conception we had only 5 months to deliver 19 villas in time for the World Cup. The extreme timeframes were not a problem for Acetra who were integral to our success in delivering ontime without issue. Venturer and Acetra are currently enjoying working together on an array of Projects that require highly innovative solutions to some very challenging building forms. We are very pleased to have Acetra in our team and applaud their professionalism, knowledge and the high calibre of their deliverables.
Working alongside Acetra on two projects has been very positive. The engineers involved in these projects have successfully embraced the LEKO Labs constructive system and adapted their mass timber knowledge to our non-standard details. They have been friendly and responsive making this collaboration very positive all rounds. We look forward to our next projects together.
