Posted: Monday, June 11, 2018

Over its 42 years of development, by focusing investment on advanced equipment, high-quality human resources, technological renovation and increasing access to foreign investors, the Architects and Construction Service Corporation (ACSC) has continuously grown to become one of the most reputable, famous and experienced construction brands, a brand that is closely connected with world-class construction works, and a reliable partner of domestic and foreign investors.

Headquartered in Ho Chi Minh City, ACSC, founded in 1976, was formerly a State-owned enterprise affiliated with the Ministry of Trade (now Ministry of Industry and Trade). Since its inception, it has designed and constructed a variety of projects nationwide. In 1994, ACSC started to take part in foreign-invested projects in Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone and then expanded to many other industrial parks nationwide. Typical destinations included Linh Trung Export Processing Zone, Vinh Loc Industrial Park, Bien Hoa 1 Industrial Park, Bien Hoa 2 Industrial Park, AMATA Industrial Park, Long Thanh Industrial Park, Song Than Industrial Park, VSIP-I, VSIP-II and VSIP-IIA industrial parks.

In addition, ACSC was responsible for building two ventilating towers in the tunnel project across the Saigon River, built by Japan’s Obayashi Corporation; a terminal at Lien Khuong Airport (Lam Dong province); 500-bed Chau Doc Hospital (An Giang province); factories of Toshiba, Fujitsu, YKK, Uni President and San Miguel; the head office of Quang Trung Software City; Meeting Hall T78 of the Party Central Committee. Since then, ACSC has become widely known to more domestic and foreign investors as an experienced construction designer and constructor, especially in industrial projects. Customers from Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, China, Thailand, the Philippines, Australia, Germany and other nations are very satisfied with the quality, progress and service delivered by ACSC. For example, a 30,000-square metre Nippon Konpo project was kicked off and completed as scheduled, in just over five months, and was highly appreciated by the partner. Or the factory of Taiwanese Tainan Enterprises, commissioned by ACSC as a general designing and construction contractor, met the American green construction standard and went into operation in 2017.

Adhering to the guiding philosophy of “SAFETY FIRST - NO COMPROMISE OF QUALITY” and “AUTHENTIC COLLABORATION LEADS TO SUSTAINABLE CONTRIBUTION”, ACSC has brought the highest satisfaction to customers and always achieved sustainable development. In 2006, the firm was named the Labour Hero title in the renovation period for outstandingly creative achievements.

Active innovation for integration
In order to deliver the highest value to our customers, ACSC has actively renovated modern technologies for design and construction. According to an ACSC representative, since 1994, the company has cooperated with many Japanese partners in medium and large-scale projects. With this cooperation, the firm has acquired new construction technologies and advanced management methods from partners. Particularly, in 2016, ACSC worked out a development strategy called ACSC 4.0 with the slogan of acceleration.

This development strategy is based on three pillars: Design, construction and green real estate. ACSC has invested a lot in technological development to improve its design and construction capabilities, and purchase new and advanced equipment to participate in key projects.

Particularly, ACSC is considered one of the first designing and construction contractors in Vietnam to apply the BIM technology to construction. For example, the plant of Tainan Enterprises Vietnam Co., Ltd. was among projects that ACSC adopted BIM technology from design to construction. This is also one of the factors that got this project certified Green Building according to the US LEED GOLD standard. Especially, for its own Greenfield apartment projects, ACSC also applied the BIM technology to design, construction and management to address issues emerging from original designs.

Not only accessing modern technology from other countries, ACSC has actively participated in economic and technology forums in Vietnam and foreign nations to grasp major trends and become members of professional associations or business community to share and capture experience, expertise and management with its peers. On the other hand, the Board of Directors of ACSC always understands that, to cooperate with big investors and contractors from developed countries such as Japan, South Korea and Western countries, the company must actively raise its levels, enhance the absorbability of technology transfer and acquire effective and modern project management methods. Moreover, in order to adapt to international integration trends, ACSC has joined hands with Japanese partners to set up ACSC & FUJINAMI Construction Consulting Company, and the leader of this joint venture is also the member of the Board of Directors of ACSC. The company believes that the international thinking and experience of foreign experts will help it complete the goal of reaching out to the world in the future.

Additionally, ACSC actively changes its approach to human resources management. The company gives priority to cooperate with many universities and research institutes throughout the country to recruit young and talented people who are capable of acquiring modern knowledge and ready to dedicate themselves to building iconic works in the integration period.
