Owned by Tracy Matson and Dave Somero, Ace/Avant first distinguished itself from the competition with the introduction of the Somero Laser Screed®. Dave Somero is the inventor and developer of the Somero Laser Screed® that revolutionized the concrete construction industry in the early 90s. The same passion and drive that fueled the creation of the Laser Screed® is at the core of every project we undertake today. Today our team includes over 200 qualified, skilled employees, offering clients an impressively diversified experience base. Our unique team allows us to offer complete site and concrete construction services, starting a job with raw land and carrying it through to completed concrete structure. Headquartered in North Carolina, our team has constructed more than 280 million square feet of industrial floors and tilt-up wall panels in over 20 states since 1990.
