Technical expertise

ATIBT offers its technical expertise to producers and users of tropical timber. ATIBT can intervene in order to inspect delivered materials, as it has done for the quality control of Iroko keelblocks and the quality control and implementation of decking at the Cité de la Mode and the RER train platforms, etc.

Also, ATIBT is a member of the International Arbitration Chambre of Paris and can intervene with professionalism and impartiality in the event of a dispute. In this case, it will establish a report that makes it possible to determine – in a factual manner – the differences in quality between the goods that were contracted and the goods that were delivered. The end user can call on ATIBT’s experts to obtain an opinion on the durability of a work made of tropical timber, for example : the quality control of the installation of a wooden floor.
