Founded in 2010 by Scott Acton, every project Forté takes on benefits from the culmination of three generations of innovation and craftsmanship. Scott, his father and grandfather have brought creativity to life for more than 60 years. Their achievements at theme parks across the United States have created lifelong memories for young and old alike. Scott’s grandfather, Hubert Acton, began his career with Disney; then founded his own specialty construction company with his son, Ken Acton. Ken furthered his father’s legacy and moved the firm to Las Vegas, where Forté is headquartered today.
Starting with just one employee, Forté now has a team of more than 120 creative thinkers who have helped grow the business exponentially year after year. The Forté team infuses passion into their projects — enriching the design experience and enhancing cutting-edge technologies in order to achieve the most creative project solution possible. Within the industry, Forté is known for its ability to effectively take ownership of the entire process, assuring owners a project delivered with unsurpassed integrity of design, commitment to quality and stewardship of budget. The company’s diverse range of services include experiential retail and hospitality design, specialty construction, design build, pre-construction and consulting services for projects across the globe.
