Founded in 1992 by Prof. Maurizio Merli, Prof. Gianfranco Marchi and Eng. Giancarlo Guadagnini, ENSER has grown constantly in time welcoming brilliant graduates mainly from the University of Bologna.
In the form of a Limited Liability Company since 2001, today ENSER is a dynamic team of Engineers, Geologists, Draftsmen and BIM Designers operating in 3 offices in Italy. In 2016 ENSER opened a Succursale in Paris.
Over time, part of the ownership of the firm has been shared by the founders and is now in the hands of the most experienced collaborators, who participate actively in the life and in the strategy of the company. Nowadays ENSER has 39 shareholders, and one of them is Project Partners Ltd, an engineering firm based in Switzerland.

Diversification of the Activity
Our references include the design and project management of infrastructures (roads, railways, port quays), civil and industrial buildings, underground structures. We carry out work supervision, on-site assistance and inspections for any type of civil engineering work.
Specialized services that we provide are also the evaluation of bearing capacity and settlement for traditional and special foundations, the analysis of slope stability and of suitable methods for soil consolidation and the assessment of seismic vulnerability for civil and industrial buildings.
More recently, our expertise has been enhanced with the design of the structures and foundations for automated warehouses (often subject of very strict boundary conditions), and the design of buildings and infrastructures in a BIM environment.
