Our History

 

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.

Presence Abroad

 

ENSER has a French Succursale active since 2008 in Ile de France and officially established in 2016. ENSER France is a team of young and dynamic professionals specialized in the preparation of detailed designs for various types of infrastructures, especially underground, in the context of the actual developments of the Grand Paris Express. Working with local professionals and designing complex structures in a delicate urban environment allows us to develop very specific skills and expertise. We are always ready and keen to be present in the construction sites: this feeds our passion for this work and enriches our experience as well as our steady relationships with our Clients.

Since 2017, the engineering firm Project Partners Ltd Consulting Engineers, with head office in Grancia (Lugano, Switzerland), has been a shareholder of ENSER Srl with a possession of 9%. Project Partners, founded in 1973, is specialized in the design and work supervision of civil structures and infrastructures. Among others relevant works, Project Partners has carried out the full scope of engineering services (preliminary and detailed design, tendering, work supervision) for the realization of the southern entrance of the railway Gotthard Base Tunnel. The company has established strong contacts with the Swiss Federal and foreign Institutes of Technology, promoting the transfer of knowledge from the academic field to the world of industry and construction.

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.
