Welcome to our first newsletter of 2019! First we would like to wish you a happy new year. At Ergodomus we are particularly excited to announce the release of the new book written by our Director Franco (this is currently only available in Italian, but watch this space…).
We are also delighted to be involved in a number of very interesting projects past the Italian border, on the international scene. In this issue, we will be covering the central topic of durability along with a return on experience sharing technical information on a very special building we engineered a few years ago.
Finally we inform you that we will be exhibiting in London (UK) and in Portalnd (US) in March. We look forward to welcoming you to our booth! Ps.: we are now a very proud to be member of Trada!
