Engineering Projects

At ERN, we work hand in hand with the construction industry. We have contributed in hundreds of construction projects all across Latin America, helping to fully understand natural hazards and the associated risk, contributing to attain safer, functional, economical and sustainable projects.

Our studies provide project specific design specifications that enable you to evaluate and mitigate the risks associated with the different phenomena that occur in nature.
