Services description

Ethos engineering, has gained, in more than twenty years’ experience of its technical staff, a consolidated skill and specific know-how in planning and directing the construction of complex infrastructures. The complexity of this kind of works is mainly due to the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach considering all the technical, economic and environmental involved aspects and searching for the best final solution.

The main services are provided in the sectors of roads, railways and seaports.
