The structural design and consulting team "Ergon Analysis" developed from the relevant activity, since 1991, of Charis Gantes, Professor at the National Technical University of Athens. In 2001 Maria Villi and Yiannis Psaras joined the team, followed in recent years by other structural engineers.
Since 2004 we have a multi-faceted cooperation with the structural design office "Design & Application Engineers SA" (www.mhxme.com), leading in shared accommodation, since 2010, in a common office building in Marousi, near down-town Athens.
"Ergon Analysis" is active in structural design of buildings and other, special structures, mainly made of structural steel but also of reinforced concrete and masonry, both independently and in cooperation with structural design offices and construction companies in Greece and abroad. Our range of activities encompasses:
Design of steel and reinforced concrete buildings.
Condition assessment and strengthening of old steel, reinforced concrete and masonry structures.
Long-span steel structures for athletic, industrial and commercial facilities.
Power plant structures.
Wind turbine towers and foundations.
Buried pipelines transporting oil and natural gas.
Port and marine facilities.
Temporary bracing for deep excavations.
Structures for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games.
Highway infrastructure projects including structures for “Attiki Odos”, the Athens peripheral highway.
Underground structures including tunnels and stations for “Attiko Metro”, the Athens subway.
In "Ergon Analysis" we put emphasis on the high quality of the provided services, using the most up-to-date analysis, design and drawing software. We specialize in non-conventional structures and advanced static and dynamic numerical analysis methods. We place particular attention in the conceptual design of the structural system, in compatibility with the architectural and functional requirements, as an important means of optimization of the quality and cost of the project. We believe that close and fruitful cooperation of all involved disciplines is a prerequisite for balancing often conflicting design criteria.
