This year’s Hönggerberg 2019 contact meeting was a great success at ETH and was well attended. Our local team consisting of Julia Hunziker (project member for contaminated sites) and Tino Pandiani (project manager for hazardous materials in buildings) were supported by Andrea Zimmermann (Marketing) and Thiago Biolley (trainee). They advised and informed interested parties. It was a popular and interesting event and we are looking forward to next year!
