Structural condition assessment
Post-tensioning cable failure
Building facade’s performance evaluation
Hamidreza Tahsiri is a Project Engineer in our Forensics practice working from the Miami office. Mr. Tahsiri gained experience in several litigation projects including collapse analysis, structural condition assessment, Post-tensioning cable failure, corrosion damage, water intrusion, and building façade’s performance evaluation. He specializes in design, analysis, and strengthening of reinforced concrete, steel, and composite structures (mid-rise, high-rise, long-span, and irregular space structures). He possesses strong leadership and relation skills with clients, managers, designers and sub-contractors, ensuring needs are met within time sensitive deadlines.
