Pedram Zohrevand Fulfills Assessment, Rehabilitation and Seismic Retrofit Design for All Structural Strengthening Projects

Pedram Zohrevand is the Director at CES4 and has more than 12 years of experience under his sleeves. His experience constitutes of design, construction, management and leadership. He is involved in the design, management and construction inspection of different private and governmental projects in the field of Civil and Structural Engineering.

Assessment, rehabilitation and seismic retrofit design of different aging and deficient structures are his responsibilities to fulfill in all the structural strengthening projects at CES4.

Pedram is having two offices in Florida and California. He did several projects in Florida and earthquake retrofit projects in California. He was able to handle an extensive variety of projects in Florida that included –

Designing a10,000 sq ft warehouse structure in Southwest Ranches, FL.

Rehabilitation design of Riverside Hotel (using Fiber Reinforced Polymers (FRP) for deficient concrete elements and helical piles for settling foundation) City of Miami, FL

Designing a 45,000 sq ft sanctuary building (steel structure) in Miami Gardens, Florida, serving as EOR.

Designing a 22,000 sq ft warehouse steel structure in West palm Beach, FL.

Rehabilitation design of a 145,000 sq ft reinforced concrete parking structure (Bank of America Parking), Coral Gables, Florida

Nonlinear dynamic analysis of Portofino Tower, a residential skyscraper in Miami Beach, (484 ft. tall reinforced concrete structure with 44 floors), and designing an additional roof top with a pool structure for the building

Engineering Design of the Largest Building in USA Made of Shipping/Cargo Containers, an Innovative Sustainable (22,000 sq.ft. four-story) office building in Miami.

Pertaining to his education, Pedram Zohrevand received his Ph.D. in civil engineering from Florida International University in 2012, where, he focused on advanced composite materials and earthquake engineering. His Ph.D. dissertation was funded ($2,000,000) by National Science Foundation (NSF)-Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation Research (NEESR), as it was a part of a multi-university research project. In 2007, he completed his M.Sc. in civil engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran. Prior to this, he received his B.Sc. from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran.

At Florida International University (FIU), Pedram Zohrevand has been serving as a Research Assistant Professor. At FIU, he conducts world-shattering and innovative research and development projects on the application of Fiber Reinforced Polymers and Ultra-High Performance Concrete in different structural systems including buildings and bridges. Over there, he has been teaching graduate and undergraduate courses as well.
