Dr.Mehdizadeh participated in the design and strengthening of existing parking structure, existing foundation and also 4 levels above ground new structure including 200 feet long-span truss frames located on the building roof. The concrete structure strengthened to receive considerable loading from the 4 story new structure planned. Retrofitting and strengthening this existing structure was a considerable challenge due to the existing condition and the size of the planning performed for expansion of the convention center.
