Farid Joined Foundation Engineering from a Massacheusetts-based engineering firm in 2012. Since joining Foundation Engineering, Farid has completed site investigations, provided geotechnical analysis and design, and construction‑phase services for several single and multi-span bridges, retaining structures, landslide mitigation and remediation, and ground improvement projects.

Prior to joining Foundation Engineering, Farid’s gained extensive experience with soft ground tunneling, deep excavations, soil-cement treatment, geotechnical instrumentation, air-blast and vibration monitoring and the analysis of structure response due to rock blasting.  Farid has been involved in several large projects such as Brightwater Conveyance System, Rio Salado Oeste Channel Improvement, and the Interstate 84 Westbound Sandy River Bridge. He has also authored and co-authored several technical papers.
