He holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from University of Evansville and a master’s degree in structural engineering from Virginia Tech. Mr. Hariri has over 36 years of experience in the engineering field, he has been engaged in wide-ranging projects which have been mostly complex and unique. He has a broad spectrum of in-depth structural engineering knowledge in investigation, evaluation, review, peer review, analysis, design, forensic investigation testing of complex and unusual buildings, non-building and component systems and structures. He is fully experienced in the design of reinforced concrete, steel, aluminum, stainless steel, timber, fiberglass, and masonry structures. He has been assigned and worked as a structural expert for the California Board for Professional Engineers and Land Surveyors for Reviewing & Evaluating other Structural Engineers' Work.
Mr. Hariri has designed complex and unique projects including new buildings, seismic strengthening of existing buildings, substation structures, petrochemical structures, Central Plant, steel stacks, towers, wind turbine, steel tanks, cranes, freeway sign structures, high mast poles, thyme park structures, pedestrian bridges, deep foundation, and foundation vibration analysis. He has been in charge of seismic certification of mechanical and electrical equipment such as fire pumps, battery racks, transformers and other mechanical and electrical components by analysis, shake table testing and experience data per IBC, CBC, IEEE and UFC. He has extensive knowledge about performance-based methodology. Mr. Hariri has performed studies, research and analysis in seismic strengthening for building, wind vibration, fatigue analysis for dynamically sensitive stacks, poles, towers and other dynamically loaded structures such as cranes.
Mr. Hariri has provided structural services to utility companies, such as Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), Los Angeles Department of Public Works, Los Angeles World Airport (LAWA), Los Angeles Department of Transportation, John Wayne Airport, and municipality such as City of Newport Beach, City of Glendale, City of El Segundo, City of El Monte, and City of Calabasas, including private companies such as Eaton Corporation, OHL USA and VOTAW Precision Technologies.
