Golnaz Izadi holds a bachelor degree in Civil Engineering, and has more than 15 years’ experience in commercial, residential and industrial fields. She is experienced in designing reinforced and post-tensioned concrete, structural steel, masonry, and timber material. She is currently employed by WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff as Senior Engineer, and works with the Structures Property team based in Melbourne. As part of her role, she manages commercial and residential apartment projects at design and construction stages. Golnaz has a particular interest in high rise developments, where efficiency pushes toward post-tensioned thinner floor plates, and open architecture dictates longer spans. Floor vibration becomes quite challenging, and requires using engineering judgment to ensure floor vibration is still within accepted level.
