Dr Anwar Zahid of Arcadis: protecting New Orleans
...
Dr Anwar Zahid. "Arcadis has three large divisions: infrastructure, program and construction management and environment," explains principal engineer Anwar Zahid, PhD. Dr Zahid is a PE in the state of Louisiana, and has experience in transportation and bridge projects. He is in Arcadis' infrastructure group, working on flood protection in New Orleans, LA.
After hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, New Orleans became notorious for its crumbling infrastructure. Levees alone can't protect the city: Zahid is working on floodgates, precast concrete retaining wall systems and a pumping station that will likely be the world's largest.
The company has flood protection projects in other states, including Texas, Florida and California, but Louisiana is the biggest to date. "We're running against a June 2011 deadline to achieve 100-year flood protection," Zahid explains. "We're increasing levee height to thirty-one feet and creating concrete walls to help keep water out of the city."
Born in Bangladesh, Zahid has a 1997 BSCE and a 1999 MSCE from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Dhaka, Bangladesh) and a 2005 PhD in structural engineering and mechanics from North Carolina State University.
The new Dr Zahid began as a structural engineer with Kimley Horn (West Palm Beach, FL). In 2007 Arcadis hired him to handle especially challenging projects. "My job has three parts: expanding our practice, mentoring young engineers and developing our group," he explains. "We have eight to ten engineers in our office now and I have four direct reports."
Bridge design and flood protection are naturals for Zahid, since Bangladesh suffers from frequent flooding during the monsoon season. Zahid grew up in the capital city of Dhaka, but his grandparents lived in the country and the family had to take a ferry to visit them. "Today they have one of the world's longest bridges over the Jamuna River," he says.
...
Zahid has a medal from the Prime Minister of Bangladesh for graduating first in his university class, and a "young researcher" fellowship from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He's a member of ASCE and the Louisiana Engineering Society. Although he enjoyed cricket growing up in Bangladesh, today he watches football with his son and daughter.
