Our Mission

Farah B. Majidzadeh formed Resource International, Inc. (Rii) in 1973 with a passion of bringing new technology to the AEC industry and encouraging women in STEM fields. We advanced to more than 150 employees and multiple offices by offering in-house, family-run business values coupled with technology, innovation and quality. Rii provides public and private entities with high-quality engineering, construction management and information technology consulting services to improve our communities’ infrastructure. Our goal is to conduct our services within or under budget in a timely manner.

Our History

1973

 

Firm Incorporation

On August 21, 1973, Rii was incorporated as a company under Ohio law. Our founder, Farah Majidzadeh, sent out typed letters to various clients, hoping for one or two responses of interest. Just two weeks later, she had her first two clients, Delaware County Engineer's Office and the City of Worthington Engineer's Office, who were interested in Rii's innovative and unique equipment. With her contracts in tow, she quickly launched a small technology firm, Resource International, Inc., from the basement of her family home with the unique capability of diagnosing the conditions of pavements.

1975

 

First International Office in Kuwait

In 1975, the Kuwait operation took off very rapidly, and Rii and its affiliate registered in Kuwait as Resource International, Ltd. grew up to 75 employees. Farah and Kamran hand-picked their employees, asking only the top-notch leveled experts to join the team in providing a wide range of services to the Government Minstry of Public Works and Ministry of Aviation.

1984

 

First Branch Office

In 1984, Rii demonstrated its commitment to bringing quality service and innovative technologies to new regions by opening a branch office in Cleveland, OH. This first branch was a landmark moment in Rii's history, and it paved the way for further expansion throughout the 80s and 90s.

1987

 

International Achievement

A multi-year contract with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia resulted in the development and implementation of a Highway Maintenance Management System for the entire country. This project showcased the firm’s expertise and use of technology in engineering, research and development.

1998

 

Technological Takeoff

The creation of the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission in 1997 gave the IT Division a cornerstone opportunity to develop an interactive project management website for the State’s 12 year, $10.2 billion dollar program. Rii still maintains this award-winning website today.

2002

 

Ground Penetrating Radar Expertise

In 2002, technology advanced in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) equipment and applications offering Rii a national niche service in providing Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for concrete evaluations of bridge decks and roadway projects. Caltrans hired Rii in 2005 to complete a GPR survey on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and the Richmond- San Rafael Bridge, which are a combined 2.5 million in square feet. This landmark project demonstrated the useful applications of GPR, and Resource's skill and efficiency.

2005

 

Construction Management's Rise

In 2005 the CM Division was awarded the $144 million Newark City School District-Wide Facilities Improvement Program. This win helped the CM Division gain industry-wide recognition in K-12 education. To date the CM Division has provided more than $750 million of building construction services for public agencies.

2013

 

ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System

Rii’s management system went through a series of accredited audits and on March 26, 2013 our firm was found to be in compliance with ISO 9001: 2008 QMS standards. We have continuously evolved and improved our management system over the years and today we operate under the most current ISO 9001:2015 standards.

Rii has won numerous national and international awards for our quality services and experienced team. To date, we have been awarded three International Road Federation Global Road Achievement Awards. We received an award in 2000 in the Construction Methodology Category for our Construction Management services on the Butler Regional Highway project; an award in 2008 in the Quality Management Category for our use of Ground Penetrating Radar to not only evaluate the current condition of existing roadways, but also to determine what sections of roadway can be salvaged, ultimately saving clients time and money); and an award in 2013 for the development of our innovative mobile data collector.

 A leader in the industry, Rii is proud to have received many other honors and awards, including the ARTBA Globe Award for Environmental Excellence and the Engineering Excellence Award presented by the American Consulting Engineers Council.

Our Featured Projects

Rii performed GPR testing on 47 concrete bridge decks. After the field data was collected Rii analyzed the data and provided INDOT a report within about eight weeks. This delivery time was shorter than expected or needed by INDOT. The report was thorough and detailed, yet was very easy to understand and extract useful information. Overall, INDOT has been very satisfied with Rii’s services, and we hope to work with them more in the future Pete White, Systems Assessment Manager, Indiana DOT
