Waterloo Office

With over 10 employees, the Waterloo team offers consulting services including design facilitation, building enclosure commissioning, building maintenance and planning, and related areas of practice. Our Waterloo office is also the primary home of RDH Building Science Laboratories (RDH-BSL), housing our state-of-the-art research laboratory where our experts perform building science research and development projects.

Research

With RDH-BSL research facilities located in Waterloo and Vancouver, our capabilities for building science research and testing are unmatched in Canada. The most current data and findings are not only published and presented, but are also put to practical use in all of our work across North America, informing our decisions and advancing the field of building science.

Existing Buildings

For homeowners and property managers, our goal is to deliver expert solutions and advice to help you avoid surprises, save you time and effort, and provide you with peace of mind. If your building is experiencing performance issues, our team of engineers and technologists can complete whole-building investigations and condition assessments to find the source of the problem and make recommendations.

We can provide repair, renewal, or rehabilitation services for all parts of the building enclosure, and offer a construction project management approach that ensures your project is completed to the highest standards, on time, and on budget.

Our Energy team can assess your building’s energy use and provide guidance on energy saving opportunities, while our Maintenance and Planning team can work with you to develop strategies to manage your assets and prepare for the long- and short-term needs of your building.

New Construction

From concept through construction, our New Construction team has established relationships and a reputation for excellence with local architects and developers on unique residential, commercial, and mixed-use buildings. Our building enclosure consulting and façade engineering services ensure that new buildings are constructed to withstand their environment while maintaining the original architectural vision. We also contribute to Ontario’s goals of building more energy-efficient structures by providing airtightness testing, thermal + hygrothermal simulation, and energy modeling services.

Upcoming LAB Events

The RDH Building Science Laboratories in Waterloo hosts monthly LAB (Learning About Building Science) events designed for architects, engineers, and anyone with an interest in building science. Our goal is to take high-quality research and building science principles and make them fun!
