Co-op Students + New Grads

We are always looking for enthusiastic students who have some practical field experience in construction and basic education or training in building science engineering (building science; structural and mechanical engineering; or architecture). Successful student applicants have the opportunity to work with a variety of staff on a variety of projects that include research and field work. We currently have relationships with the building science programs of University of Waterloo, University of Toronto, and BCIT as well as engineering programs at a broad array of schools in Canada and the United States.

Many of our new graduate hires have come through our co-op student program. However, we encourage applicants from programs with which we are not as closely affiliated to apply as well. New graduates will have the opportunity to be mentored by some of the best minds in the industry while building a wealth of positive experience and working toward professional designations.

Experienced Professionals

We hire engineers and technicians, with a preference for those who have hands-on experience in building science engineering, construction and architecture. If you are an experienced professional in the building science field, RDH can provide an opportunity to grow your career to new heights.

Our dedication to research means staff at RDH are always discovering new best practices on a variety of building science subjects. We disseminate information through RDH University—biweekly learning sessions that keep our team ahead of the curve. We also encourage continued learning and development for all of our staff through attending conferences, continuing studies, and participating in other learning opportunities.


We hire dedicated professionals in Accounting, Finance, IT, Marketing, and General Operations who support the business every day. Professional development is as critical to our Operations team as it is to our technical staff, and working at RDH provides the chance to learn in the office every day as well as through regular courses and training opportunities. Operations staff are given ample opportunity to grow into more senior positions as their skill sets improve and the company expands.


RDH makes buildings better through the integration of science with design and construction expertise.


RDH is located in some of the greatest cities in the world. Our offices, with more than 200 staff, are located in Vancouver, Victoria, and Courtenay, BC, Toronto and Waterloo, ON, as well as Seattle, WA, Portland, OR, Oakland, CA, and Boston, MA. With the variety of locations, staff are exposed to unique building science challenges specific to each region.
