Graham works across a wide spectrum of RDH’s core practice areas and is directly involved with New Buildings projects, Existing Buildings investigation work, and research related to building materials and building enclosures across North America.

He regularly works with building product manufacturers and other clients on product research and development, performance monitoring, forensic investigations, and field testing. He also works closely with architects and developers to support the design of high-performance building enclosures and façade systems. Graham is directly involved with the majority of RDH’s mass timber and high-rise wood building projects and instrumental in leading industry research, risk management, and façade development for these new wood buildings.

Graham is an industry leader in measuring, evaluating, and modeling of the thermal and hygrothermal performance of building enclosure systems. His master’s degree research and thesis focused on the in-service performance of rainscreen wall assemblies in the Pacific Northwest, and the research has resulted in several publications and practical recommendations for the construction industry.

He is a leader in knowledge sharing and is regularly invited to present at conferences and speaking opportunities around North America on a range of building science topics. He also contributes to the education of the industry through the development and delivery of best practice guidelines and bulletins.
