Warren Knowles | P.Eng.

Principal, Senior Building Science Specialist

Warren joined RDH when it was founded in 1997 and continues to play a key role in the evolution of the company.

Warren first realized the importance of integrating building science and façade engineering while working in a cold climate. It was evident to him that there was a need to make buildings more durable and energy efficient, which has led to research and development of new approaches to the design and implementation of building enclosures.

He enjoys working with building owners and other project team members to collaboratively determine creative, yet simple, solutions to help make their buildings better. His depth of knowledge of RDH’s services allows him to work with building owners and project teams to better achieve the project objectives.

Warren has led projects that have gained industry recognition, including the Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia Sustainability Award. His influence on the industry has also previously included roles as the President of the BC Building Envelope Council and Director of the National Building Envelope Council. He is currently a member of the Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia Building Enclosure Committee and recently joined the Resilience Guidelines on Health Facility Design & Operations Task Force.
