RDH is committed to stewardship of historic places by providing high quality conservation services combined with our leadership in building science. Our focus is to help clients make informed decisions that lead to durable buildings.
Whether you are an owner wishing to showcase your landmark property, an architect adapting an existing building for new use, or a developer wanting to ensure your project has lasting durability, our building science and heritage conservation experts at RDH bring an unmatched depth of experience to develop innovative solutions.
As a leader in the building science consulting industry since 1997, RDH will be your historic building project’s trusted advisor, providing leadership from an initial building condition assessment, to design development, construction documents and tendering, then through contract administration and construction management. With 9 offices across North America, our team of experts include architects, building science specialists, structural and mechanical engineers, construction managers, and energy modellers on staff. As a result, we provide a wide range of services not typically available from other consultants.
We engaged RDH Building Science Inc. to assist us with a heritage preservation project for a building that was severely compromised. What was seemingly an overly complex problem, our goal of preserving the rich history of the building was reduced to simple and clear directions for us by RDH. Their deep knowledge, connections and respect within the industry led us to a brilliant solution. RDH seamlessly stepped in to handle the details, communications, and technology for the exterior building repairs, allowing us to focus on the development and the big picture. For us it was an “ah ha” moment: why didn’t we engage RDH sooner?
