RDH has grown through our commitment to excellence in the building industry. From a single office in Vancouver, we’ve become a truly national and international firm, but our core values have never changed. In 2015, we officially added “Building Science” to our name to become RDH Building Science Inc. For us, building science underpins everything that we do: we see it as an area of professional practice that integrates building physics with the art of design and the practical challenges of construction. As we move into the future, we will continue to develop, rely on, and share the science of buildings.
Intern architects will work under the direction of architects, engineers, and project managers in design development, construction documents, and construction administration phases of new construction and enclosure rehabilitation projects.
The intern architect’s primary duty is to prepare building enclosure-related construction document packages and to support visual communication items for client correspondence and presentations. Qualified candidates will also assist in the development of technical publication graphics and illustrations.
