The RDH Story
RDHA designs environments that prioritize well-being for our users, promoting personal health and longevity. As modern people, we spend 90% of our time indoors, thus our quality of life is directly affected by the built environment.
RDHA believes in exceeding the building code requirements to create the optimal environment for personal health and wellness. Our evidence-based design and new building system technologies are seamlessly integrated into spaces for living, working, relaxing, and healing to positively improve user health and well-being. Our personal health and longevity philosophy includes physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being strategies. The quality of air, water, light, sleep, noise, nourishment, and comfort are critical variables that we enhance with our wellness architecture toolbox. In addition to enriching the physical space, our healthful environments nurture a more sustainable future for society and the natural world around us.
