Dimas Rodriguez

Associate Director & Senior Building Enclosure Engineer

Dimas is one of the most detailed building enclosure guys you’ll work with. He’s got a keen interest in Passive House design, Revit modelling, and cool computery simulations that make really good buildings.

He’s got an architectural background but found his place working on the technical aspects of building enclosures. Dimas is a recent import from the US working most recently in Seattle at a building enclosure engineering firm.

Reach Dimas at 027 271 2400 or dimas@oculusltd.co.nz. He’ll probably even answer you dangling precariously from a rock face somewhere.
