Dwayne Epp


Associate Principal

“Today, our environment calls us to focus on sustainability and the resiliency of our buildings. My role at Mahlum has been to mentor project teams to address these construction challenges, finding new ways to create buildings that use their materials in an efficient and elegant way.”

In more than 35 years of architectural practice, Dwayne has been involved in a broad range of projects – from assisting public and independent schools in creating new facilities and renovating existing ones, to significant institutional, high-rise, and single family residential experience. At Mahlum, he’s worked on student housing, healthcare, K-12, and higher educational projects, making himself indispensable through his vast technical experience and onsite construction administration experience.

Dwayne leads Mahlum’s Quality Assurance program; his unbiased review across all projects in the firm improves product selection and constructability. He also mentors Mahlum’s young architects to ensure consistent and accurate documentation. Other professionals in the field have noted that Dwayne “has the experience that few in [the] industry have anymore, the interest in detailing, accuracy of specifications, as well as negotiation.”

Dwayne earned his Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Environmental Studies from the University of Manitoba. He is a registered architect in Washington.
