He trained in the office of his father, architect James H. Windrim. He was elected to the Philadelphia Chapter of the American Institute of Architects in 1901, and became a Fellow of the Institute in 1926. He practiced for over forty years.
He designed more than sixty buildings for the Bell Telephone Company, and more than thirty for Philadelphia Electric Company, including the massive power station in Chester, Pennsylvania along the Delaware River.
For John Wanamaker, he designed the Wanamaker Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia (1903), and "Lindenhurst" (1911), Wanamaker's mansion in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania. For son Rodman Wanamaker, he designed the Wanamaker Memorial Bell Tower and Mausoleum (1908) at the Church of St. James the Less. For the Wanamaker Store, he designed the Lincoln-Liberty Building (PNB Building) (1930–31).
