Jerry R. Tepe, FAIA

Mr. Tepe is a licensed architect. In practice for more than 40 years, he has been both a member and an officer of large E/A firms and a sole practitioner. His project experience ranges from single-family dwellings to large, multi-million dollar commercial and industrial facilities. As a sole proprietor, his firm specializes in building, fire and accessibility code (ADA) consulting to architects, contractors, insurance and legal professionals and private entities, including third-party plan reviews and accessibility inspections.

Mr. Tepe has been active in the code development process through the AIA since joining the AIA Codes and Standards Committee in 1987. With the creation of the International Code Council (ICC), he participated in the initial development of the International Building Code on the General/Occupancies subcommittee and was the Chair of that group for two terms. Mr. Tepe was a member of the International Fire Code Development Committee for two terms and also the IBC Fire Safety and Egress Code Development Committees. Additionally, he served a term on the ICC Code Correlation Committee.

In 1990 when the ADA was first proposed and in 2004 when the last major revision was developed, Mr. Tepe served on AIA task forces to review the proposed requirements/changes and respond to the government’s request for comments.

Mr. Tepe has held all offices at both the state level (AIANH) and the regional level (AIA New England).
