Community Builders

The #TappeCommunity doesn't just strengthen other communities through our architecture - we are continually growing our own.

Past subjects of our Community Builders Academy include:

  • Construction Administration
  • Architectural Trips/Conference Recaps
  • Revit Standards
  • Code Compliance


What better way to get kids interested in architecture? Tappé leadership provides direction for the BSA annual event where children (and their parents) learn about design, construction, permitting and city planning by making their very own buildings in a city.

Canstruction Boston

Tappé participates in the phenomenon known as Canstruction, a way for the AEC industry to support local food banks. We creatively source and execute a model based on the year’s prompt, and then donate the canned goods.

Giving Back

Our employees routinely volunteer at a number of Boston area community service centers. From Cradles to Crayons to the Open Architecture Collaborative to the Greater Boston Food Bank, members of the Tappé family love to support the communities we live in.

Community Builders Academy

On a regular basis, we gather Tappé staff together to discuss and learn. Led by an expert who helps us to engage and expand our understanding of a subject, we strengthen our in-house community.
