Roger Papineau Appointed to Represent Residential Builders

Longtime MAHB member and construction code guru Roger Papineau has been appointed to represent residential builders on the State Construction Code Commission. He replaces MAHB member Don Pratt who served on the Commission for the past 12 years, eight as the Commission Chair.

Roger been active in the creation, promulgation and enforcement of codes on the national state and local levels and has served several times as the chair of the MAHB’s Building Code Committee. As a member of the Building Officials Code Administrators International and its successor the International Code Council (ICC) Roger has attended and testified at almost every public hearing and final action hearing held by the ICC starting in 2001 through 2009. There are four such hearings in each three-year code cycle. These hearings run between 8 to 14 hours each day and last anywhere from seven to twenty-one days.

On the state level, Roger represented home builders on three state-appointed Building Code Review Committees and two Energy Code Review Committees, serving as the chair for the 2009-2010 energy code review committee.

Our congratulations go out to Roger and our thanks go out to Don Pratt for his many years of service to the industry.
