J. PATRICK KERR, ARCHITECTS, INC. AIA
HISTORY AND QUALIFICATIONS


The architectural firm of J. Patrick Kerr, Architects, Inc. AIA is a small, design-oriented architectural firm with a personal & professional service philosophy of practice. The firm was established in 1979 by J. Patrick Kerr after spending the previous five years as principal in a 17-person organization.

Having practiced as principal in small, medium and large architectural firms, the individual practice of J. Patrick Kerr, with a small staff of six people, has established what we consider to be the optimum balance of size for selected projects that best serves the client.

Automation of specifications and utilization of Computer Aided Drafting, as well as other fairly sophisticated hardware & software for the profession, has allowed the office to remain small and still produce up to seven million dollars a year in construction cost volume on time and within budget.

J. Patrick Kerr is the only architect west of Louisville to receive two American Institute of Architects awards for design excellence for his work on the office facilities for Westvaco and the design of Fire Station No. 5 in Paducah.

Renovation and addition work comprises 50% of the firms’ volume, while 40% would be new structures and 10% studies & consultations. Project types vary, but in general are categorized as commercial, industrial & institutional projects. The firm has maintained a healthy client mix of private, public, state, federal and industrial clients through the years and remains proud of their reputation to “Get the Job Done”.

J. Patrick Kerr is registered in KY, IL, MO & TN and holds an NCARB (National Council of Architectural Registration Board) certificate.
