JUSTIN TIPLER, FOUNDER & CEO

Justin leads the growing team at TIPLER, which benefits from his years of business experience and knowledge of design-led construction. Justin graduated from Manchester Business School in the UK with a Master’s in Business Finance and embarked on a career in technology, establishing several high-growth startups which he subsequently sold.

This path ultimately led him, in early 2000, to pursue his true passions…architecture and design.

Justin successfully completed a diverse range of construction projects in the UK, including renovation of 16th-century English country homes to new class A office developments, before moving to Houston. Over the past decade he has developed the TIPLER Group into an award winning multidisciplinary design and construction business.

Justin is an affiliate member of the American Institute of Architects, associate member of the Urban Land Institute, a National Association of Home Builders Master Builder and a Certified Green Professional.
