Robert J. Lence became a registered Architect in the state of Florida in 1992, four years after earning a Bachelor of Architecture degree with Honors. With over 20 years of professional experience, Robert has completed designs and construction documents for hundreds of residential and commercial projects throughout the state of Florida. While living in Miami in the early 1990's he established his architectural practice and conducted dozens of post Hurricane Andrew structural evaluations, becoming thoroughly familiar with local codes which heavily influenced the contents of the presently enforced Florida Building Code. Strongly interested in the fields of structural design and historic preservation, Robert has collaborated on the restoration of several historic buildings in Miami's South Beach and Coral Gables, as well as Tampa's Ybor City. He is NCARB certified, a member of the American Institute of Architects and the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is a VA approved plans certifier. Robert is also bilingual, as Spanish is written and spoken fluently.
