Rabits began his architectural career in 1978 after graduating from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Architecture. He has been a registered architect in the state of Florida since 1978 and the state of Georgia since 2013. His passion in architecture and design can be traced back to his childhood years.
Bob Rabits resume includes a number of design projects on a wide variety of building types including commercial buildings, multifamily complexes, medical clinics, assisted living facilities, office buildings, restaurants, churches and single-family residential projects. His place-specific and design-oriented eye for architecture, which are reflected in his projects, have led to national and local recognition. The Lee Rhyant Dormitories for Bethune Cookman University in Daytona and the Excellence Assisted Living facility in Semoran are some of his most recent outstanding projects. Bob does a number of pro bono projects to benefit the community, including his recent work with the Habitat for Humanity project, a multifamily development in Orlando.
His fascination with building and design, combined with dedication to working on projects that enhance communities and their inhabitants, formed the mold and foundation of his company, Rabits & Romano Architecture which was established in 1986 as Rabits & Associates.
When not planning and designing for his firm, Bob enjoys ballroom dancing, golfing and watching sports and outdoor programs on television.
