Architecture + Construction + Home Inspection
A unified and efficient approach to architecture and construction. FL Design Build Inspect aka Site & Studio, Inc. was established by Frank Liebler, who is the architect, contractor, and home inspector. The Master Builder is the ancient precursor to the modern separation of the architect, engineer, and contractor. Today there has been a resurrection of the Master Builder. The unique blend of skills found in a single person, rather than multiple people with multiple opinions, makes the Master Builder process at FL Design Build Inspect highly efficient and controlled. Our clients visions are thus easier to attain. Since FL Design Build Inspect does not have to pay for or live in the homes created for our clients we are not happy unless the client is happy. We use 3D CAD software to help our clients visualize the building as the design evolves. FL Design Build Inspect specializes in ICF (Insulated Composite Formwork) and reinforced concrete construction.

FL Design Build Inspect specializes in new construction and major renovations of modern homes. We limit the number of active jobs so we can focus our attention to design/build high quality projects. FL Design Build Inspect will work in the conventional roles of the architect working with your potential contractor, or the contractor working with your existing architect. However, there are many benefits to using FL Design Build Inspect to perform the revived role from antiquity known as the Master Builder.

Master Builder Benefits:
no gap in accountability
Traditionally the architect and the contractor are not legally obligated to one another, which can create a messy situation.
minimize surprises with creative and professional advice from start to finish
greater control of the implementation of clients intended design
seamless transition from build to design phases
no time wasted by contractor familiarizing himself with the new project
cost savings through reduced fee
cost/time savings through efficiency
less time interpreting drawings
less time arguing between contractor and architect
less time fixing deficient work
less time drawing details that are already understood
less time getting changes approved by architect
Frank Liebler is a licensed home inspector / architect / contractor. He will make time for same day or weekend inspections. Frank's architecture license enables him to offer additional services for further investigation or corrective drawings if needed/requested. Between Frank's architecture and construction background he knows the details of how a building should, and should not be put together. Frank wears many hats in the building industry, and will argue that without the total of his experience, he wouldn't be as good at one job without the other.
