Lee Arsenault, president of Jacksonville's New Leaf Construction has won The Florida Home Builders Association's 2016 Builder of the Year award, according to the Jacksonville Business Journal's Derek Gilliam.
Part of the award was based on Arsenault's work with codes experts to ensure the Florida Building Codes.
“In addition to his home building commitments, Lee spent an incredible amount of time this year digesting amendments to the 6th edition of the Florida Building Code,” said Rusty Payton, FHBA CEO/Chief Lobbyist. “We express our sincerest gratitude to Lee for his work that in turn saves Florida home builders an average of over $7,000 for each new home construction. He is a true leader in the building industry and we applaud him.”
