Chris Arnold, Project Manager

Chris left the frigid Mid-West in the early 2010’s to seek a career in Florida’s construction industry working on commercial projects initially. After many successful years working his way thru large stadium venue overhauls – he transitioned to the custom residential market where his appreciation of the fine detail work required to finish a luxury class home has evolved. He finds being a hands-on manager - overseeing the conversion of an empty lot to a one-of-a-kind product - very rewarding. He’s passionate about creating relationships with customers & building partners and is a solution seeker!
