    1. Horace Leighton was certainly one of the most prominent commercial and large-house builders of his day. The Healy Project has been focusing researching master builders who erected buildings of their own design, and the top ones we found so far are Healy, Ingham, and Parsons–who combined built, we estimate, nearly 400 structures. However,we would encourage interested researchers to put together a building list on Leighton to compare to the works of the other master builders.
