Recognized as one of the premier builders in Northeast Florida, Aurora Builders has built a solid reputation for quality craftsmanship and overall customer satisfaction in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, and the surrounding Beaches communities.
Committed to maintaining a low volume approach to home building, Aurora works closely with each customer, from the earliest stages of conceptual design to the selection of materials and finishes to align with their desired budget.
We all dream about living in that perfect home – a retreat, away from the noise and distractions of the outside world, where we can find warmth, comfort and security in the company of friends and family.
The home should have all of the functional rooms and interactive public areas, while providing isolated quiet zones and restful private spaces.
Beyond simply being a place to eat, sleep and relax, we want the home to integrate into its surroundings and stimulate the senses with enticing outdoor spaces.
Aurora Builders has dedicated itself to maintaining a low volume approach to home building in order to devote more time to our valued clients during the important planning and design stages of their homes.
Through our participation in the design process, the owners benefit from the combination of architectural creativity and functional practicality, while having a home designed specifically for their lifestyle.
Embarking on the construction of a new custom home, or the renovation of an existing home can be a daunting task for a homeowner. Aurora gladly walks homeowners through every step of the process, from understanding their initial concept and desires to partnering with the design professional to craft a home within their budget.
For us, the building process is simply the final step in delivering a custom building experience for our clients. Aurora Builders has been exceeding expectations in personal service and quality craftsmanship for over 20 years.
THE AURORA DIFFERENCE
Lasting Memories Are Found in the Journey
While many builders pride themselves in the vast number of homes constructed over the years, Aurora derives satisfaction in knowing that it has helped just a handful of valued customers enjoy a truly custom building experience each year. We believe that lasting memories are found in the journey, not simply in reaching the destination.
The cornerstone of Aurora Builders is our dedication to low volume. We want each of our clients to feel as though they have their own personal builder working for them. The sterling testimony of so many of our past clients reveals their satisfaction with Aurora during every facet of the journey from concept to reality.
By choosing to build just a few homes each year, we are able to devote more time upfront with our clients during the important planning stages. We also spend more time on-site during construction, ensuring quality workmanship and attention to detail.
There is no substitute for expert supervision on a job site. Aurora employs the very best personnel to accomplish this task.
Each project is staffed by a knowledgeable field superintendent who is supported by an in-office project manager.
requent communication and personal service is provided by our friendly office staff who assists each client with billing inquiries and the helpful coordination of material selections.
In addition, our preferred showroom vendors are carefully selected for their hospitality and professionalism.
Building or renovating a home can be a very stressful experience for the owner, with so many decisions to make, scheduling deadlines, cost overruns, and occasional setbacks.
Aurora tries to minimize these occurrences by actually involving the client more closely in the process.
We utilize BuilderTrend as our on-line communication software to connect our customers with every aspect of their building project.
They are able to check the weekly schedule, verify selections, review and approve change orders in advance, and see photos of the progress of their home, regardless of where they live.
Aurora Builders is recognized as a leader in the high-end custom home arena, building homes of “Uncompromised Elegance.”
Our niche market includes clients who desire to have their dream homes designed and built as a long-term investment for the future.
For the owner who is very particular about quality materials, custom installations, low maintenance, high performance, and new technology, building with Aurora is the logical choice.
AURORA HIGH PERFORMANCE HOMES
Aurora Builders constructs only high performance homes utilizing the latest in energy efficiency and sound building techniques. Our homes meet and exceed the structural requirements of the hurricane code for coastal construction.
We utilize advanced building methods to block air infiltration and water penetration, while focusing on the integrity of the exterior wall to withstand the harmful effects of weather and the environment.
We stay informed about the latest advances in technology and materials to provide long term solutions for operating the home in the most efficient way.Aurora has experience with solar energy and photo-voltaic installations, geothermal technology, energy optimization and stored energy units.
Nearly all of our homes incorporate some degree of home automation to control cooling and heating units, lighting controls, security systems and audio/video devices.
While it is true that architects design homes and contractors build them, we believe that the most successful endeavors occur when the team approach is chosen.
Aurora Builders strongly encourages our clients to explore the benefits of blending the creativity and skillful detailing of the architect with the deep expertise and logistical input of the contractor during the plan design.
When the interior designer and landscape architect are added to the mix, the result is a well-conceived plan that addresses site orientation, lifestyle design, sound building practices, and creative solutions.
In years past, the standard procedure for having a custom home designed was for an owner to choose an architect. They would have a house designed with all of the space and features they desired, and then choose the latest materials and trendy installations.
After soliciting competitive bids from three or four contractors, they would be shocked to learn that the bids came back well over budget.The owner would be left with no other alternative but to cut back the square footage and change the material preferences in order to build within budget.
Energy Efficient Design on the home
Aurora Builders recognizes the importance of building energy efficient homes and the impact we can make on reducing the net operating cost of a home.
By addressing specific design considerations and materials early in the process, we are able to minimize the utility load on the home.
Careful orientation of the home on the building site, together with deep roof overhangs, tinted windows, and deliberately placed landscaping all contribute to naturally shading the home against the heat of the mid-day sun.
Green building describes the conscious effort to consider protection of the environment and the health of the occupants when constructing or improving a dwelling.
Aurora Builders is the leader when it comes to advising our customers on ways in which they can be energy efficient with their new home or home improvement. We believe in being environmentally sensitive and mindful of the impact of our material choices on our limited natural resources.
Aurora Builders incorporates Green Building initiatives to address energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, water conservation, a reduced demand on our natural resources and protection of the environment.
Having earned the designation of Certified Green Professional (CGP) from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Aurora team stays current with the latest eco-friendly products and installations to advise clients in choosing solutions for a healthier environment within the home.
Energy-efficient initiatives include expandable spray foam insulation to seal and condition the attic, low-E tinted windows to lessen the heat transmission into the home, dual-speed air handlers to run more efficiently at lower speeds, L.E.D. lights which illuminate using lower wattage, and tankless water heaters that only power up on demand.
Improved indoor air quality is a concern for all homeowners, so Aurora Builders strives to create a healthy living environment. We use low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) materials which emit lower levels of gasses into the home from everyday materials such as paints, sealants, cabinets, and flooring products. Advanced allergen filters control dust particles and pollutants, while dehumidification devices manage the humidity within the home.
