The AURORA Awards regional design competition honored environmentally friendly, newly constructed homes and developments with Grand Awards during the recent Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) in Orlando. “Builders and utility companies, working together, combined their talents and resources to create award-winning homes that are environmentally friendly,” said Michele Harrison, a Naples builder and 2007 Aurora Awards Chair. “Their achievements are highlighted with the AURORA Award to display their distinction within the home building industry.”
The Grand AURORA Awards were presented to companies that incorporated energy efficiency, water conservation, solar energy, and green building practices into their new home construction projects. The homes serve as models for other builders to gain knowledge and techniques to emulate in the future.
Home building professionals in a 12-state southeast region received prestigious AURORA Awards for new home construction and design excellence during an industry gala.
“The AURORA Awards are the Grammy’s of the home building profession,” said Harrison. “They symbolize tremendous achievement, honor and distinction among building industry professionals.”
