Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) August 06, 2014

The Aurora Awards is a competitive award competition held during SEBC (Southeast Builders Conference). Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) sponsors the Award competition; one of the largest associations of it’s kind. The Aurora Award design competition is presented to outstanding builders, planners, architects, developers, designers, and interior merchandisers within a twelve state southeastern and eastern Caribbean region.

The design competition since its inception thirty-four years ago, continues to grow and honor residential and commercial designers and builders in 135 categories. Categories consist of Commercial, Residential, Price Point, Energy Efficiency, Green Building and many more. The builders in the categories also recognize major Team members on the project. Two Trails Inc.-Green Building Consulting is proud to be a part of fifty (50) 2014 Aurora Awards this year.

An Aurora Award can be awarded to one entrant in each of the 135 categories. However on top of the 135 categories there are Grand Aurora awards based on sub categories and one (this year there was a tie so there is two) Golden Aurora Award for the whole Award competition. This year the Golden Aurora was awarded to the best Green/Energy Efficient featured project instead of past years selection of a design project. Two Trails is proud of Josh Wynne Construction & Jonathan Parks Architect for winning the Golden Aurora this year and is happy to be a part of the team on this project.

“We are thrilled to be a part of our client’s success this year. Especially this year for the first time the Golden Aurora Award was based on green/energy efficient features whereas past years based on design. Two Trails was a chosen team member in client projects that received a combined total of 50 Aurora Awards. Our success is dependent upon our clients’ success. We love seeing our partners exceed, especially in the green categories!” stated Drew Smith, President of Two Trails Inc.

About Drew Smith | Two Trails, Inc. was founded in 2001, by an innovative builder who set out to change the methodology of conventional building science. Drew realized that the only way to change the industry was to become the resource for the knowledge on how to implement healthy, sustainable projects. He “hung up his hammer” and opened one of the first green building, consulting firms in the nation.

By helping to develop standards for the American Lung Association, National Home Builders Association, Florida Green Building Coalition, and USGBC LEED for Homes by either writing the standard or testing the viability of the standard in the field, he was able to provide his firm with a thorough understanding of the science of building sustainable, healthy, environmentally conscious, and affordable solutions for the building industry. He was “green” before “green” was more than a color. Our President, Drew M. Smith, LEED AP BD+C, was the founding President of the Florida Green Building Coalition and is the first Governor appointed Green Building Commissioner for the State of Florida. Two Trails, Inc. provides hands-on consulting making it easy to achieve certification.

About Two Trails, Inc. | Two Trails, Inc. is one of the nations premier Green Building Consulting firm established in 2001. We provide green consulting services nationwide for commercial, residential, remodeling, and developments seeking to obtain LEED certification and/or LEED commissioning by USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council), National Green Building Standard (NGBS), Energy Star by the U.S. Department of Energy, & Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC) certifications.
