Community Participation & Design Principles
Auburn Communities seeks to create a transformative community asset with each of its developments. Local participation is integral to the company’s approach to design and development. Reaching out to local residents for their input regarding amenities that would best meet the community’s needs, the company designs its developments to improve the appearance of the neighborhood and fit seamlessly into the surrounding area. Community partnership includes creating jobs and fostering diversity by recruiting and training local residents as part of the construction team and hiring area contractors and sub-contractors, including MWBE companies. Recognizing the need to develop environmentally sustainable communities, Auburn Communities incorporates Green Design Principles and regularly pursues Florida Green Building Certification for its developments.

Auburn Communities connects with residents of the neighborhoods where we work, gaining insight into the needs and unique identity of each community.
For construction of its recent development, Village at Delray, Auburn Communities worked with neighborhood representatives to find and employ 15 unemployed young people from the area. Each chose a trade to work as an apprentice with the various sub- contractors. Auburn Communities provided them with hard hats, safety goggles, work shoes and clothes, tools and on- the-job training.
