“We have had the pleasure of working with Aurora on four high-profile projects in New York: FedEx Long Island City, FedEx Brooklyn, FedEx Yonkers, and FedEx Queens. These projects encompass roughly 1 million square feet of space and had construction contract values in excess of $175MM. These projects were very challenging, and all had compressed schedules. Aurora completed these Design/ Build projects under budget and on time, despite inclement weather, Owner changes, and the ever-changing requirements of the DOB, FDNY, DEC, and DEP.”
