The Aurora Family

The Aurora Family

Day-to-day project management requires experience, agility, and strength, so we prioritize investing in our people and treating them like family. Construction work is too dangerous to cut corners or tolerate less than 100%, after all, people’s safety is at stake. This idea extends beyond just our employees to our subcontractors and network of on-the-ground experts we partner with every day in the tri-state area.

We only work with the best so you can too.

In addition to tracking everyone’s career trajectory , Aurora sponsors monthly team building opportunities to have some fun, blow off some steam and create experiences. Here are some highlights.

“Company gatherings are great for team building and camaraderie which I didn’t have in the past. You are heard at this company as the Vero’s engage and take part in company outings which is something I haven’t experienced. When my young son had COVID it was a rough period, I felt supported by the company in every way.”
