Auld & White Constructors LLC

Celebrating a Quarter-century of Quality, Sustainable Construction

Auld & White Constructors LLC  (AWC) has proven to be one of Florida’s premier general construction firms since the company was founded in 1987. AWC built itself a strong reputation and loyal client following by stressing the importance of teamwork in all aspects of its operations. The team at AWC believes that success is determined by much more than simply delivering a project on time and on schedule. Instead, AWC aims to create a working environment that gives employees the autonomy to do what’s best for the client, leading to satisfied clients and happy, productive employees who are proud to be a part of the community.

AWC is based out of Jacksonville, Fla., and works within the surrounding area for clients in all industrial, commercial and institutional market sectors. AWC has a strong following of clients in healthcare and retail banking, which continue to choose the team for its ability to leverage an ingrained work ethic and sterling safety record to the benefit of every project.Auld & White Constructors LLC

AWC has tangible proof of its success, as 82 percent of all completed projects within the past five years were for repeat clients and 25 percent of all AWC employees have been with the company for at least 10 years. It’s not uncommon for employees to join the firm straight out of college and spend a significant portion of their career with AWC.

The company provides the range of traditional general contracting services and design-build capabilities, enabling AWC to provide a more hands-on approach to projects with tricky logistics. The team provides end-to-end service throughout the lifetime of a project with a special services group specializing in project build-outs and renovations. The special services group also provides regular facilities maintenance services and emergency repair services, which can come in handy to prepare or recover from massive flooding, wind damage, storm damage and hurricane preparedness.

Experts with On-the-ground Experience

The AWC team celebrated the company’s 25-year anniversary in 2012, and with such great longevity it’s no surprise that AWC has positioned itself as a leader of green building in the First Coast Region. AWC is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council with 13 LEED Accredited Professionals on staff. AWC completed the first project on the East Coast that was LEED certified for LEED’s School Rating System. The Bishop John J. Snyder High School classroom addition opened in 2008.

Howard Davis Associates Architects designed the project, which added 10,000 square feet and 10 classrooms to the high school campus. LEED certification was achieved through the use of low-flow plumbing fixtures, diverting much of the construction waste from the landfill, using recycled building materials, and through the use of clay-tile roofing, which reduces thermal energy gain through a high solar reflectance.

In June 2009 AWC completed work on the city of Jacksonville’s Animal Care and Protective Services Facility, the first LEED Gold-certified project in the city. The $9.7 million project provides over 40,000 square feet of space for the agency built and designed to protect the health of all the building’s occupants through the use of low-VOC adhesives and paints to preserve indoor air quality.

Stress to HVAC systems is reduced through the use of a cool roof, which reduces thermal energy gain to the building. This saves the agency money on operation costs, while low-flow fixtures and drought-tolerant landscaping reduce water consumption. The facility also includes a state-of-the-art laboratory in addition to a kennel equipped with automatic water bowl fillers, bicycle racks and storage and locker rooms. The project earned AWC the 2010 Horizon Award, as well as the Project of the Year Award from the Associated General Contractors.

Total Dedication

AWC has more recently completed work on a new Sleep Study Center for the Mayo Clinic, also in Jacksonville, Fla. The center’s 10,000 square feet includes eight sleep study rooms that use highly insulated walls to soundproof the areas between sleep study rooms and the center’s doctors and technicians.

The center was also outfitted with one of the quietest and most efficient HVAC systems available on the market: the Daikin mini split variable refrigerant volume system. The Daikin system produces the same comfort as traditional air conditioning and heating units without the need for any ductwork whatsoever, which helped the center achieve LEED Silver certification under the healthcare rating system.

AWC also put its experience in sustainable building to the test through building Fire Station 40 in Jacksonville, Fla. The city of Jacksonville reached out to AWC to build a new two-story fire station for both land-based and maritime operations that also doubles as a Storm Operations and Search & Rescue Center. AWC pulled through, delivering a structure capable of withstanding winds up to 150 miles per hour – the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane – that the company expects to achieve LEED Silver certification under the New Construction ratings system.

Later in 2012 AWC will wrap up work at yet another project anticipating LEED certification, the Technology and Training building at the Daytona Beach, Fla., division of Florida’s Blind Services, a division of the state’s Department of Education. With every certified project, the company cements its place as a leader in sustainable building in Florida. These continuous achievements grant the Auld & White Constructors LLC team plenty of reasons to celebrate 25 years in business.
