The prestigious design competition is affiliated with the Southeast Building Conference (SEBC) and the Florida Home Builders Association (FHBA) and recognizes outstanding residential and commercial-housing professionals throughout the southeast.

Sabal Homes was recognized for its work with the Firethon model and the Camelia model, both of which are featured homes in the Summers Corner neighborhood in Summerville, SC.

The Firethon model won an Aurora Award in the Best Single Family Detached Home (2,500 to 2,999 sq. ft.) category, while the Camelia model won an Aurora Award, a Grand Aurora Award and the Best in State Award for South Carolina in the Best Single Family Detached Home (2,000 to 2,499 sq. ft.) category.
