Aurora allows you to predefine jurisdictional requirements, such as roof setbacks. Whenever you create a new design, Aurora will look up the relevant jurisdictional information and associate it with your design.
To create a new Jurisdiction:
1. Go to your Database in the top menu of your Aurora page.
2. In the left hand side bar, click on Jurisdictions.
3. Click on Add Jurisdiction. You can either create a state-wide Jurisdiction (select State from the Type dropdown) or tie the Jurisdiction to a location (address).
On the next screen you can specify the following settings:
- Name: The name of the jurisdiction
- Type: The type of the jurisdiction (either State or Local)
- State: The state this jurisdiction applies to (only available if Type is State)
- Address: The address (location) of the jurisdiction (only available if Type is Local)
- Setbacks: The setbacks requirements for this jurisdiction
- Building Notes: A free form text field for any information that may be relevant during the roof modeling process. Aurora will make this information available to designers in
Site Model → 2D.
- Design Notes: A free form text field for any information that may be relevant during the roof modeling process. Aurora will make this information available to designers in
