Avant Construction Group (formerly Opus Group) has been part of the Jacksonville community for almost 20 years. As part of our civic duty and to support the city that we call home, we have created the Community Give-Back Initiative to support, uplift, and help address needs in our Community through giving to local nonprofit organizations.
Starting in 2022, Avant Construction Group has committed to donate a percentage of the sales from each project to a local organization whose mission is to bring a better quality of life to our residents through channels such as, but not limited to, education, housing, building, and business development.

In addition to donating fund, our team loves to lend a hand. In 2021 we had the honor of renovating the warehouse for the new Delores Barr Weaver Rethreaded Campus of Hope.
When the job was done, we partnered with Earthworks Nursery for materials, and our team donated their time to shovel, dig, and plant to make the Rethreaded meditation garden a beautiful place of healing and peace.
