Building Science

We are dedicated to optimizing the comfort, longevity, energy efficiency and operating costs of your home by providing professional design services, superior workmanship, state of the art methods and top rate materials.

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” (Henry Ford). We believe that good communication can mitigate plan and specification flaws, control costs and deliver projects on time to your complete satisfaction. Our client portal software gives you access to your project on a real time basis thereby assuring full transparency on project progress, information and documentation.

Design Build

Our goal is to provide the best solution that focuses on what you need and delivering the best value for your investment dollars. We start the process by having our project development specialist and architectural designer meet with you to outline your needs, ideas and vision. The design and build go hand-in-hand to ensure that the design meets your wants and that we’re able to efficiently build exactly what the needs and design call for.

We focus on results

We approach each project with the view to faithfully serving you by delivering outstanding results. We develop a unique and exclusive relationship with you to create a tailor-made plan to meet your specific needs and budget. We are involved in the planning, execution, oversight and follow up on each project and pride ourselves on quality, excellence and on-time delivery.

We are problem solvers

Problem solving and decision making are part of everyday life on most projects. We have a process – (i) clarify the issue(s) that gave rise to the problem; (ii) decide what do we need to correct exactly; (iii) understand what everyone’s interest is in order to help prioritize the corrective action(s) to be taken; (iv) list and evaluate possible solutions and select the best option in conjunction with the owner keeping in mind the law of unintended consequences that each option may create.

We are committed to success

“Desire is the key to motivation but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” (Mario Andretti).

That is the Urbacity commitment to you!

Workmanship and quality materials

During the consultation and design phases we encourage you to choose quality products and finishes to optimize the look and longevity of the work we do. We only hire qualified tradespeople and ensure that they ascribe to our philosophy of continuing education and training.

Safety is paramount

We take our safety seriously both on-site and off. Each construction team member is required to take regular safety training courses, our on-site foreperson is responsible to oversee and enforce all safety rules and procedures and we hire third-party safety consultants to pay regular visits to each project site
