Builder Partnerships

At Urbane Design, our niche is working closely with builders to ensure projects are completed within the allotted time frame, budget, and most importantly, run efficiently.  With multiple years of experience, our designers possess the skills and know how to get the job done proficiently.  We will work directly with your homebuyer, so you can focus on getting the home built.

The process is simple; a qualified and experienced Interior Designer will meet with your buyer once the home contract is finalized.  We work efficiently in order to meet specified deadlines, meaning installation dates will be met.  Our designers are experienced assisting homebuyers and builders in the decision making process for all interior and exterior finish selections.  We start by presenting homebuyers with each selection that is included in the base price of the home, and suggest upgraded products based on their unique lifestyle needs.  We will reconcile any upgrades against allowances and include your mark-up on the difference.  Each interior and exterior selection made will be typed in a legible spreadsheet, and presented to the builder once selections are approved by the homebuyer.

We understand that the homebuilding process is often overwhelming for homebuyers, we simplify the process with patience and guidance; educating homebuyers on what will best suit their unique lifestyle needs.  We take the guess work out of the design process!  Offering professional Interior Design services in the sale of each new home will not only add to your marketability, but will allow you to stand out amongst competitors. 

Urbane Design offers fixed price packages for all building projects, including custom homes, production homes, and renovations.  Including a design service package in each new home sale further simplifies the process and is virtually effortless. Most importantly, our designers save builders valuable time.  Additionally, our services are extended to the interior and exterior design of specs and model homes.

Builder packages are estimated on an hourly rate, specified per builder.  New build custom homes, model homes, and detailed specs are calculated per square foot.  AutoCAD drawings and renderings are available at the request of the builder and are billed at an hourly rate.  Our Interior Designers can work directly with the homebuyer if preferred by the builder.

Urbane Design will work with the builder’s preferred vendors, or we can recommend ours.  Builder packages include all necessary interior and exterior selections, specified per builder, and might consist of the following:
