Introduction: Urban Luxe provides a better way to plan your project. Our services allow you to control the entire process, ensuring your budget and timeline remain intact. Not to mention a design specifically unique to you and your family. There is nothing "cookie-cutter" in what we do... Think of us the way you would a financial planner. They are your first point of contact for all major investments. They guide you in making responsible and strategic decisions to maximize your return on investment. We do the same thing when it comes to new construction or any major renovation. With over 30 years of combined residential construction and design experience, Urban Luxe can turn our expertise into your peace of mind. First, there are a few key problems within our industry that we directly address:​ Contractor Distrust Lack of Communication Poor Workflow & Project Management Out-of-Control Budgets Excessive Change Orders Overpromised Timelines Cookie-Cutter Designs Lack of Attention to Detail Many of these issues stem from a single contract being signed to complete the entire project before a final design is approved. How can you have a final price without the design and selections in place? Allowances are for DIY Home Depot projects, not custom design and build. It's a bait and switch that causes nothing but headaches, disappointment, and bleeding bank accounts for the homeowner. Urban Luxe addresses these issues head-on by breaking up your project into two main phases: 1.) Design / Selections / Permitting 2.) Construction and Project Management Our firm specializes in planning, organizing, and designing your project down to the smallest details. An entire design team, architects and engineers included, as well as unique material vendors all under one roof. Imagine being able to hand a builder or contractor the instruction manual to your project and receiving back a clean labor quote. You will be going into a project knowing exactly how much you will be spending, without fear of costly change orders or of exceeding design allowances (and potentially still not achieving your desired aesthetic). Urban Luxe Process: 1.) Define Project Goals - Timeline, Budget, and Aesthetic 2.) Provide Urban Luxe Design Contract and Initial Projected Price Range of Project (Ballpark Estimate) 3.) Sign Urban Luxe Contract and Start Designing 4.) Choose ALL Design Selections Big and Small 5.) Define and Document a Detailed Project Scope of Work 6.) Create Job Binder and Spec Book (Project Instruction Manual) 7.) Assist Client In Acquiring and Reviewing a Minimum of 3 "Apples to Apples" Labor Quotes 8.) Manage and Oversee Permitting Process on Behalf of the Client 9.) Contractor Kick-Off Meeting To Review Job Specs + 3 Additional Jobsite Walkthroughs During Construction Phase 10.) Optional Design Project Management During Construction Phase

I cannot recommend working with Lou & Brooke more! I've worked with them at three properties so far, and they're my go-to for any house project. They've done a full kitchen & bath reno, new flooring, a backyard remodel, and smaller projects here and there. They work well together, communicate frequently with each other & their clients, and make everything super easy for their clients. All work has been high-quality and completed on-time. Brooke's taste is excellent and everything has turned out great.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We do have hourly rates, but that is not the only way that we work. We actually prefer to do a flat rate fee once we know the full scope of the project. That way the client can feel more comfortable in knowing what they are committing to. We also try to scale our pricing, and provide discounts for larger projects.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Always have a defined scope of work for labor. That way you can confirm that all of the bids that you receive are apples to apples. The most important piece when it comes to construction labor is seeing the general contractors license number and proof of insurance. Always do your due diligence!

  • What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

    We always say that the devil is in the details and that is why we built our company the way we did. By working with us and planning your project in advance and developing a clean scope of work, you have the ability to think through all the small details before you bring someone in to start talking about labor. So many clients end up way over budget on renovations or new construction because their contract Was in place long before the design and all the little details were finalized. To us that makes no sense. In order to be properly prepared you must do your homework and we help you do that correctly!
