Our Process

businessman looking at financial data wi

 1. On-Site Consultation

Our first step is an on-site consultation to meet you, see your house, and hear about your project needs.  We take pictures, measurements and notes to aid in our pricing.  

2. Project Presentation

The next step is to present you with an Investment Summary which includes a rough draft of the new space and line item pricing of the total cost. This meeting is done virtually. 

3. Investment and Contract

Here is where we make it official. The scope and layout have been determined.  We update the estimate to make it as accurate as possible.  With this information, we ask you to sign a contract and make a deposit so we can create a schedule.

4. Design

Now that we know the final scope, we create detailed construction drawings.  We will work together to define materials and finishes. We will make introductions to preferred vendors to help you make selections.

5. Project Delivery

For many, the most exciting part of the process. With a construction schedule finalized, we procure materials and begin the project.  During construction we regularly meet you on-site to answer any questions you may have.

6. Final Walk-Through

Just because construction is done doesn't mean we are. After project completion, we walk through the project with the homeowners to ensure they are satisfied and that no detail has been overlooked.

Urban Refurbishment

Mission:

To have people love where they live. We listen and work closely with homeowners to deliver the best plan to accomplish their goals with each project. When complete, we leave behind quality work with an experience people want to share with others.

Our Team:

Tony Hughes - Owner

Tony knows all things building and remodeling. In your first meeting with him, you'll see he's doing what he's most passionate about. Whether you have plans from an architect or interior designer you want to bring to life or just an overall idea. Tony is ready to listen and break down your project to get it off your to-do list and turn it into something you're in the process of loving. With years of experience, Tony has created long-term relationships with our subcontractors. They are extensions of what he has built his business on and people we can rely on to get the job done right the first time. 

Outside of work, Tony spends time with his wife and two kids. He loves the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, fishing, and playing guitar.

Sandi Wahl - Project Manager 

Sandi focuses on communication with all parties involved in the project. With over 15 years in the industry focusing on time management and customer service, she knows how important it is that everyone is on the same page. Sandi brings clients' ideas to life using 3D design software and coordinates the when and whats of a project.  In representing UR for the American Society of Interior Designers, she is Chair of the Programs Committee planning educational, social, and networking events throughout the year. 

Her favorite activity is spending time with her family.  However, whenever possible, she makes sure to have some live music on her calendar. She frequents First Ave, The Palace Theater, and has even traveled 1000s of miles to see her favorite bands. 

Dan Beard - Field Coordinator 

Dan's duties vary to meet the needs of our homeowners, our subcontractors, and our team. He's onsite daily to monitor progress, ensure details are being understood, and answer any questions. He keeps our project management software up-to-date so homeowners can have a front-row seat to their project without actually having to sit all day at their project. He values the safety of the homeowners' property and understands the emotion and anxiety that come with remodeling. In a constantly changing environment, you'll find Dan wears many hats throughout this process and always has a positive attitude.  

Minneapolis and Minnesota have been home to Dan, his son, and his dog for many years. He has more bikes than he'd like to admit to and enjoys meeting new people.
