Welcome to Urban Infill Corporation (UIC), a leading custom home builder serving Northwest Florida. While our name may raise eyebrows, it encapsulates our core mission: the revitalization of urban spaces through thoughtful development. At UIC, we take pride in delivering top-quality, meticulously crafted homes at prices that won’t break the bank. With us, your dream home is not just a possibility—it’s a probability, even on a reasonable budget.
Founded by Robert “Chris” Vail, UIC was born from a vision to make custom home construction accessible to all. With dual expertise as a Professional Engineer and Certified Building Contractor, Chris brings a unique blend of technical prowess and practical know-how to the table. His journey began in the construction trade, where he honed his skills renovating historic homes. The intricate process of restoration fueled his passion for construction, leading him to delve into the realm of new home construction. When you choose UIC, you’re not just partnering with a contractor; you’re collaborating with an engineer who brings precision and organization from the engineering field directly to the job site.
Unlike many builders who specialize in cookie-cutter homes, we set ourselves apart by focusing on waterfront properties and old Florida vernacular architecture. Picture deep porches, roof overhangs, raised foundations, detached garages, and traditional siding—these are the hallmarks of our craft. Our homes range from $350k to $2M, ensuring there’s something to suit every taste and budget.
Thank you for considering Urban Infill Corporation for your custom home needs. We look forward to the opportunity to turn your vision into reality, blending quality craftsmanship with affordability in every project we undertake.
