Welcome to our site! You are now looking at one of Northwest Florida’s premier custom home builders, Urban Infill Corporation (UIC). The name may sound strange, but it reflects the actual “infilling” or development/re-development of land in an urban setting. UIC prides itself on quality, detailed home construction at an affordable price. We have built custom homes valued under $120,000 all the way up to nearly $1.0 Million. More than likely we can build the house of your dreams within a reasonable budget.

The Urban Infill Corporation (UIC) was founded by Robert “Chris” Vail to provide affordable custom home construction.  Mr. Vail is both a Professional Engineer and a Certified Building Contractor who started in the construction trade by renovating historic homes. The knowledge acquired from the elaborate renovations led Mr. Vail to study new home construction.  When you partner with Mr. Vail to build the home of your dreams, you not only partner with professional contractor, you also partner with a detailed engineer who brings organization and professionalism from the engineering field onto the jobsite.

Also, if you own a lot or a piece of property and wish to build a custom home, we will gladly prepare a cost estimate for a complete and engineered set of construction plans. There are lots of builders who specialize in single-story, brick, slab-on-grade, and 2-car garage out front style homes; we are not one of those. We specialize in old Florida vernacular–deep porches and roof overhangs, raised foundations, detached garages and traditional siding.

Chris Vail is unlike many contractors that I've ever worked with, and as a real estate professional that has worked with him on a number of projects, his approach is refreshing and appreciated. He is attentive and conscientious of his clients' wants and needs, and will go to great lengths to accommodate them. He is communicative, and has implemented software tools to bring more transparency into the building process - simplifying the selection process for a custom build and allowing clients to see the progress even if they're living afar. I am proud of every Urban Infill project I've been involved in!
