UrbanBuilt is a full-service general contracting firm headquartered in Baltimore, MD. We specialize in both residential and commercial new construction and renovations in the Mid-Atlantic region. Our commitment to high quality work, fair prices, attention to detail, and a service-minded approach has made us a leading general contractor in Maryland and beyond.
UrbanBuilt guides clients through every step of the construction process, from planning and permitting through final close-out. We turn empty or outdated spaces into modern, efficient and welcoming homes or places of business. We have the capacity to perform full-gut and multi-family renovations for our residential clients. For commercial clients, we provide complete tenant fit-outs, as well as phased and occupied renovations. We also have experience completing ADA Conversions to meet the accessibility standards set by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The pre-construction phase is one of the most critical stages in the building process. Before construction begins, we work hand in hand with our clients to create a shared vision and determine goals and expectations. Our pre-construction services include:
General Contracting & Project Management
In order to produce the highest quality of work on time and within budget, we provide several levels of project management and contracting services. Each is tailored to the requirements of the individual project.
Post Construction Services
We work hard to ensure the highest quality outcome on every project, but our support and service does not end there. In addition, we provide project closeout services, cover all of our work with limited warranties, and offer optional maintenance programs.
The Executive Team
Jason Watts | Sales & Operations
David Linsalata | Production & Service
UrbanBuilt was founded in 2008 by Jason Watts and David Linsalata. Their combination of business acumen and hands-on experience has allowed the young company to grow dramatically. From their beginnings in modest town-home renovations, UrbanBuilt has grown to accommodate large scale commercial franchises and multifamily residential buildings. UrbanBuilt has become a leading general contractor in Maryland and throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Both Managing Partners take an active role in every project. Jason and David maintain a commitment to UrbanBuilt’s four founding principles – reliability, honesty, integrity and quality. Together, they have built a company with an excellent reputation.
The UrbanBuilt team brought together a wonderful balance of professionalism, craftsmanship, discipline and humor to make this renovation a very rewarding experience. They worked seamlessly with our team to renovate our residence to create a beautiful home for our women and all who walk through the finished product are so impressed with the results. We couldn’t be more pleased with the work that UrbanBuilt did for us.

It has been nothing but a pleasure to work with UrbanBuilt as a development partner with Noodles & Company as we continue to expand. All work has been completed in a timely fashion and with high quality. Their communication is excellent as they guide and update us through every step of the construction process. I highly recommend UrbanBuilt.

I recently served as Project Architect on a HUD Neighborhood Stabilization Plan 2 (NSP2) project – the gut/rehab of eight very large, historic town homes – for which UrbanBuilt was the contractor. The NSP2 Grant mandated Energy Star Qualified New Home design features and many green technologies. Located in a National Historic District, these houses also required design and construction sensitivity to the original architecture… UrbanBuilt’s technical ability, leadership and collaborative spirit contributed to a very successful project which met all of the program’s complex requirements.

It was not the easiest of projects, but thank you and your team for all the hard work. I appreciate your efforts and the way your guys addressed things… with a timely, swift approach. This project is now the crown jewel of our Baltimore portfolio.

Watching UrbanBuilt transform our empty, barricaded space into a stunning new restaurant was an amazing experience. They truly worked as a team with us and the architect to bring our vision to life. It was evident from day one that they had a lot of experience with restaurant construction and really understood our needs. The end result looks fantastic. We would definitely work with UrbanBuilt again, and recommend them to others.
– Sumeet Goel, Caliburger Franchisee
Our experience working with UrbanBuilt on our newest restaurant location was extremely positive. They brought a level of professionalism and clear communication to the process that immediately put us at ease. The project ran smoothly and we’re thrilled with the final result. UrbanBuilt’s expert craftsmanship and attention to detail brought our unique design concept to life!
