Urban Excellence

Urban Residential Developments have been building high quality homes and alterations in the Waikato since 2004.

The owners of Urban Residential Developments are Daniel and Bronwyn Klinkenberg and they take pride in providing an exceptional combination of high quality workmanship and excellent customer service.

Prior to launching Urban Residential Developments Daniel was a Project Manager in the building of the Five-Star Sheraton Bora Bora Nui Resort in Tahiti, which is famous for its 120 luxury overwater bungalows and has been described as “the most exclusive luxury resort to open in French Polynesia in the past 40

Daniel’s project management experience, “eye for detail” and exacting standards has provided him with a unique skill set that flows through all aspects of his business, starting with his contractors who he personally selects.

Shaun Cooke from Cooke Roofing took personal responsibility for overseeing the installation of the Metrotile Shake Textured Charcoal roof on the Urban Residential Developments Serrano Show Home.

Shaun has been installing metal tiles for 16 years and is an expert craftsman. During this time he has
progressed from being a labour only contractor, to owning his own contracting company and becoming
a Metrotile Distributor.

In the last three years Shaun and Catherine Cooke have built Cooke Roofing into a highly successful
roofing company and Shaun is highly regarded by his builder customer base. The quality of Shaun’s workmanship shows through on the Serrano Show Home roof with the installation of the tiles, valleys, ridges and flashings being undertaken to a very high standard, in keeping with the quality expected
by Daniel from all his contractors.

However the Metrotile Shake Charcoal roof is only one of the features that make the Serrano Show Home special. The contrasting weatherboard cladding and stonework complement the contemporary colonial design of the house and provide it with exceptional style and visual appeal.

The Serrano’s grand entrance way draws you into a welcoming open plan house with plenty of space, a designer kitchen and luxurious resort-style bathroom and bedrooms.

The mix of classic and modern designs have been brought together to create a home that has the highest quality decor, function and comfort and a timeless elegance.

Daniel’s high standards have also been recognized by his peers. In their second year they entered the very competitive Masters Builders House of the Year Awards receiving a Gold Award, a Category Award and a Supreme Award.
