Urban Building Solutions by Hank McCullough

Meet the owner Hank McCullough

Hank McCullough is founder and owner of Urban Building Solutions in Raleigh, NC. He was born and raised in Aiken, SC and then attended Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC where he earned a B.S. in Business Administration in 1992. 

After completing his formal education, Hank moved to the Raleigh-Durham area to take advantage of the unequalled opportunities there for work and lifestyle. He began working in sales, starting off in the mobile home industry serving dealers as a sales representative, and then represented a local brick manufacturer by selling material to custom builders. As the economy changed in 2007, he earned his North Carolina General Contractor’s License in order to direct his career toward what he always wanted to do.

Hank initially built custom homes in several areas of The Triangle while he lived in Southern Wake County. As the demand for new construction grew in downtown Raleigh, he began to focus on the Five Points area performing renovations as well as new construction. Loving the energy of the city, he moved into the area himself. This has also facilitated his ability to give his full attention to each job site every day. 

Most recently, Hank’s focus is inside the beltline, specializing in tear downs/new construction as well as renovations and additions. Price points are typically $700K – $1M. Each project receives a unique and custom approach that is designed to fit the present architecture of the particular neighborhood. 

On a personal note, Hank is an avid tennis player and a frequent sponsor of Raleigh Racquet Club as well as Raleigh Pro League. As a member of Hope Community Church, he serves as a volunteer on a regular basis. Hank lives in Five Points with his wife Cindy (and hound dog Huck!) and has an adult son who lives in the area.
