I like your build a lot. Are brakes direct mount or dual pivot? It looks like direct mounts to me.

1. Why Ultegra brakes ? Force 22 are lighter and with better clearance... cheaper too.
Pairing Shimano brakes with SRAM shifters results in a stronger initial 'bite' so less lever force to get the same braking. May result in less modulation though. That said I do find that Shimano brakes generally have better clearance than their SRAM counterparts. They (Shimano) are heavier but a hell of a lot stiffer.

Some may find the above combination of Shim/SRAM too grabby but I do prefer the on/off feel of the Shimano/SRAM pairing.
I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

Disclosure: I'm sponsored by Velocite, but I do give my honest opinion about them (I'm endorsed to race their bikes, not say nice things about them)

Looks like an XS - these Gallium Pro frames run long TT and reach, plus a long reach handlebar which might explain the short stem setup.

Looks like a nice build overall - finish built pics pls!
