About us

We create inspiring new places to live. By being pioneers in our industry. By giving you more. And by caring for our environment. For 20 years, we’ve challenged ourselves to make it easier and more affordable to live green.

The Biggest Energy Star Builder in Southwestern Ontario

Empire has approximately 4,000 homes participating in the Energy Star initiative. We’ve been actively involved in this program since its inception in 2007. As an early pioneer of this greener standard, it’s become part of our culture to seek out the best new sustainable designs.

We innovate using our Empire Discovery Homes. With each one, we pilot our ideal energy-saving home, testing leading-edge technology and building solutions. Then we apply the best discoveries to all of our new homes, so you can enjoy a greener lifestyle.

Pioneering Greener Living

Energy efficient homes should be more than just an option. They should be the norm. That’s what we think at Empire. And that’s why we’ve been the first in our industry to make Energy Star® qualification a standard across multiple communities.

Better insulation. Better appliances. Greater control over temperature. It translates to a more comfortable home. The best part is, your energy bills will be lower. That means less money out the window.

The Most Awarded Green Builder in Southwestern Ontario

Our process makes it easy for us to deliver best-in-class Energy Star qualified homes. Since only 15% of Ontario homebuilders are Energy Star certified in the first place, you can feel extra good that your Empire home is years ahead of the code.

We’re happy to say that our dedication to sustainable design has made Empire the most awarded green builder in Southwestern Ontario.
