Kevin Mullen founded Empire in 1990 with a goal to provide the Western Canadian market with a unique service. One that combined a retail storefront offering luxury home products along with superior design expertise and residential construction project management services. Kevin’s leadership and entrepreneurial drive has enabled Empire to become widely recognized as the premier supplier of luxury house products and services to Western Canada. Empire operates out of a thirty-eight thousand square foot facility that includes a eighteen thousand square foot showroom along with an eleven thousand square foot mill-shop. The Empire Group of Companies have completed over 2300 cabinet installations and hundreds of renovation projects under Kevin’s precise guidance and mentorship.
Kevin’s vast experience and success in the luxury home renovation market propelled him to launch Empire Custom Homes in the year 2003. Kevin’s clientele had been asking him to complete larger and more complex residential renovation services to the point where it made sense to formally offer these services under a separate, yet closely aligned entity, and has been recognized as one of the premier builders of luxury homes in Alberta (as noted by industry peers in 2013 by the CHBA in winning the Grand SAM Award of Builder of Merit).
Empire undertakes both client driven custom home projects in various inner city locations and renovations along with speculative projects where it acquires land and finances the construction of its own residential construction projects. Empire’s homes continue set a new benchmarks in design and construction excellence in Calgary’s inner-city.
