GTA-based builder and developer Empire Communities has been named the 2015 Home Builder of the Year by the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) at the 2015 Awards of Distinction. Empire’s Eau Du Soleil waterfront community was also awarded Best Website (Builder or Renovator) and Best High or Mid-Rise Project Sales Brochure (4+ storeys).
“We’re honoured to have been named the Ontario Home Builder of the Year by the OHBA,” said Daniel Guizzetti, co-founder, CEO and President, Empire Communities, in a press release. “This speaks to our commitment of building inspiring new homes and neighbourhoods of enduring value. We have built our reputation on our core values of caring, optimism and trust, which can also be seen with our corporate responsibility initiatives and exceptional customer service experience.”
Over the last 20 years, Empire has built over 10,000 single family and high-rise homes across Southwestern Ontario and the GTA, and has been honoured nearly 100 times with both domestic and international awards in the categories of design, marketing and sales.
Empire is also known as the largest Energy Star homebuilder in Southwestern Ontario and is one of few to offer Energy Star certification as a standard in all its single family homes. The company’s commitment to building energy-efficient homes has led to it being named Green Builder of the Year by both the HHHBA and BILD.
