Company Profile
Based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Empire Building Construction has over 25 years experience in commercial construction and remodeling. Founded in 1983 by Ercell Fortney, Empire now has about 35 full-time, year round employees dedicated to being the best builder we can be. From our concrete crews to our steel erection crews to our office staff, you'll find experienced employees in every area of our company.

Over those 25 years, Empire has forged long-term relationships with some of the finest sub-contractors in the region. From electricians to stone masons to plumbers, we work together with contractors who know their trade. The end result is a finished product that is second to none. And to back up our reputation, we are licensed, insured, and bondable.

As Ercell says, our mission is "100% customer satisfaction" on every facet of every project. We get there by focusing on relationships. Most of our clients end up building another project at some time, and we want to be your contractor of choice when that opportunity arises. So when you deal with Empire, you'll always get honesty, integrity, timely communication, attention to detail, and a building you're happy with.
