5 stars

Our experience working with Empire was exceptional.

“Our non-profit organization decided to build our new baseball field without a general contractor or engineer. Needless to say there were some hurdles to overcome. After the winter storm last April our schedules were very tight and fluid. Empire did an excellent job working with our schedule to keep our project on track. Due to Empire’s flexibility and dedication our kids were playing baseball by mid May at the facility. Thank you Empire for being a valuable asset to our project.”
