Redefining residential home construction.

We’re always trying to improve our health whether it’s regularly visiting our health professionals, ensuring we get enough sleep and exercise, or watching what we eat. The goal is to live the best life, in the best health, that we can. Unfortunately, we don’t often give a second thought to the products and materials that are used in the renovation and construction of our homes, and how they affect our health. Many times we equate green building products as healthy but regrettably this is a misconception. Although a green product might be sustainable and good for our planet, it does not mean that it’s automatically good for our health. Many harsh chemicals and substances used in residential construction – and in many green products – have a poor effect on your health, and you may not realize they’re in the air around you.

Given these realities, Empire was motivated to develop The Empire Healthy Home Standard. Our mission includes finding ways to improve or surpass standard industry building practices — and improve the health and wellness attributes of a home. Our Healthy Home Standard aims to change home building with a new focus: how can your home support your long-term health. We are continually researching and auditing the market to find products that reduce or eliminate many of the harmful elements used in residential construction. The outcome? Your new City Estates II residence will be developed and constructed with The Healthy Home Standard approved products.

We’re engaged in this mission for the safety, comfort, and long-term health of the homeowner and the tradespeople that work on our sites, with no sacrifice to the quality and design of our product. We’re designing a standard to deliver the healthiest home we can with the products available today.
