Our 9 Step Process


It looks like you’re ready to take the first step towards building your dream home. Congratulations, you’re heading in the right direction.

Meet The Builder- Come see our newest display home The Hideaway Retreat

We invite you to come on in and view just what attention to detail looks like. During a visit we can outline for you why we selected this block of land, our response to it from a design perspective and the completed outcome a double storey elegantly crafted residence focusing on the likely occupiers needs and lifestyle. Alternatively please contact us and request an appointment.

Building Site Assessment & Review The Location (Your Site)

The foundations of design & building stem from the ground up. Andre the Managing Director will visit your block or home and discuss your building vision and asses the site and its surrounding environment and provide you relevant feedback in a follow up report. This service is obligation free and this can be completed on your preferred site (before or after purchase) to warrant that your design needs and budget can be achieved

Getting To Know Your Needs

During this stage we will further discuss your vision and further get to know your needs so that we are ready to hit the ground running once we start the design process. We will prepare a full design brief and work thru your budget to ensure we can deliver what we have previously discussed. We then request for your consent to start the design process with our Design team by means of committing to the “Preparation of Plans Agreement”.  

Definition of Commitment- Unless a commitment is made, there are only promises and hopes; but no plans.

The Design Stage

During this stage you will first sit down with the Designer & our team to further share the vision previously shared with Andre and then the concept planning stage begins.

Andre will remain as your main point of contact thru the design stage and he will keep you updated whilst the Designer completes his conceptual floor plans and renders.


The Reveal

This is typically the most exciting stage for all of us. We get to present the Concept plans for the first time and reveal the true potential of what your new home will look like. Our 3D renders will blow you away and are a great tool to help you visualise how it all comes together., We are one step closer to opening the door to your new home.

This is your first opportunity to study the plans and start visualising how you and your family will live in the home. During this stage our team will collaborate with you to ensure you are happy with room sizes, layouts, aesthetics and any other design features you may have in mind. We will work closely with you to manage budget and continually review and consult with you on any changes to budget that arise during the final stages of the reveal stage.

During this stage we will also be adding further detail and exploring potential finishes and material selections that may be relevant.

Planning Development Approval

The next stage of the design process is to prepare the plans and supporting documentation and submit them to the Local Council to gain the Development Planning (DP) Approval.  Our Design team works closely with Council to resolve or clarify any queries that may arise

Construction Documentation

The final designs & Council approvals in place by this stage. Our team will now finalise construction drawings, structural drawings and building specification ahead of the final contract stage.

By now we have reviewed cabinetry ideas, finishes, tiling, colours, architectural cladding materials, tapware and other important specification items that relate to your bespoke design.

Andre and the team will attend to the finer details behind the scenes and then issue you with the final costing proposal. We will sit with you ‘one on one’ and review all pre contract documentation to ensure that you are ready to move forward to the contract signing stage.

Well the Design Stage is now complete, contracts are signed and we are well on the way to initiating works on site. The final stage is to complete all certifications and prepare certified building approval documentation ready for a Building Permit with Local Council. Andre and the team will be keeping you advised of the pre-construction items that need to occur and by now the Empire Trades are ready to make a start.

This is where Concept turns into Creation. Andre and the team will be actively involved offering you their vast experience and passion to deliver you the ultimate home. We take a hands on approach to ensure that every detail is planned and executed to perfection.  Regular meetings, building progress updates, supplier material updates and reviewing trending materials continue to occur long into the build. We collaborate with you on ideas and finishes and go out of our way to ensure that you are feeling comfortable through the entire build. Be assured your home is our priority. Our entire team strive for perfection and our pride and reputation is on the line. We know one thing drives us to do better each day: We are only as good as the last home we build.

Client Testimonials

Client Testimonial | Phillip & Vicki

On behalf on Vicki and myself I am pleased to write this testimonial for Andre Malecky‘s Empire Building Company.

We have worked with Andre for over two years on a project to extensively renovate our house in Bicton.

Empire Building Company took the project from conceptual design right through to advanced construction at the time of writing.

We have found working with Andre, and his chief designer Peter O’Neil to have been a delightful experience that is delivering an extremely high quality renovation.

The attributes that we see with Empire Building Company are:

  • An absolute commitment to delivering a quality product
  • Engaged and interactive consultation with the client
  • Knowledge of “best in class” finishes and construction methods
  • Very close connection to changing design trends in the building industry
  • Excellent knowledge of building codes and management of the approval process
  • Readily available to discuss any issue at any time
  • High quality trades that are closely supervised -the quality of the work is evident before the

We have built several times, including using an architect, during our married life and this is by far the best design, construction and finishes selection process that we have experienced.

Both Andre and Peter are very “techno savvy” and this has helped both with staying in contact whilst we were overseas but also with delivering innovative options in the fast moving field of “hi tech” product roll out and developments in the building industry.

Andre and Peter are an excellent team and have been successful at the highest level in the HIA building awards having won several categories.

But the bottom line to us has been the ease of communication and the knowledge that Andre and Peter are solely focused on delivering the best quality product possible.

We have complete confidence in Andre to “get the job done” to the point that Andre managed the renovation whilst Vicki and I were domiciled overseas during a long term work assignment. Equally Peter stayed in very close contact with Vicki to ensure the best quality fit out and finishes were selected.

We have no hesitation in recommending the Empire Building Company to the discerning client who is searching for a house or renovation that is of exceptionally high quality. Whilst each project will have its unique challenges I have no doubt that Andre and Peter will deliver a “best in class” outcome.

I am more than happy to be contacted to support this testimonial via face:face, phone or e-mail contact.

Yours sincerely,

Phillip and Vicki Campbell

Client Testimonial

Andre Malecky from Empire Building Company recently completed our new home in East Fremantle. We are extremely pleased with the final outcome and the journey that we went on with Andre.

Throughout the construction process and build we were absentee clients living in Broome. Andre was always easily contactable, he stayed in constant communication with us on all matters. He always made us feel at ease that our home was being constructed in a timely and proficient manner.

Andre payed very close attention to all architectural details and the overall design of our home. He was instrumental in making sure everything worked as per the drawings therefore we now have a home that is true to the design and look that we had always envisioned. It was obvious to both myself and my wife that Andre is a true professional and knows his craft very well.

We would both have no hesitations using him again and recommending his services to any prospective clients.

Client Testimonial | Andy & Jade

“Jade and I had a vision for the original lighthouse keepers house in Fremantle. 147 years of history needed a builder that would work respectfully and patiently with the surrounding 4 bedroom antique.

Andre and his team at Empire Building Company exceed our every expectation and our now fully constructed ultra-modern back of house complements what only William Thomas Efford (first resident circa 1870 and first Fremantle lighthouse keeper) could have dreamt in his wildest imagination. If you are building choose Andre and the Empire team. Period.”

Client Testimonial | Peter & Audrey

As the 1st anniversary of our new Empire Building Company Home approach’s (July 1st), Audrey & I felt compelled to express our gratitude & share our thoughts on our 1st year at 8 Ince Road, Attadale.

The Home has lived up to our expectations in so many ways.  The open plan design gives us a sense of space we wouldn’t have thought possible on a 350m2 lot.

The inclusion of double-glazing throughout, gives the home a beautiful sense of being sealed off from the outside world, both in sound and temperature.

Quality of the finishes (timber flooring, tiling etc.) and workmanship is exceptional. The attention to detail in both design & build.

e.g.  (We have since fitted Solar PV to the home & the comment from the installers was how access from top story roof to ground floor electrical meter, was made so easy by your inclusion of a wide access duct down to electrical board)

We are still, to this day, finding small differences in the way your design & build separates our home from other friend’s homes.

The cleaver use of Shadow-line ceiling & wall plaster.

Innovative use of Concrete surfaces in high use or exterior areas.

Integration of MOX Smart home technology, giving us the ability, via a simple app, to control & monitor vital areas while away from the home,

(Lighting, Curtains etc.)

gives us peace of mind & effectively future proofing the home.

We recently had friends visiting from New Zealand, one of whom works for a well known Large Shopping Centre Multi-National, as a building designer with a bias towards new innovation.

His comment…. “You haven’t purchased your new Home,

You’ve purchased your builders idea of his own Dream Home”

Being new to the area, we’ve been making ourselves known to our new neighbours. Without exception, the comments from established owners, who were here during the build at 8 Ince Rd, have expressed their appreciation for the cleanliness of the site & courteous approach of the trades. Some going as far as saying “if we were to build again we would use your builder, Empire BC”.

As with any new construction, we’ve have had reason to call you for window adjustment and minor lighting issues, but your response and resolution has left us in no doubt that Empire has a high priority on post construction relationships.

We have also been left in no doubt, after our 1st year, that we have found our ideal Urban Retreat.

To You & all your Team… Congratulations on having the fore site to create this innovative home, well deserving of it’s HIA Award for 2015 Townhouse of the Year and 2015 Home of the Year Finalist.

Sincerely, Peter & Audrey MORAN
