Empire Interior Contractors are a joinery sub-contractor specialising in the manufacture and installation of bespoke joinery and associated products such as architectural metalwork, natural stone, back-painted glass, upholstery and solid surface materials.

Empire Interior Contractors was founded by long-standing colleagues, Dean Strouther & Luke Pella, who between them have over 25 years’ experience in the detailing, manufacture and installation of bespoke joinery. Having worked within the industry for their entire careers, they share a passion for joinery that forms the whole ethos of Empire’s philosophy.

From initial enquiry through to handover on site, the focus is always on offering the client a high quality service and product on time and within budget, utilising all our skills and experience to ensure that every item of finished joinery is something we would be proud to have in our own homes.

Our experienced team are committed to working collaboratively with our professional partners to deliver an exceptional service throughout the design, manufacture and installation process. We have worked hard to build our excellent reputation and continue to invest in both personnel and machinery so that we can maintain and improve on the standards we have set.

We work across various sectors such as healthcare, education and retail as well as hotel & leisure, but commercial office fit-out remains our core business. With this in mind we have recently added another ex-colleague Iain Donald to the team, Iain brings over 30 years construction industry experience and knowledge- the last 10 of which has been in the London office fit-out market working closely with main contractors and designers to make sure initial design concepts became an on-site reality.

Empire were appointed as the joinery contractor on one of my projects following successful negotiations and met the budget costs following issue of detailed drawings and offered VE options where designs were impractical. They have proven many times that they are an honest, reliable, quality specialist contractor and are a pleasure to work with.

A big thank you for your efforts at the New Victoria Private Hospital Project. Following a very late client instruction, your ability at short notice to turn your package around helped us complete the project on time and to budget. Communication from yourselves from the offset was brilliant. Initial meetings attended swiftly, drawings produced and minor comments turned around quickly, you issued regular progress photos throughout the manufacturing process, and you were actually ready before us. Install team was also very professional.
