Development Focused

Established in 2014, Empire Group started as a simple construction firm, building projects for clients and sub-contracting for larger main contractors. However it soon became apparent that, when clients had additional problems within their projects they were turning to us to help solve them. Empire was soon offering these additional services for new projects and quickly had the capability to achieve larger more complex builds for clients and becoming an award winning firm in 2019.

The company has since evolved into focusing on property and land development, using all the practical knowledge and expertise gained over the years to help land and property owners maximise the potential of developments.

The company has always supported it’s local community along coastal West Sussex, including working with local youth groups, sports teams and community events. The company also supports the local business community, using local trades people and services wherever possible.

Marcus Farrell - CEO - Empire Group

Marcus Farrell


Director Marcus Farrell followed his father into the building trade and started as a bricklayer.  He has always had the vision of being more than this so as to provide a better life for his family. He worked his way up until he had enough experience to build his own team and, ultimately, his own company.

Although it must make sense financially, Marcus is keen on helping where he can; changing the world just that little bit and knowing that there is always room for improvement.  One of his proudest achievements is Empire winning the Adur and Worthing Business Awards in the category of Building and Construction.  Marcus is the true definition of a hardworking entrepreneur, building the empire Group from nothing. He has gained a significant amount of knowledge not only within the construction industry, but within architecture and planning.
