Imperium Builders is a New Orleans based family business, locally owned and operated company for more than a decade. We created the company to try new and unconventional approaches to homebuilding that New Orleans area homebuilders were ignoring, such as green building using Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs) and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs). We are happy to say that in many cases we have been among the first New Orleans area homebuilders to incorporate cutting edge materials and technologies into our homes (such as a proto-home automation center, IBM’s Home Director, way back in 1998).
Our experience working with traditional and unconventional materials has given us a broad base of experiences that we will be happy to share with you as you define the place that you and your family will call home for many years to come.
Let us share those experiences with you. Contact us today to discuss how we can turn your vision for a custom home into reality, using green, environmentally-friendly and state of the art construction materials and methods.
…Incidentally, our name, Imperium Builders, comes from our use of concrete as a home building material. As we were using concrete as a means to save energy and reduce both pollen and external noise intrusion, we became aware of how we were carrying on a very old building tradition that began with the Romans. Our name pays tribute to the world-changing application of the humble mix of water, sand, aggregate and cement to building the Roman Empire that we still marvel at today.
Rome’s imperium was the area over which it ruled, literally supported by Rome’s use of concrete as a construction material — a first in the ancient world. Our name honors their efforts to create beautiful buildings that are clean, green and build to last.
If you think we put a lot of thought into our name, just wait until you see what we can do with your home plans…
