Cresco is renowned for its innovative building practices and intelligent design.

All Cresco homes are designed with energy efficiency in mind. When building a Cresco home we are able to deliver energy star level efficiency, which will save you thousands of dollars per year. Ask us how to add this to your home


Cresco finishes all homes to the same level of quality. For us, quality is one of the key elements to a home. This attention to detail has resulted in many repeat customers.


As the lead builder in The Ravines of Bedford South, our signature craftsmanship has become synonymous with Halifax’s trendiest urban neighbourhoods.


Every Cresco home is also TechReady, meaning it is wired for both current and future technologies. Find out what makes a TechReady home.


On average, 20 percent more energy efficient than a home built to code, our homes are certified with Energy Star.

There’s a reason why Cresco has received numerous awards recognizing our high customer satisfaction. At Cresco we’re here ready to repair deficiencies for your year-end builders’ warrant and to answer any questions. Our designated Customer Experience Coordinator is just a phone call away. 

At Cresco we’re always listening. We take the time to gather feedback from our previous and current customers to help create new home designs that fit homebuyers’ current needs and desires.
