HomeStretch is an Edmonton based Multi-family builder. Collaboration is our specialty, and we offer a range of services to make sure that projects are completed with care, on time and on budget.
Design Build Services - We first work with you to define the project outcomes, then design using our network of Edmonton’s best architects and engineers, and then build it for you. A fixed price is determined at the concept stage and the project is designed and built to meet that objective. You get the peace of mind that your project will meet a set of predefined standards at a fixed price.
Construction Management Approach – We join your team at the project initiation phase and work with you by providing budgeting and cost information as well as value engineering. This method ensures that the building the architect is designing can be built to your budget. Too often beautiful buildings are designed only to have owners find out at project bidding that it is way over budget. Using this methodology, we charge a small fee for services during pre-construction and a percent of costs fee during construction.
General Contracting Approach – If you have a building designed already and want someone to build it, or if you just prefer the time-tested Design / Bid / Build approach, we can do that too.

His passion is for sustainable infill multi-family and redevelopment projects.
An internationally recognized standard for creating energy efficient buildings that are energy efficient, comfortable, affordable, and ecological all at the same time. Buildings built to this standard consume about 90% less heating energy than older buildings and 75% less energy than the average newly constructed building. Todays tenants are demanding more than a place to live. Increasingly the sustainability of how their home was built and its ongoing contribution to fighting climate change are deciding factors in where to rent or buy. HomeStretch is Edmonton’s only certified passive house builder.
While energy efficiency is a fundamental component of this program, this program goes beyond energy efficiency, moving the industry toward a more holistic approach to sustainable building practices. An approach that includes the preservation of natural resources, reduction of pollution, ventilation and air quality, and the improvement of home durability.
