About Us

GBE Construction Inc was formed in 2012 by Steve Crouse. The company name was a subject of much debate. The initials for the company come from the names of Steve Crouse’s three lovely daughters, Gabrielle, Brianna, and Emily. They are also the designers of the company logo which because of their artwork is now one of a kind.

About Steve: Steve graduated 1st in his class in Carpentry in 1997 at the Akerley Campus of the Nova Scotia Community College and in addition received an Award of Recognition for overall marks in community college.

He has been part of the National Occupational Analysis Committee for the Canadian Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program.  red seal logo

GBE construction renovated our unfinished basement and we couldn’t be happier. Our basement was turned from an unfinished unused storage space into a fully functioning family space for our whole family to enjoy. The quality of their work and attention to detail is second to none. It was wonderful to work with someone who took the extra time to make sure everything was done exactly the way we wanted. We would recommend Steve Crouse and GBE Construction to anyone wanting the highest quality dependable work done. –P. Blakie

I can’t say enough about what a pleasure it was to work with this group, and I will be hiring them again when I do my next renovation. A good friend of mine saw my kitchen and now she is having Steve do her renovation this summer. I have no problem recommending GBE Construction to anyone –K. Fulton, Halifax

Steve came when he said he would, worked diligently, even through the awful spring weather, did a good job for a very fair price and was finished a day ahead of schedule. What more can you ask? I would not hesitate to recommend Steve and would hire him again for any future project. –Frank Doane. M.D., Halifax

I'm pleased to offer GBE Construction the highest of recommendations. Honest, fair, organized and professional. Steve Crouse and his crew have never let me down. GBE has always provided helpful suggestions, competitive pricing, arrived when promised and most importantly, delivered quality workmanship. – Cathy Lumsden-Bonnell, Client of 8 Years
