Our Story

In the early 60’s, Eugene DeFaveri, an immigrant from Italy, came to Canada to create a better life for himself and his family.  With skills learned back home in concrete and in masonry; Eugene applied all of his knowledge and pushed through barriers to always perform excellent workmanship.  Eugene’s vision was to extend his skills and hard work though to his children so they could continue to sow the seeds that he had planted.  Roberto, Dino and John DeFaveri did just that – and with hands on experience, they extended their skills by educating themselves with the necessary industry applied degrees and certificates, to create a true master builder from just masonry subcontract division.

With their hands in subcontract divisions; two through four, DeFaveri has grown to become a construction company that now includes General Contracting/Construction Management, Bulk Excavation, through to Site Services, Concrete and Masonry.

With trust first, Clients and architects have always approached DeFaveri Group Contracting anticipating a successful outcome.  DeFaveri’s integrated project delivery approach is welcomed and adds great value and benefit to any member or team working alongside DeFaveri’s professional staff of architectural technologists and engineers.
