About Defaveri

Building a future on humble beginnings, Eugene DeFaveri like many immigrants made his way to Canada in search of creating a prosperous life. Like many Italians and Europeans in the early 60’s following the path forged before them with suitcases in hand and their most valuable possessions of trade skills, work ethic, drive and community. Eugene began the journey of building a life.

Seasoned in masonry and concrete Eugene did what most immigrants did at that time pressing forward while breaking barriers with the continuous delivery of master workmanship.

The vision that Eugene held was to entrust a long-standing legacy that far reached his own family and community. He instilled in his children that same value and dedication. Armed with experience, education and history Roberto, Dino and John DeFaveri took on the roles that have made DeFaveri a trusted, respected and sought out construction company that has grown and expanded to include General Contracting, Construction Management, Bulk Excavation, through to and not limited to Site Services, Concrete and Masonry.

Brick by brick a company and community were built. DeFaveri has become a place for many like Eugene with the reward of hard work, excellence and craftmanship turning DeFaveri into a multigenerational leader in the industry.

Architects, Clients, trades and related professions look to DeFaveri Group Contracting in trust knowing there is always a successful outcome and deliverable. With an integrated system valued approach and project delivery, DeFaveri’s most valuable resources have always been its professional team from architectural technologists, engineers, project managers, staff and those with the boots in the field. We continue to break ground and build on that dream that started over six decades ago.
