HISTORY AND BACKGROUND

Since 1991, EFC Developments Ltd. has provided a diverse offering of projects. A wholly owned subsidiary of EFC Aviation Ltd., EFC Developments is a separate division specializing in construction and development throughout Western Canada. We own, operate and work in the facilities we build, which has led us to gain a wealth of knowledge and insight into the requirements of the construction and development world. This insight has increased our proficiency to strategically plan and develop each of our projects.

COMPANY PROFILE

EFC Developments has assembled a team of dedicated and knowledgeable construction professionals who have the proven experience and capability to manage projects of any size and complexity. Construction development demands a very specific set of skills, processes and requirements. EFC Developments continuously works and tests these applications - thereby ensuring the most efficient of operations on every project. With over 160 combined years of construction expertise and over $100 million of successfully completed projects, EFC Developments is considered as a front-runner on any construction project.

EFC's first priority is safety; it is our guiding principle in all of our operations. We maintain a comprehensive Safety Management System (SMS) and Operational Reporting System to provide and share valuable feedback to our staff and management. This informs and improves our continuous circle of safety improvement.
