CREATING VALUE THROUGH TEAMWORK
EFC Developments fosters effective teamwork with a work culture that values trust, respect and collaboration. In a construction project team work environment, people understand and believe that thinking, planning, decisions and actions are best done cooperatively. We work as a team that is always looking for more efficient ways to serve our clients. Ultimately we all share in our team’s success.
PURSUE LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Mastering new challenges ensures growth for both employee and the company. When we improve and seek new opportunities to learn, teach and add value – success will follow.
BUILT WITH PASSION
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.
Along with construction, 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 in strategically planning and developing each of our projects.
EFC Developments has assembled a construction project team of dedicated and knowledgeable 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.
INSPIRED BY AVIATION
EFC traces its roots back to 1946, to a fixed-base operation (FBO) in Calgary, AB. In the early 1970s, it was purchased by Peter Bawden, an oil man who acquired a group of aviation-related companies, among them a commercial air charter service, a flying school, and three leasing companies.
In 1978, Ken Lett – an aviation icon who flew Spitfires for the RCAF in World War II, later climbing to the rank of Major General while serving as the Deputy Chief of operations for NORAD – came to Calgary to manage Peter Bawden’s aviation assets.
In 1989, Dean Buckland joined the organization in an accounting role which expanded to Vice President of Finance. A few years later, Ken and Dean partnered to purchase the business from the Estate of Peter Bawden. It was through their leadership and vision that Executive Flight Centre broadened its product offering to include commercial construction projects through EFC Developments Ltd.
