EFContract is part of EF Group, an international general contractor founded in 1929. EF Contract, founded in 2008, is formed by a team of architects and engineers specializing in design, architecture and constructions, and creates spaces with a focus on the customer experience. At the center of every activity – the true reference point for clients – there is project management, meaning constant, precise control of progress, first in the design phase and then in the implementation. The Project Manager is the key figure. EF Contract has an international approach: it can formulate and put into practice projects at all latitudes, thanks to a network of partnerships in Europe, the Americas and Asia. EF Contract has worked and continues to work with large clients. Over the years the firm has gained a reputation that has allowed it to act as a partner, among others, with Lavazza, Luxottica, Intesa Sanpaolo,B&B Italia,Stellantis, and to create important structures in collaboration with outstanding names in architecture and interior design. EF Contract has developed expertise and references in many different sectors: retail, hospitality, office and corporate facilities. Organization, design culture, creativity and flexibility: for EF Contract consistency means all these factors put together.

From the environment to governance, social responsibility as the principal value of EF Contract 

Concrete and measurable sustainability

Sustainability is a strategic asset for EF Contract. In 2023 the group will publish its first Sustainability Report, and will continue to invest to be responsible and competitive at the same time. In a market of three-dimensional communication that requires partners to make concrete commitments in the direction of sustainability, EF Contract responds with a program that does not address only materials and consumption, but also extends to social and governance principles of the company. Certifications represent an ID card with which

to enter large and multinational corporations through the front door. They are the factor that encourages change throughout the value chain. Two recent examples of the commitment of EF Contract: in the project conducted for Lavazza, from 2020 to 2022, a specialized agency measured the carbon footprint, finding it reduced by 14%; while all the furnishings for the retailer JT International are free of glue, assembled with interlocks, where the PVC utilized is of vegetable origin and recyclability reaches almost 100%.

Contract and communication

For the Lavazza Museum, in collaboration with the RAA studio in London, designers of the project, EF Contract put all of its expertise to use in the working of materials, the creation of spatial geometries, the implementation of lighting systems and the creation of perfect custom logistics structures

in the spaces. All with installations and settings that range from professional to playful, physical to virtual. EF Contract’s sensibility regarding materials is matched here by knowledge of the digital dimension, in an effective combination of great impact. The result is a stimulating spatial pathway.

EF Contract for Excelsior Hotel Gallia

The highest degree of luxury

sector that has gained worldwide acclaim. EF Contract was called in to create all the facings and paneling of the Katara Royal Suite, an example of the highest degree of luxury.

EF Contract for Intesa Sanpaolo

Great architecture makes history

Another major achievement of EF Group: in the magnificent Palazzo Turinetti, long-term headquarters of the Intesa Sanpaolo bank and Gallerie d’Italia in Turin, the new colonnade entirely in wood, designed by Michele De Lucchi and AMDL Circle, was

engineered and installed by EF Group. This is an example of pure, evocative architecture, where the world of museums meets contaminations from the hospitality sector. The ability of EF Contract to shape materials in custom projects is seen here at its best.

EF Contract for Fameccanica

Space for space

The new headquarters of Fameccanica, made from A to Z by the Turin-based contractor, is the practical and ideal representation of the capacity to deploy refined technical design. A major “aerial” effort, with structures that have not only the task of interrupting and formulating spaces, but also of becoming elements of interior and exterior architecture.

A technical lighting project that chooses the path of understatement, without compromises on the insertion of light & tech décor in perfect harmony with the company’s core business. A design entirely organized in shades of white and gray with green inserts, confirming the efficacy of the cross-strategy approach of EF Contract.

Temporary since 1929, contemporary since 1929

EF Contract also has expertise and ability in the field of temporary architecture. At the Fuorisalone in the Tortona district, for Peugeot Design Lab the firm produced a spectacular technological system of cables – in connection with a pianoforte – that lit up and changed color in relation to the music played on the instrument.

A company that knows how to convey its values in communication, and in relation to its clients. To create stable, productive commercial relationships

Born as a “physical” company, EF Contract has rapidly adapted to the times and the changes in progress.

To stay in step with clients belonging to increasingly “digitaloriented” sectors – especially those of automotive products and eyewear – EF Group has developed in-house expertise in order to successfully deploy digital channels as a tool of communication of the firm’s projects, and as a key factor in client relations. The result is “phygital”: a perfect mixture for coordinated and successful communication.

In 2023 EF Contract, for a Swiss company, will create a set of over 2000 square meters and its perfect digital version: a digital twin, a precise copy but in a virtual, live and interactive dimension, where it will be possible to interact on all levels.

Design speaks to the world

EF Contract, with its standard of excellence, is behind the implementation of D Studio, the new and innovative flagship store in Milan of B&B Italia, together with the sister companies Flos, Azucena, Arclinea, Maxalto and Louis Poulsen. This is a work of great precision, in perfect harmony with the architecture by Locatelli & Partners and the interior set-up created by Piero Lissoni. Here EF Contract has made the divider structures for the spaces, partitions and many horizontal elements made to measure to display the complements of the companies in the group. All the custom structures reveal and enhance the professional know-how of EF Contract.
