Trant understands the concept of Community and strives in its everyday work to be mindful of the true meaning of Community Engagement: the sharing of common values all with a single common aim and creating a common fellowship to the greater benefit of all.

In this aim we are sensitive to the environment in which people and businesses operate.  We actively manage our projects by prioritising works to ensure the minimum of disruption to the community. We engage with our Clients, Environment Agency,  District and Parish Councils, Local Organisations and the general public to achieve this.
