WHAT WE DO
Chant has completed technical services assignments and participated in the development of, and completed heavy civil construction projects across North America.
Our corporate focus is on hydroelectric facilities. This focus is augmented by an involvement in wind, solar power, and other more traditional non-nuclear electricity generation.
Our areas of expertise include:
Providing detailed constructability assessments,
Assembling capital and non-standard maintenance project cost estimates and execution schedules,
Undertaking third party estimate reviews,
Functioning as owner’s representatives (including some or all of project, construction, design, quality and safety management),
At-risk construction management,
We have found our service offerings to be readily exportable to other non-energy related projects.
WHO WE ARE
Ted Chant has over 45 years of direct, hands on experience in the hydroelectric power sector of the North American power production and transmission industry, beginning and spending the first 20 years of his career with a major US based construction contractor.
During his formative years, he gained experience as a field engineer, foreman, superintendent, project manager, senior manager, shareholder and eventually a principle of a firm working on some of the largest Canadian hydroelectric and water management projects of the day.
Ted desired to have his own business and when the opportunity arose in late 1998, he seized the moment and opened Chant Limited’s corporate office in Aurora, Ontario. Chant Power Inc., the wholly owned US subsidiary, opened its doors in Green Island, NY in 2005.
OUR CORE VALUES
Avoiding either inaccuracy or deception and of being reciprocally open about intentions.
Being true to one’s word, or promptly honourable in warning of exceptions imposed by unforeseen circumstances.
Being actively present to hear the needs, wants and aims of others.
