At Chant we have shown that there is a place in the engineering, project management, construction services and construction contracting industry for a company that does things differently. Our focus is on developing (and maintaining) our good reputation for thoroughly understanding the needs of our internal and external customers, then delivering exceptional value and excellence in every aspect of the engineering, construction management and/or other project delivery services we provide.

Chant performs a variety of roles on a relatively wide range of projects throughout North America. Our people consist of engineering, technical, supervisory, safety, estimating, quality and administrative personnel.

They like the level of our commitment, sense of urgency and dedication to performance. We differentiate ourselves from much of our competition through a culture of acting in the project’s best interest when making decisions, whether as an owner’s representative, construction manager or contractor.

We believe that forging open, honest and professional relationships with both our internal and external customers is the best way to conduct our business. We embrace those individuals who value teamwork and believe that they can provide exceptional service to all stakeholders through such partnerships. If this approach excites you, there may well be a place at Chant. We need and actively seek to have a diversity of skill sets in our company.
