Happy to help

Our competent advisors liaised directly and frequently with Grand Union until the company’s exact requirements were established and realised. Using the complete site list and by acquiring understanding with regards to what Grand Union Housing Group needed from a consultant, we were able to present the group with an extensive set of offers for an assortment of circumstances and durations.

When the group compared Trident’s submissions with that of their current consultant, it was clear to see we were the better match.

Perfect Partners

Our meticulous assessment of each client’s needs means we get to the root requirements for that particular company. In this case, Grand Union Housing Group was delighted to employ our consultants to ensure that they not only remained within budget but, with our technical expertise, stayed under budget for two years.
