Our journey

In September 2022, we became employee-owned trust, which means our people have a controlling interest in Trident and its future. We believe it is important to listen to our people and we encourage everyone at Trident to have their say and get involved. We have created various committees that feed into our senior directors, ensuring all voices are heard. The committees are voluntary, meaning everyone can get involved, from across all areas of the business, bringing together a plethora of experience and knowledge.

Trident in Numbers

“It would be no exaggeration to say that 2022 marked an epoch in the history of Trident Building Consultancy. It has been a year of tremendous change, and one that has set the foundations not just for the future direction of the business, but for our renewed values and ethos, and the way in which we regard and appreciate one another. I firmly believe this was the start of something monumental for Trident and we will only build on that.”
Dan Roe, Managing Director
