On the recommendation of a fellow independent House Builder, we instructed Canham Consulting to carry out the Civil Engineering design for our major new development of 155 homes at Brundall. Our experience has indeed been a refreshing change and we have found their team to be very capable of adopting a collaborative approach to the design, furthermore they fully understand the need for a holistic overview in order to mitigate the inevitable conflicts and frustrations which are now all too common in the modern detailed planning process.
I have used Canham Consulting now on numerous occasions to undertake structural surveys for me in the early stages of my projects. They have always been swift to attend site and have a written report back to me within days and I cannot stress how important this is to me in order to kick start projects. The level of information is exactly what I require, along with exceptional customer service to match. I will continue to work alongside them in the future.

Most recently in Cambridge at the Addenbrookes Campus where Canham’s designed a pedestrian bridge foundation, terrace foundations and infrastructure design.

We are happy with the service that Canham Consulting has provided for us and look forward to working with them again.
We have worked with Canham Consulting for a number of years on a complex scheme, which has thrown up a number of challenges in terms of drainage engineering, flood relief and fuel storage solutions. Our Consultant is contactable, commercial, and realistic and his team have risen to the challenges to produce honest solutions to some difficult problems. We are impressed with the work and with the support that has been given to us as clients and would most definitely be utilising their service again in the future where the need arises.
As architectural designers and planning consultants, we are often thinking outside the box when it comes to design, and often there comes a time when we require the help of a structural engineer to make our vision a reality.
It is very important to both us and our clients that we can work closely with an engineer to find a no-nonsense and practical solution to solving structural problems and that’s where our long term relationship with Canham’s hits the mark every time.
Time and time again, they have proved to be fast and reliable, and their refreshing pragmatic approach to problem solving always helps to keep our projects moving forwards with as little fuss as possible.

I am a sole practitioner architect in Norwich with over thirty years experience, the last fifteen of which have been spent running my own Practice, with a speciality in historic building work.
I have worked with Canham Consulting regularly over the last twenty years and they now provide structural advice on all my projects. During this time they have always provided an excellent engineering consultancy service. I have worked with various members of their team, and the service I have received has been and is exemplary. The scale of my work is relatively small, but they have always responded quickly and have the ability to contribute positively to a design at all stages. In addition they have always been a pleasure to work with and their friendly approach runs right through the Practice

We have worked with Canham Consulting on various projects over the past ten years and have always been impressed with all of the services offered.
We have found their ‘on-site’ design advice especially invaluable to us as we take apart old and often complex buildings. The last thing we need is a crew of tradesmen waiting around for design advice when we find an unexpected ‘something’ on site.
Canhams haven’t let us down and that not only impresses us, but also keeps our client entirely satisfied. Keep up the good work.

At first we wondered why we needed the services of Canham Consulting to oversee our rebuild but very quickly we realised how much pressure and worry they took away from us. To have builders, contractors, electricians, plumbers etc, etc, managed in a professional manner, making sure that jobs were completed how WE wanted them doing and at the same time keeping a check on all the costings was such a huge relief.
Professional company who take care to look after their client’s interests. Well worth their fee.

We have worked with Canham Consulting over the past ten years, their approach to structural problems has been creative and their service prompt and professional.
Much of our work involves contemporary insertions into listed buildings and Canhams are sensitive to traditional structures while being appreciative of a contemporary approach to design.
Canhams offer an approachable service, a dialogue to discuss possibilities to enable concepts to come to fruition stretching the building and structural innovation to deadlines and mindful of client budget.

As innovative developers we have always found Canham Consulting to be ready to embrace and support any new ideas that we throw at them. They worked with us to develop the idea with a sound and sensible knowledge base together with a practical approach.
When we developed and patented a new Passivhaus building system, Canham were engaged with us at the beginning with practical technical advice and encouragement. We have had and hopefully will continue to enjoy a valuable working relationship with them.
