Structural Survey

Often referred to as a general structural inspection report, structural surveys was the initial term used for a Building Survey and the two types of survey should not be confused.

A Structural Survey is similar to a First Look Survey except that the engineer or surveyor will inspect and report on the structural condition and adequacy of all the accessible load bearing elements of the property and not just a particular problem area.

The inspection will include the roof structure, chimneys, floors, walls, lintels and beams. It will also include the surrounding area and site in case there are any factors which could influence the performance of foundations such as drainage or trees.

The report will detail the structural condition and adequacy of all the load bearing elements inspected. It will identify any structural problems or concerns, any further investigations required and any remedial actions necessary to rectify the problem. Where repairs/remedial works or further investigations are recommended, the report will give an estimate of likely costs. We can also if necessary put you in touch with appropriately experienced Building Contractors.

In addition to the examples above, we consider ourselves adept at challenging projects, and would welcome new and innovative schemes for us to test our skills! Should any of our services be of interest, please contact us via any of the methods available on our Contact Us page.

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

Canham Consulting really understood our needs as a client, and the constraints and challenges of the project. They brought a wealth of knowledge and experience with them, consistently offered valued and well-considered advice. They were always prepared to go the extra mile to find workable solutions to inevitable problems. It was a joy to work with the team.

Very helpful from pre-purchase throughout building/contract management.  Sound advice and good helpful communication.

Already recommended to friends. Many thanks.

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.

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.
