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.

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.

Read Brothers Limited has dealt with Canham Consulting for several years now because of the service they give.

When our customers have design issues that require a structural engineer, we always recommend Canham Consulting.

We have used Canham Consulting to design a scheme for our new factory.

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.

I have been working on J Breheny Contractors Environment Agency South East Minor Works Framework for the past four years, and in that time the parameters of the framework have changed from having fully client designed schemes to being contractor design and build projects.

In order to respond to this change we approached Rob Panter and his team to bolster our in house resources. We found they were very willing to provide the service we require in order for us to fulfil our commitments of the framework.

We have found the service provided of the highest standards which meet the requirements of us as a contractor, and an end client that demands high standards.

Canham Consulting have always provided us with the information and documentation we require on time, which sometimes require them to work to tight deadlines.

We have always found Rob and the team to be very user friendly and look forward to a good future working relationship between our two companies.

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
