Subsidence

At Canham Consulting we have a vast experience of subsidence related damage to properties, both from our own personnel, and our "in-house" database of previously inspected properties.

Currently, loss adjusters and insurers appear to be treating these claims very much as a “process” rather than a structural engineering problem, and as a consequence our recent experience is that they do not want to investigate adequately or monitor and fully understand the problems before proceeding with repair.

In our experience, policyholders understandably want and need greater empathy for the damage to their property, as well as confidence in the technical ability of those that are responsible for resolving the problems. We believe that we have both the technical and practical experience to assist with these problems. At the current time it does appear that loss adjusters and claims handlers are sending inappropriately or under experienced staff to both inspect and diagnose the problems. It is apparent in many instances they do not have an understanding of building structures.

For subsidence related claims, our Structural Engineers and Surveyors can undertake the investigation and reporting, confirming cause and recommendations for mitigation, along with design of remedial repairs where appropriate and project manage the construction works until practical completion.
 

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.

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.

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.

Breheny Civil Engineering have worked successfully with Canham Consulting on several projects. Most recently in Cambridge at the Addenbrookes Campus where Canham’s designed a pedestrian bridge foundation, terrace foundations and infrastructure design. We have also worked together on a project in Great Yarmouth where HCV routes and access design was carried out.

We are happy with the service that Canham Consulting has provided for us and look forward to working with them again.

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.
