Sustainable Drainage Solutions

Every new construction project has to provide some form of sustainable drainage solution, or at least prove why it cannot. From a drainage perspective, this means that any rainfall should be treated and disposed of as close to its source in order to be considered as sustainable.

Sustainable drainage solutions or SUDs take many forms from infiltration techniques using soakaways or swales, to the use of ponds, wetlands and swales. SUDs provide two functions; they allow water to enter the water cycle at their natural rate, therefore reducing flood risk whilst also ensuring that water quality is not affected by development.

Our experience enables us to choose the correct Sustainable Drainage Solution for the particular site through determining the on-site infiltration rate either through desk top or site testing and then provide advice on how this can be best accommodated within a development.

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.

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

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.

J Breheny Contractors Ltd

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.
