BIM

Building Information Modelling, more commonly known as BIM, is replacing the traditional approach of the drawing board and Computer Aided Design (CAD). The production of fully coordinated 3-Dimensional Models is fast becoming the go to form of project communication from inception through to handover.

At Canham Consulting, our view is that BIM is only part of the solution. Any successful project relies on good, positive communication, and this is one of our strengths.

Our design concepts will often start with sketches and proposals, complemented with design meetings with various parties. This initial stage is crucially important to convey the design approach.
 
We use a suite of innovative, industry leading software to deliver our projects. By using this multi-disciplinary software, we have the ability to coordinate all of our models with external consultants to mitigate errors. Traditionally, these errors were lost in 2-Dimensional drawings but are now fully checked for spatial coordination through the use of BIM. We also use clash detection software which makes sure that all clashes are resolved.

Where there is BIM there is COBie (Construction Operations to Building Information Exchange), where we can log a projects maintainable assets, enabling us to deliver a true BIM level 2 compliant project. We have a proven track record in providing all 4 data drops required at key stages throughout the project. As per the 2016 government mandate, we comply by providing the essential items and we can guide you through the process to guarantee that you have all of the information you require at the handover stage.

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.

SMG Architects Ltd

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

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
