BIM

Some of us can remember when these drawings were produced on the drawing board by hand, some have learnt their trade on Computer Aided Design packages. There remains a strong argument that the best designs are not produced in a blinkered world of software, but from the creative pencil of an experienced Designer!

The Industry is now moving away from this traditional approach, with the production of Building Models now being the intended communication. This way of working is often given the title BIM, which for many stands for Building Information Modelling (or Management).

A BIM Model has many advantages over its traditional 2-Dimensional counterpart. The Client can see and appreciate what the building will look like, how it will behave and how the end-user may interact with the layout and space. The Design Team can collaborate and share 3-Dimensional information from the very early stage, which helps to minimise errors and ensures that the designs are coordinated spatially and in a multi-disciplined environment.

Canham Consulting’s view is that BIM is only part of the solution. Any successful Project relies on good, positive communication and this is something we believe is one of our strengths. Our design concepts will often start with sketches and proposals, complemented with design meetings with various parties. This initial scoping stage is crucially important to convey the design approach.

Our 3-Dimensional Models are then created and linked together; our software is inter-operable which encourages open and positive communication between departments and other Professionals.

Our Structural Engineers use an Industry leading 3-Dimensional analysis and design package, which coordinates with a 3-Dimensional Modelling Program, allowing us to model any building of any size and complexity. Our Civil Engineers operate an innovative and multi-faceted ground modelling and infrastructure package of design software which coordinates with the Structural Engineers software, to allow the total construction to be modelled and developed in 3-Dimensions. Finally our Building Surveyors utilise intelligent Specification software which dovetails with our Structural and Civil packages, resulting in a fully collaborative and coordinated approach.

 

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.

Mr Simpson

We have worked with Canham Consulting for a number of years on a complex scheme, which has thrown up a number of challenges in terms of drainage engineering, flood relief and fuel storage solutions. Our Consultant is contactable, commercial, and realistic and his team have risen to the challenges to produce honest solutions to some difficult problems. We are impressed with the work and with the support that has been given to us as clients and would most definitely be utilising their service again in the future where the need arises.

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.

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.
