Scaffold & Temporary Works Designs

Over the last few years, Canham Consulting Ltd have become a leading designer of scaffold and temporary structures, working closely with scaffolding Contractors to help them to develop a practical safe and economic design.  

With the latest computer analysis software, combined with our professional experience and engineering judgement, there is literally no limit to the scope of scaffold and temporary support we can provide.

Our latest projects include a series of temporary access scaffold structures at Norwich Cathedral, which were complicated by the prohibition of ties and fixings to the masonry façade; and an access scaffold to the front elevation to City Hall in Norwich, which was complicated by a sunken basement which required cantilevered geometry at road level. We have also recently completed a design for access scaffold with internal temporary support which will be used for the construction of a control building at Sizewell Power Station.

Canham Consulting are adept at Temporary Works assessment, design and review.  We are used to working in a highly controlled environment and ensure that our designs are produced with the strictest quality control process to ensure a successful design is issued.

All designs are produced strictly in accordance with relevant British Standards and in line with recommendations given by the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation.

Below is a small selection of the type of temporary works designs we are able to offer.

Below Ground
  • Earthworks
  • Slope Stabilty
  • Excavations
  • Crane Bases
Above Ground
  • Facade Retention
  • Propping & Shoring
  • Scaffold

 

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.

Scaffold & Temporary Works Designs Key Personnel

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.

My dealings with Canham Consulting were very professional from the point of contact and ease of arranging a suitable site visit through to the receipt of proposals. At all times they kept me informed of the progress and discussed in detail the project options and requirements.

We have worked with Canham Consulting over the past ten years, their approach to structural problems has been creative and their service prompt and professional.

Much of our work involves contemporary insertions into listed buildings and Canham Consulting are sensitive to traditional structures while being appreciative of a contemporary approach to design.

Canham Consulting offer an approachable service, a dialogue to discuss possibilities to enable concepts to come to fruition stretching the building and structural innovation to deadlines and mindful of client budget.

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.

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.

A professional company who take care to look after their client’s interests. Well worth their fee.
