Historic Buildings

Canham Consulting Ltd have over 80 years combined experience in working on conservation projects and restoration of Listed Buildings.

Historic buildings form an integral part of our cultural and architectural heritage. The accurate assessment and understanding of historic buildings, their defects and modes of deterioration is vital to the design of appropriate repair.

We are able to provide a full service including initial assessment of the condition of the historic building, reporting, feasibility study, detailed assessment and design, and supervision of site works.

The design and specification of appropriate maintenance/repair or refurbishment works should reflect the historic character whilst taking into account the latest recommendations and advice from the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB).
 

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.

Historic Buildings Key Personnel

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
