Subsidence

At Canham Consulting we have a vast experience of subsidence related damage to properties, both from our own personnel, and our "in-house" database of previously inspected properties.

Currently, loss adjusters and insurers appear to be treating these claims very much as a “process” rather than a structural engineering problem, and as a consequence our recent experience is that they do not want to investigate adequately or monitor and fully understand the problems before proceeding with repair.

In our experience, policyholders understandably want and need greater empathy for the damage to their property, as well as confidence in the technical ability of those that are responsible for resolving the problems. We believe that we have both the technical and practical experience to assist with these problems. At the current time it does appear that loss adjusters and claims handlers are sending inappropriately or under experienced staff to both inspect and diagnose the problems. It is apparent in many instances they do not have an understanding of building structures.

For subsidence related claims, our Structural Engineers and Surveyors can undertake the investigation and reporting, confirming cause and recommendations for mitigation, along with design of remedial repairs where appropriate and project manage the construction works until practical completion.
 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 Canhams are sensitive to traditional structures while being appreciative of a contemporary approach to design.

Canhams 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.
