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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
