Drainage

There is no getting away from the fact that we all need to dispose of our foul and surface water drainage somehow. Sometimes this is via a local water authority such as Anglian Water or Thames Water and sometimes it is via a private drainage system.

With either of these we are capable of determining the best drainage solution for your project whether it be a small extension or 100’s of houses, we can deliver the correct drainage solution.

This is increasingly important with changes in legislation to foul drainage which determines whether a water authority will adopt a pipe run. We negotiate with the water authority and provide the legal drawings and technical details required to achieve the agreement, typically an S104 or S106 agreement which leads to the construction and connection of a public sewer.

If the system is a private foul drain, then we have experience in the design of septic tanks, cess pits and package treatment plants. This includes establishing a suitable outfall either through infiltration or to a nearby watercourse.

For surface water drainage, increasingly Sustainable Drainage is required and this can take the form of soakaways, swales, wetlands or underground storage. We have the skill sets to enable the surface water drainage design potential to be tested and designed.

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.

Canham Consulting really understood our needs as a client, and the constraints and challenges of the project. They brought a wealth of knowledge and experience with them, consistently offered valued and well-considered advice. They were always prepared to go the extra mile to find workable solutions to inevitable problems. It was a joy to work with the team.

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.

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.

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
