Sustainable Drainage Solutions

Every new construction project has to provide some form of sustainable drainage solution, or at least prove why it cannot. From a drainage perspective, this means that any rainfall should be treated and disposed of as close to its source in order to be considered as sustainable.

Sustainable drainage solutions or SUDs take many forms from infiltration techniques using soakaways or swales, to the use of ponds, wetlands and swales. SUDs provide two functions; they allow water to enter the water cycle at their natural rate, therefore reducing flood risk whilst also ensuring that water quality is not affected by development.

Our experience enables us to choose the correct Sustainable Drainage Solution for the particular site through determining the on-site infiltration rate either through desk top or site testing and then provide advice on how this can be best accommodated within a development.

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.

Sustainable Drainage Solutions Key Personnel

I had a really good experience working with Canham Consulting and am happy with the service they provided. The engineer turned up on time, had a good understanding of my requirements and did the job well.

Mark Shipley

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.

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.

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

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.
