BIM

Building Information Modelling, more commonly known as BIM, is replacing the traditional approach of the drawing board and Computer Aided Design (CAD). The production of fully coordinated 3-Dimensional Models is fast becoming the go to form of project communication from inception through to handover.

At Canham Consulting, our view is that BIM is only part of the solution. Any successful project relies on good, positive communication, and this is one of our strengths.

Our design concepts will often start with sketches and proposals, complemented with design meetings with various parties. This initial stage is crucially important to convey the design approach.
 
We use a suite of innovative, industry leading software to deliver our projects. By using this multi-disciplinary software, we have the ability to coordinate all of our models with external consultants to mitigate errors. Traditionally, these errors were lost in 2-Dimensional drawings but are now fully checked for spatial coordination through the use of BIM. We also use clash detection software which makes sure that all clashes are resolved.

Where there is BIM there is COBie (Construction Operations to Building Information Exchange), where we can log a projects maintainable assets, enabling us to deliver a true BIM level 2 compliant project. We have a proven track record in providing all 4 data drops required at key stages throughout the project. As per the 2016 government mandate, we comply by providing the essential items and we can guide you through the process to guarantee that you have all of the information you require at the handover stage.

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.

I'm really pleased with the service Canham Consulting provided. They were very quick to respond to my urgent requirement and delivered to budget. The designs they provided on my extension were second to none and the result wouldn't have been as good if I went elsewhere. Overall they provided a brilliant service and I would happily recommend them to friends.

Annoymous

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 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

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.
