Scaffold & Temporary Works Designs

Over the last few years, Canham Consulting Ltd have become a leading designer of scaffold and temporary structures, working closely with scaffolding Contractors to help them to develop a practical safe and economic design.  

With the latest computer analysis software, combined with our professional experience and engineering judgement, there is literally no limit to the scope of scaffold and temporary support we can provide.

Our latest projects include a series of temporary access scaffold structures at Norwich Cathedral, which were complicated by the prohibition of ties and fixings to the masonry façade; and an access scaffold to the front elevation to City Hall in Norwich, which was complicated by a sunken basement which required cantilevered geometry at road level. We have also recently completed a design for access scaffold with internal temporary support which will be used for the construction of a control building at Sizewell Power Station.

Canham Consulting are adept at Temporary Works assessment, design and review.  We are used to working in a highly controlled environment and ensure that our designs are produced with the strictest quality control process to ensure a successful design is issued.

All designs are produced strictly in accordance with relevant British Standards and in line with recommendations given by the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation.

Below is a small selection of the type of temporary works designs we are able to offer.

Below Ground
  • Earthworks
  • Slope Stabilty
  • Excavations
  • Crane Bases
Above Ground
  • Facade Retention
  • Propping & Shoring
  • Scaffold

 

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 am a sole practitioner architect in Norwich with over thirty years experience, the last fifteen of which have been spent running my own Practice, with a speciality in historic building work.

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 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.

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 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.
