My firm’s involvement with A B Canham & Son now spans two generations. In the early 1980’s my colleague John Ingrams, who administers all our design work, met with Alan Canham. At that time Alan was refocusing his business and specialising in exclusively local work in the Weald. Our first major project with Alan was the conversion of an oasthouse which coincidentally was for one of our Senior Partners at the time. The success of this project led to a significant number of major conversions of farm buildings to dwellings or restoration of existing dwellings where my firm dealt with the planning, design and contract supervision and Alan and his son Michael acted as main contractor.

Looking back it is interesting to recall one of Alan’s projects was actually the first planning development exercise which I managed upon joining Lambert & Foster. I believe this was also one of the first contracts in which Alan and Michael shared the active management responsibilities of A B Canham & Son.

More recently we have seen the transition of this traditional building business into a diverse construction company. Michael has demonstrated an ability of bringing the skills and standards required in delivering bespoke projects for private clients to the industry of speculative development. This is a rare attribute in the ever changing world of development and is entirely due to the sound administration and support service, where Michael is very fortunate to have the skills of his sister Sharon running the office and Michael’s personal involvement in day to day supervision of projects which maintains the high quality of work synonymous with this firm.

As independent Chartered Surveyors my firm is pleased to be associated with A B Canham & Son and wish them continued success for the future.
