Conservation Engineering

At McCrae Consulting Engineers we offer a comprehensive range of services for Conservation Projects of all sizes. We have gained extensive experience working with many conservation specialists on a wide range of protected structures and national monuments.

As Conservation Engineers, we always endeavour to preserve the historic fabric of endangered structures with the absolute minimum of intervention.

In cases where intervention is unavoidable, our structural solutions are carefully devised to be minimal, reversible, and sympathetic to the structure.

We are mindful that the analysis of historic structures requires an intimate knowledge of both historic building materials and historic building methods. We have developed a large knowledge base over many years, and we are very familiar with many historic building construction styles.

To protect our built heritage we can provide Fire, Civil and Structural Engineering services for conservation engineering projects:

  • Assessment and appraisal of existing structures.
  • Design of Structural Engineering interventions.
  • Design of associated Civil Engineering works.
  • Fire safety advice and design.
  • Building surveys and defect reports
  • Assigned Certifier for conservation projects
  • Access Use advice and design.
