Conservation

Our built heritage is always under threat and at McCrae Consulting Engineers, we have a tradition of taking its protection seriously. Working with a number of well known Conservation Architects, we have undertaken conservation work on a number of significant buildings.

To protect our built heritage we can provide Fire, Civil and Structural Engineering services and Accessibility consultancy. Our expertise includes:

  • 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 and use advice and design.

Be it fire safety or structural works, when undertaking works to a protected structure, it is necessary to have an understanding of the importance of the building and its makeup.  We identify and assess the works that are required so as to avoid unnecessary interventions and provide economical and innovative solutions that are sympathetic with the fabric of the original building.
