The Conservation Accreditation Register of Engineers (CARE) identifies civil and structural engineers skilled in the conservation of historic structures and sites. We are pleased to announce that Associate Michael Wilford is now a CARE accredited engineer.
Over the years, Michael has developed a particular interest in the conservation and repair of historic structures and considers himself fortunate to have worked on some of the most iconic and award-winning buildings in Oxford and throughout the UK.
A large proportion of Michael's work has involved the complex refurbishment of historic buildings and sites, many of which are listed or Scheduled Ancient Monuments. He has a wealth of experience of sensitively restoring historic fabric, as well as carefully interlinking modern designs with existing structures. The meticulous approach and attention to detail these projects require is something Michael thoroughly enjoys.
“I enjoy the process of peeling back the layers of history of a building, understanding how the original builders constructed and subsequent generations of modifications and repairs.”
Michael specialises in the repair and alterations of historic buildings, but also has great experience of designing modern structures. He is able to draw upon his experience from a range of projects, using modern repair and construction methods to supplement the traditional.
