Narro are proud to announce that Lily Erskine has become the Practice’s fourth Conservation Accredited Engineer.
The Conservation Accredited Register of Engineers (CARE) was established jointly by the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE). CARE identifies structural and civil engineers who have demonstrated a real passion for the conservation of historic structures and sites. The registration process is used to determine that applicants have the range of skills and knowledge necessary to work with old buildings, in sympathy with the methods and material used in their construction.
Lily joined Narro in 2017 as a project engineer and following a series of promotions is now an Associate heading up a team of 13. She is currently on the board of IStructE Scotland and is active in Narro’s Outreach programmes, with a particular interest in promoting STEM for women and girls.
As a CARE engineer, Lily joins Narro colleagues David Narro, Ben Adam, and Steve Wood on the register. With four conservation accredited engineers, Narro continues to have more than any other company based in Scotland.
Lily said, “I’ve had a real interest in the conservation side of engineering since I started my career, and Narro’s strong background in the field has given me a great opportunity to gain real experience. Working on projects such as the Mackintosh Building at the Glasgow School of Art, the Scottish National Portrait Galleries and the current renovation of the Former Royal High School in Edinburgh, has been fantastic.”
Operating for over 36 years, the Practice has built up a reputation as one of the leading conservation engineering consultancies in the UK. Other conservation projects include Lews Castle in Stornoway, the Womersley-designed Netherdale Stand at Gala Fairydean Rovers and the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.
