CARE is the Conservation Register for Engineers. CARE is a joint Register between the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and is administered by ICE. CARE has been established to identify civil and structural engineers skilled in the conservation of historical structures and sites. Engineers Ireland has entered into a bi-lateral registration agreement where civil and structural engineers who are Chartered Engineer members can join the CARE Register.
Additionally,CARE has been established to:
- Assist clients in selecting an appropriate engineer with proven conservation experience
- Encourage education and training in conservation engineering
- Promote sympathetic and 'best practice' in conservation
- Raise the awareness of conservation in the engineering profession
