Catherine Woolfitt is an architectural conservator, building archaeologist, and accredited member of the Institute for Archaeologists (IfA). She combines a wide knowledge of building archaeology and history with practical experience of conservation methods and materials appropriate to buildings, ancient monuments, and sculpture.
After completion of training in classical archaeology and art conservation in 1992, she worked in Rome (at ICCROM – the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage) and the UK (National Museums of Scotland in Edinburgh and Bournemouth University).
Her work experience covers the range of architectural periods from classical Greek and Roman to medieval monuments and buildings of the twentieth century. Project experience encompasses major redevelopment schemes, including St Pancras and Kings Cross Stations, and input at various stages from planning and procurement to execution of remedial work to heritage fabric.
Conservation of porous building materials – stone, brick, terracotta, mortar – is a particular area of specialisation.
