Howarth Litchfield is an award winning Chartered Architecture Practice with a reputation for delivering world class solutions in Architecture, Interior design, Building Surveying and Design Management services throughout the UK, over the last 40 years.

We offer unique design solutions, proactively working with all our clients to deliver high quality projects based on a thorough understanding of their vision, aspirations and objectives. The unique multi-disciplinary capability provides reliable total project solutions or selective professional services to seamlessly fit any project requirement. Each Project, large or small, is under the control of a Director.

HL is active across many sectors and disciplines. Our website gives examples of the diverse range of sectors, projects and awards. More than a design consultancy, we are a trusted partner for the duration of your project and beyond.

We believe that no matter what the cost, we’ll always do the right thing.

Following the Government’s announcements on the 16th March we wanted to let you know that Howarth Litchfield (HL) have amended our working practices.


We are continuously monitoring the information issued by the Government and we have contingency plans in place if the virus escalates, to minimise the impact to the firm and our clients.

As such, we are constantly reviewing current working procedures to ensure we continue to provide services without disruption. How we deliver those services will change in line with any further Government announcements and we will continue to keep you informed as the situation develops.

Some of the practical steps we have taken include:

  • Encouraging all to prevent the spread of disease by increasing hand washing, using hand sanitiser where available, and keeping work surfaces clean and hygienic
  • Postponing all external seminars and events we host
  • Encouraging staff to refrain from attending larger meetings and events
  • Allowing staff to work from home and remotely where necessary
  • Reducing face to face meetings and travel between offices
  • Taking advantage of the communication and video conference tools we already have in place

We want to reassure you that we have a robust business continuity plan at HL and, if necessary, all of our team can work remotely with no interruption to their daily activities.

Your day to day contact will remain unchanged and our teams can be contacted as usual on their mobile numbers or by email.

Above all, the safety and well-being of our staff, clients, and their families is paramount to us. We will keep you updated on any changes to our processes and any recommendations we have to help you and your business minimise the impact of these challenging times.

If you have any concerns, please contact the Directors for a discussion on your projects on how specific situations are being managed.
