About Steven Howes........
Having over 18 years experience working in Architectural Design I have taken the plunge in starting my own company Howes Designs Ltd.
I started out my career in a high end bespoke joinery company (Marston & Langinger). It is here I developed my skills for surveying and producing plans for both site and joinery workshop.
The work also enabled me to travel the world working in places such as New York, Boston, Washington, Oslo, Dublin, Venice, Jersey and all over the UK. This meant dealing with all kinds of Planning & Building Regulations, broadening my knowledge of how different areas work.
After 7 years here I decided to build on my knowledge and move to SMG Architects (formally Stead Mutton Associates) who were about to expand.
This is where I was able to develop my skills and assist others in the growth of the business being a Senior Associate prior to leaving.
It was here I worked on most areas of architecture from small extensions to blocks of flats and retail units. I pride myself on gaining a good rapport with all clients, builders and consultants alike.
I currently live in a converted barn with my wife, two daughters and our little dog.
