Merry Christmas & Happy 2017!
2016 has been another busy year for Howl Associates – with a new crematorium in Cambridgeshire, student accommodation in Worcester and the progression of the The Old Hall development in Coventry just a few of the jobs ‘on the drawing board’ at the moment!
Finally many congratulations to Phil and Jacqui for becoming grandparents last week!
2017 is looking like an exciting year for us all!
HAWCE Summer event and BBQ at Stanbrook Abbey
Phil will be giving a presentation to the ‘Herefordshire and Worcestershire Constructing Excellence’ society tonight at the now very successful hotel and wedding venue – Stanbrook Abbey.
He will be explaining how the renovations took place and how we came up with the very striking design for the new extension.
Merry Christmas & Happy 2016 from all @ Howl Associates!
See you on the other side!
Crematorium in Derbyshire receives Planning Permission
Planners at South Derbyshire District Council have given permission to Dignity Funerals to go ahead with our scheme in Derby Road, Aston on Trent.
It will involve the creation of a chapel big enough to seat 100 people, a memorial garden with a water feature, seating and footpaths, all set in landscaped grounds.
The site, which will also have a car park, will cover a total area of 11.4 acres.
We are now looking forward to working closely with Dignity, and the rest of the team, to create a detailed design for the development.
The scheme is due to start on site next year.
Howl Associates, Mott MacDonald and Balfour Beatty have been awarded an ICE WM 2015 Award for the work carried out on the Birmingham Waterstones’ building.
This is in connection with our ongoing involvement with the new Metro lines through Birmingham.
Stourport on Severn Civic Society Award!
Last night Phil and Alan Lathbury, from Dignity Funerals, were presented with an award from Stourport on Severn Civic Society for Wyre Forest Crematorium.
Phil was particularly pleased to pick up this award as he had been involved throughout the project from developing the initial concept with Wyre Forest DC, evolving the detailed design with Dignity and together with Stuart producing the production drawings and running the contract on site. It has always been very much ‘his baby’.

Yes this really is a photograph and not our 3D model!
RIBA West Midlands Awards 2015
Congratulations to Phil who has been appointed Chair of the RIBA West Midlands 2015 Awards Jury.
This obviously is a great honour but unfortunately means that there will be no RIBA Award for Howl Associates this year!
We are delighted to announce that St George’s CE Primary School and Nursery has been short-listed for the RICS West Midlands Awards 2015 in the ‘Community Benefit’ and ‘Design Through Innovation’ categories.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
From all @ Howl Associates :)
