History and Background

Managing director Michael Howard accepting Wates' Preconstruction Support Highly Commended Award for our work on Leeds City College's Quarry Hill campus.


Howard Civil Engineering was founded in 2003 by managing director Michael Howard and specialises in four primary disciplines:

Michael hails from a family of skilled constructors and demonstrated a deep passion for the industry from a very early age. After working in the industry for several years upon completing his studies, Michael identified a clear gap in the market for a passionate family-run business committed to building positive relationships with clients whilst consistently delivering exceptional results.

Michael, along with his committed and dynamic team, has overseen Howard Civil Engineering’s growth from its infancy as a Yorkshire-based start-up business with no external funding to a successful results-driven company achieving an outstanding annual turnover in excess of £30 million.

Over the years, we have delivered projects for both end user clients and main contractors, and have had the privilege of working alongside industry-leading companies such as Wilmott DixonBowmer & KirklandWates Group and Sir Robert McAlpine.

We are proud to boast a strong management team committed to nurturing a positive work environment for our team members and our clients, which we feel is integral to our overarching mission to deliver high-quality projects on-time and on-budget.
