At Howorth, our forward thinking solutions are setting new standards in next generation healthcare areas; operating theatres, critical care and isolation facilities, before, during and after treatment.

Our unrivalled experience in operating theatre design, construction and commissioning with a focus on detail at every stage, makes us a more proactive and helpful partner, listening to your needs, opening new conversations and creating robust, safety focused solutions.

We operate with integrity, caring about every detail, micro-managing each step of the process and applying innovative thinking to achieve more successful outcomes.

Without charge or obligation, we will undertake an initial feasibility study, develop a layout proposal and produce budgetary pricing. As part of this free service we can typically offer;

  • Audit of current facilities to assess their potential for compliance with current regulations
  • Physical site inspection
  • Testing to measure performance against design criteria
  • Full written proposal, including budget pricing
  • Layout drawings and schematics
  • Provisional project schedule

We can then work with you to develop a more detailed design in order to furnish you with a fixed price quotation.
