A growing reputation for designing new and exciting buildings across a wide range of sectors is helping one award-winning architectural practice recruit and retain high calibre employees.

Howarth Litchfield, the architects responsible for the recently constructed, state-of-the-art CPI building at NETPark, Sedgefield and Newcastle’s Royal Grammar School’s new and innovatively designed Library, has announced a key appointment to its growing team, with the arrival of office manager and bid co-ordinator Clare Corless.

Clare has joined Howarth Litchfield at a time when the practice continues to see wide ranging opportunities emerge across its growing client base based throughout the UK.

A member of the Chartered Management Institute and an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel, Clare brings with her a wealth of experience from her previous roles. She was particularly attracted to work for Howarth Litchfield because of its ability to create new and exciting spaces, as well as preserving buildings of heritage, including Durham’s Shire Hall, now Hotel Indigo, projects for Durham Cathedral and most recently, Newcastle’s Neville Hall which is home to The Mining Institute and currently undergoing a multi-million pound transformation. 

Welcoming Clare to Howarth Litchfield, managing director, Jonathan Yates said:

 “I’m delighted to welcome Clare to the team.  Her wide-ranging experience is such that it makes her ideally suited to fulfil such a key role within Howarth Litchfield and her support to allow us to continue to successfully tender and win new work.”

Clare added:

“Settling into my new role, I am looking forward to supporting the practice to grow as an organisation and build on its well-deserved reputation for designing award winning homes.”
