About Us


After gaining experience as a bricklayer, Simon Howells set up S.D. Howells Builders Ltd and the company has gained an excellent reputation for its work, mainly in the Emsworth area of Hampshire.

Simon has a team of experienced builders and tradesmen who undertake a variety of projects for their clients, from small works to new-build houses. All work is carried out to the highest professional standards and S.D. Howells is a member of the National Federation of Builders, for your peace of mind. Their local knowledge means they know where to source reclaimed materials for older properties and they have the skills to work with specialist materials such as flint.


The range of skills employed by the company is complemented by the services of a fully qualified local architect, with whom Simon has worked for many years. Simon is also able to guide his clients through the process of applying for building consent and planning permission, as necessary, and has done this on many occasions.

The team keep up with the latest technologies, such as eco-friendly materials and environmentally sound practices. Recent examples include installing a ‘green’ or living roof, consisting of an amazing display of plants. The company prides itself on high standards of quality and health and safety, as well as running a tidy site and returning the property in excellent condition to the owner.
