Howard Constable was born in Philadelphia, the son of James and Sarah (Lippincott) Constable. After attending Episcopal Academy and the University of Pennsylvania, he and his older brother, Stevenson Constable, set up offices in both Philadelphia and New York City. By 1886 they were in operation in New York and by 1889 their office in Philadelphia under the name Constable Brothers and T. Mellon Rogers was also established. Chiefly an architecture and civil engineering firm, Constable Brothers designed a number of residences in the Philadelphia area.
Howard Constable was a member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Friendly Order of the Sons of St. Patrick, and the Calumet Club. After his retirement in 1912, Constable resided in Princeton, NJ. He was the author of a number of technical articles on construction and fire prevention.
