Celebrating 25 years

Established in 1995, the Woodhouse Partnership celebrated its 25th birthday in 2020.  We are thankful to all contributors, clients and customers who have endorsed us as their ‘trusted advisors’ at hundreds of sites around the world.

“We have worked with The Woodhouse Partnership for a number of years calling them in to help with the strategic management of our assets and the optimisation of asset life cycle interventions for higher availability and extended life. One such example is for sewage treatment inlet screens where failure rates have more than halved and unavailability reduced as a result of changes to planned inspections and maintenance. Their application of the SALVO process and decision support tools along with a hands on approach make them stand out and deliver results which are transparent and fully understood by the business. Whenever we have worked together we have found The Woodhouse partnership engaging and insightful”
