The Woodhouse Partnership Ltd (TWPL) is a world leading authority on asset management, risk management, operational excellence and life-cycle cost, risk, performance optimization. The company was formed in 1995 by a team of former senior managers of blue chip organisations including Shell, UK Atomic Energy Authority, the Royal Air Force, Philips and Kvaerner Engineering.

We aspire to be your ‘trusted advisors’ with long-term relationships and practical, proven successes

TWPL operates on a global basis with its head office based near Newbury, Berkshire, UK. We have regional offices in North and South America. We also have a network of associates and regional support offices around the world, so wherever you are based, we can provide personal support and advice.



For more than 20 years, TWPL has been committed to working with organisations across different industry sectors in over 25 countries. We have found that cross-pollination of ideas and experiences between industries is often more valuable than the repeated benchmarking and specialities that are found within groups of similar organisations. This gives TWPL a special perspective – we can select and combine leading edge ideas and practical experiences from a wide range of sources and innovative thinking.

TWPL was involved in the project management of the DTi/European MACRO project, the SALVO Project, chairing the production of the BSi/IAM PAS 55 standard for asset management as well as the development of the ISO 55000 family of standards and the first IAM Competences Framework.


It can be no coincidence that projects facilitated by TWPL have won both of the two IAM Achievement Awards, as judged by a panel of international experts.

David McKeown, CEO, Institute of Asset Management 2015

TWPL stands out as a source of pragmatic advice, thanks to a deep understanding of the total picture of asset management – each consultant has at least 20 years’ front line operational and management experience. Our style of working is collaborative and flexible to ensure that programmes of improvements are correctly focused, sensitive to local needs and priorities, and realistically deliverable for long term effectiveness.

We pride ourselves on our ability to coach, mentor and transfer our experience to build competency and confidence. So whatever level you are at or whether you are an individual or a corporate, TWPL provides the full range of asset management training, consulting, and tools and techniques to suit you. These include: introductory briefings, baseline training and education (including online), tools: criticality, risk and prioritization, ISO 55001 system design, implementation and certification, expert facilitation of business/culture change, goals and roadmapping beyond ISO 55000.
