Woodhouse Assurances

When organising an outdoor event, nothing can be left to chance. Success depends on meticulous planning, and anticipating every possible pitfall. Over our decades of experience, we have developed the processes and procedures – and trained our people – to ensure your temporary structures are in the right place at the right time, and in the right condition.

The Five Woodhouse Assurances

With Woodhouse products and services, you have the peace of mind that comes from our five-part assurance:

 

Attention to detail from the start

We know how important it is that everything goes smoothly before, during and after the event. We begin by assessing your event and venue, and agreeing what hire equipment you need, and when.

Our venue inspections cover factors such as local site access, ground conditions and the presence of any obstructions or utilities. We guide you in selecting the right structures from Woodhouse’s expansive stock, and commit to supplying them.

When we have erected your structures, we prepare a handover certificate, confirming they are correctly installed and fit for purpose. Our site safety record is spotless, and we invest in training and refresher courses for our employees annually.

 

Your dedicated team

To give you one reliable, responsive point of contact, we appoint one of our skilled, professional site foremen to supervise your contract. Supported by a fully trained team, they manage the installation, ensuring it complies with recognised MUTA Best Practice Guide and all relevant UK and EU industry standards.

 

Minimising disturbance

We understand the value of your venue. We treat your property with respect and consideration, and work co-operatively with your staff. On every contract, we plan ahead to minimise ground disturbance when erecting and dismantling structures – so your exhibitors and visitors see your venue in its best possible condition, and you can prepare it more easily for follow-on uses.

 

Equally, we take a serious approach to all aspects of sustainability – not only the environmental aspects of flora, fauna, watercourses and wildlife, but also keeping our work sites clean, and ensuring the safety and welfare of our employees. We are accredited to two important international standards: ISO 14001 for environmental management and ISO 20121 for event sustainability management. Our commitment to sustainability is rare in our industry sector, and Woodhouse is proud to lead the way.

 

Meeting safety regulations

As well as working to ISO sustainability standards, Woodhouse has experience of working under CDM (Construction Design and Management) Regulations 2007, even though temporary structures are not yet required to comply. At the London 2012 Summer Olympics, where CDM was mandatory, we carried out a major stabling installation following the strict procedures these regulations demand. So, for your event, you can be sure we will work to the highest safety standards.

 

Upholding best-practice guidelines

You can also gain reassurance from our long-standing MUTA membership. In fact, our Managing Director, Tony Marsh, has recently handed over the presidency having held the post from 2007-14.

 

Only the best, most reliable suppliers of temporary structures are MUTA members, signed up to a rigorous code of practice, providing a professional standard of workmanship, and maintaining public liability insurance of at least £1 million. In Woodhouse’s case, we carry £10 million of insurance to cover the full range and large-scale events we supply.

 

We follow our industry-leading, trade sector-specific body MUTA’s Best Practice Guide, and submit ourselves to independent inspection. So when you choose Woodhouse as your event contractor, you know you’re not taking a risk.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for everything you have done at Greenwich Park for London 2012. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team, and I would have no hesitation using Woodhouse again or recommending you to others. I think your stables are first class and you rightfully received great credit from athletes and grooms alike. Your approach throughout the design, installation, use and derig was great. Nothing was ever too much for you. Please pass on my thanks to the rest of your team.
