From Our Base To Your Event

To ensure prompt service across the country, our operations are centrally located, in Nottinghamshire. From our three-acre premises, with 27,000 square feet of covered storage, we handle all our design, manufacture, resourcing, maintenance and logistics.

All the hard work we do here ensures success at your event, wherever it is. Our knowledge, experience and enthusiasm mean you can trust us with your temporary structures – so you can concentrate on all the other aspects of your event.

Maintaining quality and safety

At Woodhouse, the end of the season doesn’t mean the end of our work – this is when we start the all-important preparation for the following year. In September, we grade all our Clearspan® marquee covers, tag them and plan their maintenance. We do this while they are still in use on site, because the natural light helps us assess their condition. Then, using our giant 7.4-metre Havencrown PVC washing machine, we clean and dry the covers. Next, we inspect for rips and pin-holes – and repair them on the spot or set them aside for replacement. We also inspect the aluminium frames and steel connections, base-plates and stakes, before cleaning and stacking them away.

We take a different approach for our temporary stabling – because of the sheer volume (over 3,000 of them) and their style of construction. We inspect, grade, wash and repair the PVC roof covers in a similar way to the marquee covers, and then inspect the stable doors, sides and rear partition walls for any damage, repairing or replacing as necessary. Horses do more damage to the traditional timber stables, so we rigorously inspect all the doors, sides and back sections, and rebuild around a third of them each year.

We also inspect, clean and, where necessary, replace our Quicktrack and Horse Walks, along with our wide range of accessories. So everything is fit for purpose, ready for the next time you need them at your venue.

History

We are proud of our heritage as a leading industry contractor. Discover over a century of experience here.

  • The temporary stable barns designed by Woodhouse for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games were excellent and part of the success of the Games.

    The size of the stables, the width of the aisles and the quality of finish all contributed greatly to the horses’ comfort and safety.

  • As the dust begins to settle on RWHS 2016 & HMQ90 I just wanted to pass on a personal thank you for everything that you did individually and the part your teams played in this years double event.

    Thank you for making it an event to remember forever and my role within the project a lot less challenging and stressful than it could have been.

  • On behalf of the Organising Committee, I’d like to thank you for the great job Woodhouse has done for the FEI Alltech WEG 2014 in Normandy.

    I really appreciated the commitment of your teams that have shown high professionalism in the way they’ve managed the stabling facilities. I hope that we’ll have the opportunity to work together again soon.
