How we'll approach your project

Brief

You need an environment that can help your people be productive today, while also providing flexibility so you can grow and develop. That’s why we start every office design and fit out project by establishing your aspirations as well as your current needs. During the briefing stage we also introduce key members of the Woodhouse team so you can get to know your contacts.

Building analysis

Once we have defined your brief we can help you compare and evaluate the available properties. We can apply the brief to a variety of workspaces so you can consider the requirements, the results and the budget implications.

Concept design

Initial designs and space plans offer a first glimpse of your new office. We provide 3D visuals on every project so you can feel confident that the plans will meet your ambitions for the desired office design

Detailed office design

Your office must do more than look good. It must provide a positive, uplifting environment in which people can be productive. And every aspect must make sense for your brand and achieve harmony with your corporate identity. At the detailed office design stage you will be able to confirm that every component of the planned build adheres to your specifications.

Approvals

We work closely with you and your partners to get planning permission and landlord approvals if they are required.

Mobilisation

During the lead-in period we purchase materials and confirm the availability of our subcontractors. We also make sure that the site has no obstructions or restrictions and that our team is ready to progress on day one.

Construction

One of our greatest strengths is our background in construction. This means that we have the skills to overcome unexpected challenges on site.
In addition to a project manager we offer a dedicated site manager on every office build. Your site manager will ensure that the site is run effectively and safely throughout the fit-out.

Furniture

Woodhouse is an independent furniture supplier, so we can help you explore everything that the market offers. We hand-pick office furniture to meet your precise needs, taking into account aesthetics, durability and functionality. Read more about our office furniture services.

Support

After designing and building your office space, we know that we are the best people to maintain it. Our ongoing support and maintenance services ensure that your space grows with your organisation.

What our clients say

It was a challenging project but Woodhouse worked closely with our investment and surveying team to achieve a fantastic end result.

General feedback from the team here at Molnlycke, and also from me, is that we are very impressed with the new offices and very much appreciate the effort and professionalism of the Woodhouse team in completing the project on time.
Paul Doust
UK Service & Supply Director, Molnlycke Health Care
Massive thanks for what has been a great result! Mark and I have moved in and are loving the new set up. The past month turned out to be extremely busy for us and having Adrian managing the various elements worked out very well.
Tim Boyle
Property Executive, Belfast Harbour
Woodhouse were selected as our preferred contractor for both our first and second office refurbishment projects. This was due to the outstanding work carried out at our offices. Woodhouse were seen to be very professional in terms on initial presentation, work ethics customer liaison, customer focus and customer service which contributed greatly. Matthew and team are very professional, I would most definitely recommend Woodhouse to another company for projects.
Evelyn Kellman
Executive Assistant, V Ships Plc
After careful consideration, we appointed Woodhouse to design and fitout our new sales office. We chose an open-plan style office to encourage team work, maximize communication and to increase accountability. As a result of the completed fitout project, combining the sales, administration and operations teams together has made a tremendous difference to the performance of the team as a whole. Cross-communication issues have been resolved, staff morale is higher than ever and increased accountability has driven results. As a result of improved productivity, we were also able to reduce administration costs and increase our turnover. This is one of the best decisions we have ever made, and Woodhouse were an excellent company to partner with in making ideas become a reality.
Leonard Quinn
Managing Director, Cottonmount
Woodhouse were a great team to deal with. They were professional without being afraid to get their hands dirty! They took the time to understand our needs and met us on-site as often as we needed them to. We are extremely pleased with our ‘new-look’ reception, which was delivered on-time and on-budget. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any workspace design or fit-out.
Nuala Dobson
Executive Assistant to CEO, Karro Food Group
A state-of-the-art office solution that we can be proud of. When clients visit us, it really portrays our position as market leaders within unified communications.
Pat Botting
Managing Director, Freedom Communications
Footfall has increased considerably as staff want to bring clients to our office to show off the area and regional staff are travelling down to make use of the facilities. Feedback from all has, and continues to be, hugely positive and clients love the space we have. The video wall enables us to have company logo's for client visits and the reception desk is always a wow. Guest numbers compared to last year are: January saw 1493 guests compared to 1218 last year, February saw 1550 compared to 1353, March saw 2096 compared to 1403. From my teams perspective the area is much more user friendly and is a very relaxing environment to work in.
Harry McGarry
Head of Reception, Global Radio
Woodhouse were chosen by The British Polio Fellowship for their reputation for producing practical workspaces designed with the needs of the client in mind.
Ted Hill
CEO, The British Polio Fellowship
Thank you Woodhouse! The new carpet throughout our office is excellent and the way your project manager and his team handled the fitting project was outstanding. It couldn’t have been a smoother transition although we remained fully operational throughout the project. The team on site were very helpful and kept the office very tidy and clean and were very flexible for the duration. I will certainly recommend Woodhouse to anyone who I hear of doing alterations to their office.
Allison McSweeney
Office Manager, YSC Ltd
The management of Foundation Trust Network would like to thank the Woodhouse team for their achievement in completing an outstanding refurbishment and fitout for our new office in Westminster. At all times we found you very fast, pleasant and helpful to work with and nothing was too much trouble. We would not hesitate to recommend Woodhouse to anyone considering an office refurbishment, fitout of furniture project.
John O'Brien
Director, NHS Providers
The overall service was good and work finished to a good standard. The office is now contemporary and smart and has enabled our staff to work more productively with the new layout.
Allan Kay
Director, Alternative Bridging
We are very pleased with the work your team carried out for us. On time on budget and they cared.
Stephen Fox
Managing Director, Fox Kalomaski Crossing
Woodhouse provided an excellent service on the design works that matched our company image and requirement. They were very thorough and ensured that all key areas for the project were addressed. The project planning worked extremely well and complimented our business schedule perfectly. As well as the design Woodhouse delivered good quality furniture and fittings on time. The coordination between client, Landlord and the management office was also excellent. Having experienced the Woodhouse design services and refurbishment quality, we strongly recommend Woodhouse to companies that need their offices refurbished in the near future.
Evelyn Kellman
Office Manager | Executive Assistant, V Ships
I can confidently say Woodhouse displayed professionalism throughout the entire project. From the initial presentation of the design through to the completion of the fitout, we were impressed by your high level of communication. This included communicating with landlord’s representatives and local authorities. Throughout the process you and your team provided excellent advice and assistance and dealt superbly with the several changes made to the design. We are grateful for your active management throughout the contract works and for completing the fitout within an extremely tight timescale. I’d have no reservations recommending Woodhouse to other companies.
Gregg Smith
Board Secretary, London Pensions Fund Authority
I would like to thank you for the fine work you did on three projects for us; the new offices in our warehouse, installing our new technical laboratory and kitting out a new rest area for our staff. We appreciate Woodhouse's clear pricing, straightforward approach, attention to detail and timelines, resolution to our queries and general high standards. We are happy to recommend you and will be in touch should we have another project.
Edward Krawitt
Managing Director, Rustins Ltd
The total cost was within the budget we had set aside, there were extra’s we had decided to undertake and these were well documented and approved of in advance. The project manager at Woodhouse was first class and kept us very well informed throughout and more importantly after the project, taking time to visit repeatedly to ensure all snags were properly dealt with. I believe we made a good choice in using Woodhouse and my recommendation is simple. I would use them again, without hesitation.
Mark Glenister
Finance Director, Bizerba
We have used the services of Woodhouse on many occasions over the last 8 years. Originally they helped us with the design concepts for the complete fitout of our 5000sqft building and then completed the installation within time and on budget, this included several changes to the specification as the fitout progressed. Subsequently over the years we have had reason through growth to change the internal layouts, add further offices etc. On each of these occasions we used Woodhouse and can unequivocally state that the attention to detail and delivery of work by Woodhouse and their operatives has been exceptional. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them to anyone.
Mike Hayes
Chief Executive, Action For Kids
I write to thank you and the team for the excellent turnkey refurbishment of our Headquarters now complete. It was a complex programme to manage keeping the office and reception fully occupational but it was handled perfectly. The days of coming to a dated office seem like an age ago now we have this modern and professional environment. We look forward to working with you again soon.

Director, Douglas & Gordon
