Woodhouse announced Business Award Finalists!


We are delighted to learn that we have been shortlisted as finalists for the Hertfordshire Business Awards 2016, taking place on the 24th November 2016.

Herts based, family run business, Woodhouse has been announced as a finalist in the prestigious Hertfordshire Business Awards 2016 in the Medium Business of the Year category.


The awards are in their 20th year and the judges were seeking to shortlist candidates based in Hertfordshire whose growth, ambition and quality of management has enabled them to deliver on a compelling business strategy. Evidence required included:

  1. Strategy – evidence of a vision/strategy that included a Business Plan
  2. Business Performance – controlled growth, sustainable and strong performance in the context of the property and construction industry
  3. Employment & Training – showing that they create new jobs and manage staff innovatively (with staff development and pastoral care as its heart) to match business needs.

Matthew Cooper, Business Development Director is very pleased with Woodhouse’s success and attributes it to the company’s passion for delivering excellent customer service at every stage of the process: before, during and post workspace design and build transformation. He commented, “I’d like to thank all the staff who’ve worked so hard to help make our business the success it’s become. The Woodhouse Culture and its people are as important to our business plan as any other component. Their enthusiasm, extensive product knowledge and dedication to client satisfaction have made all the difference, helping the business to go from strength-to-strength. Operating within the construction sector, Woodhouse has continued to flourish despite working through three recessions, nationwide skill shortages, business restructuring and the prolonged uncertainty leading up to Brexit. We would again thank our team and our valued clients for all their support over many years.”

Sarah Scott-Foster, Events & Exhibition Manager Archant Herts & Cambs and Herts Business Awards organiser said “We are very proud of the Herts Business awards and all that it has achieved in the past 20 years, it has grown organically to cover a large variety of businesses celebrating innovation and excellence within Hertfordshire. 2016 has seen the largest number of entrants thus far and we are grateful to our headline sponsor KPMG for judging and visiting Woodhouse. Best wishes to all.”
