Wallingford HydroSolutions (WHS) is a vibrant, employee-owned company of dedicated professionals. Founded by staff from the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH) in 2004, from inception, our vision has been to be a growing and good quality provider of focussed environmental solutions to facilitate the sustainable development and management of the UK’s infrastructure. We moved into employee-ownership in 2018. Our employees are at the heart of what WHS stands for and embrace the company’s values, including the commitment to make significant donations to WaterAid each year. We made our first corporate donation of £36,500 in 2021 to help WaterAid reach communities around the world with clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene.
WHS is well known throughout the UK as the developer of the hydrological tools and techniques used as industry standard. Over the years, we have grown to provide a comprehensive range of environmental consultancy services focussing on the water environment. We are passionate about using our robust analytical skills and national credibility to proactively help our clients realise their ambitions.
Our highly experienced team of scientists and engineers have a proven track-record in providing consultancy services encompassing the entire water cycle. Our integrated approach and breadth of experience means we deliver effective, well-informed solutions for each project that meet the multidisciplinary requirements of environmental regulation.
Our software packages are industry standard solutions. We provide Qube for the estimation of river flows within ungauged catchments and – working in collaboration with UKCEH – we are the providers of the WINFAP and ReFH2 modelling packages and developed and maintain the FEH Web Service. In keeping with changing industry requirements and trends, the software development team continues to update and expand our product range.
WHS is committed to continuously improving company performance and customer satisfaction. We are proud of our ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification for the provision of environmental consultancy services, development of hydrological software and associated training. As a sustainable and environmentally conscious company, we aim to promote the concept of sustainable development, prevent pollution and minimise the environmental impact arising from the provision of our services.
