Area reaches landmark 20th Anniversary

Fourfront Group company Area has reached its 20th Anniversary delivering award-winning working environments for some of the world’s biggest brands.

Starting with four people delivering projects in the Thames Valley from a small office in Egham, the business has grown significantly and now employs over 200 talented individuals who deliver projects across Europe. Since its launch in January 2000, Area has delivered over 5,500 workplace projects for over 1,000 clients across a multitude of sectors.

The business has grown into a position where it’s able to support clients on a far wider scale. Area originated in the Thames Valley – a place where they still do a large proportion of our business but wanting to be able to better support clients who have requirements across the UK, offices were opened in London and then in Birmingham.

With clients increasingly operating on a global scale, Area launched 10 European office hubs in October 2018. To date, Area’s Europe team has delivered projects in 12 countries across 60 cities.

Gary Chandler, CEO of Area and the wider Fourfront Group, comments: “Area has been on a tremendous journey since its formation back in 2000. In addition to working with amazing clients, who I am proud to say continue to work with us time and time again, I believe what has kept me passionate about the business is the dedicated, kind-hearted and driven people who I work with every day. I am proud to call the people who work here my colleagues, teammates and friends. 

In terms of what’s next for Area, other than continuing to build on our success across Europe, our aim is to provide the best client experience within our industry. Clients remain at the heart of everything we do, which is why we established our own CX programme to ensure we provide the very best service we can at every stage of the project journey.”
