The Fourfront Way

Our values encapsulate the essence of our business, who we are and how we behave. These values bind us together and define us as a business. Above all, our values need to be demonstrably true.

Here our 10 truths about the way we are – we call it “The Fourfront Way”.

Stronger Together

Our comprehensive service offering includes office design and fit-out, detail and build, traditional fit-out (Area), workplace consultancy (360 Workplace) as well as commercial furniture solutions, move management and archiving (Sketch Studios).

The three companies that together form Fourfront Group offer a shared commitment to develop genuine partnerships with clients, achieve delivery of world-class service levels, an innovative approach, and exceptional end results.

These are the values that make us stronger together and underpin our place as one of the UK's strongest and fastest growing businesses in the field, with a turnover in excess of £150m. 


Area is the UK leading office design and fit-out company, specialising in innovative, sustainable and inspiring office interiors. We undertake office relocation and refurbishment projects from £100,000 to £20m+ across the UK and Europe. Our comprehensive range of services ensures seamless and exceptional results every time. This has led to an enviable portfolio of clients and 95 percent repeat business from existing clients, some of whom have extensive property portfolios or ongoing rollout programmes. Central to our success is the Area philosophy of working in genuine partnership with each client and their professional teams.
