Fourfront Group

Clive-Lucking-headshot-OA-PROFILEFounded in 2000, Fourfront Group is a UK commercial interior specialist on a mission to create exceptional working environments built on innovation, inspiring design, excellence in delivery and great relationships.

The Group, made of four complimentary businesses, offers a comprehensive service; office design and fit-out (Area Sq), traditional fit-out and industrial and logistics contracting (Cube Interior Solutions), workplace consultancy (360 Workplace) and commercial furniture solutions and move management (Sketch Studios).

Fourfront has an annual turnover of over £160m and takes great pride in working with a variety of clients from multinationals including Vodafone and Virgin Media, to newer companies such as Tech City.

“I avoid negative people, I have no time for them. Negativity will drain your energy and everyone else’s”

The Group’s values, named ‘The Fourfront Way’, have always been at the company’s core and help shape the work they deliver for clients. Accordingly, Clive’s leadership style instils a democratic culture, demonstrated in their open-plan working environment; “I sit wherever there is a spare desk and that keeps my finger on the pulse far better than sitting in an ivory tower.”

Fourfront invests three times the national average on training and a recently launched well-being programme includes free yoga classes and mindfulness seminars. “We understand that business should be about giving back”, he says, “whether that be through our purpose to create the next generation of workplaces, or through our charity and CSR work.”

For Clive, key to the development of a vibrant economy is continual investment in new talent as well as generation of innovation from within.
