At ASF, we know getting to know you and your company really matters. Decades ago, our founder Andy Fuller started a carpentry apprenticeship where he really cared about creating work that his clients loved. His attention to detail allowed him to specialise in historical buildings, like Leeds Castle. After completing the work on the castle, Andy often visited and saw people enjoying his carpentry. This gave him the idea to start a fit-out company that really thought about how people use the interior layout.
That was over 20 years ago. The company Andy founded was ASF and we quickly became experts in hotel and bar fit outs, working with companies like The Connaught Hotel, Brewers Fayre and All Bar One. We loved fitting out hotel and bar interiors because we got to see our client’s customers making use of the space. But we wanted to keep learning and apply our expertise to new environments.
By that time, ASF had really started to grow and it was the right moment to expand to other sectors. We took on bigger and bigger projects: retail fit outs, government renovations, office interior refurbishments, and bar and restaurant fit outs. We began to deliver larger, nationwide projects and complete construction work in more challenging environments, improving our craftsmanship but always fascinated by the client’s business and how we could help.
Today we are better known as the Fit Out People, specialist commercial refurbishment contractors. We deliver end-to-end commercial fit outs across all sectors but our core values haven’t changed in those twenty years.
Our team are still passionate about creating high-quality work for our clients. That’s why we were picked to build Pobble House from the ground up, an ambitious construction and fit out now used as a guest house. Our project was awarded the RIBA Regional House of the Year and selected for the Top 10 Houses of the Year on Channel 4’s Grand Designs. We couldn’t have done this without a love for delivering great work.
We still believe in building partnerships too. In 2017 ASF won Co-op’s Main Contractor of the Year award. We love every year we’ve spent working with the Co-op. They really share our values of honesty and trust and they always want to create great spaces for their customers and staff.
Whatever your fit out or refurbishment project, we can’t wait to help you make it happen and ASF will always work keeping your business, and your staff or customers, at the very heart of the project.
