Agence France Presse

Client Background

AFP is a global news agency delivering fast, in-depth coverage of the events shaping our world from wars and conflicts to politics, sports, entertainment and the latest breakthroughs in health, science and technology.

Points of note

Maris have relocated AFP from their old premises at Centre Point WC1 to their new offices at 200 Aldersgate EC1

AFP’s previous landlord was granted permission to convert a number of floors into residential units and as such gave tenants 6 months notice. Therefore AFP have engaged Maris to help them undertake an office relocation.

As AFP’s new UK home, 200 Aldersgate newly refurbished Grade A office space within highly regarded business premises.

The scope of works included a mixture of cellular and open-plan office space. Maris have satisfied the need for AFP employees to continually access the news by installing a number of television sets and other audio visual devices.

Maris hope AFP will enjoy their brand new working environment and that it will boost staff morale and working efficiency.
