Workplace design firm enjoys most profitable year to date

Bath-based workplace design and build company Interaction has enjoyed its most profitable year so far following a series of major project wins.

The business, which has enjoyed continued steady growth despite the pandemic, has seen sales grow to £33.5m and net profit increase to £2.35m during the last year.

Interaction’s growth has been driven by a number of multi-site projects across the UK for leading landlords and co-working space providers including Royal London, Great Portland Estates and Runway East.

The firm has also completed several high-profile design projects including the fit-out of Osborne Clarke’s new flagship office in Bristol’s Halo building. The cutting-edge office features flexible workspaces, indoor gardens and a roof-top restaurant and terrace.

As well as high-end, bespoke fit outs, Interaction provides occupier-ready workspace solutions to help serviced office providers let their space more quickly and profitably.

The company has also increased its headcount during the last year and now employs a total of 55 people. The firm has outgrown its existing premises and plans to move to purpose-designed offices in Edgar Mews, Bath, this Autumn.

Interaction’s managing director Dieter Wood said: “We have enjoyed steady growth during the last year as a result of a number of high-profile projects, both here in the South West and nationally.

“Our growing work with co-working operators has been driven by the pandemic as people adapt to new flexible working practices. We now have a really experienced and skilled management team in place to guide the business as we continue to work on complex, multi-site projects nationwide.

“This means we are in a robust position as we enter our new financial year, with a strong foundation for continued future growth.”
