We originated as Carpet Galleries in 1964 when brothers Alan and Tony Burr opened their carpet shop in Epping High Street.
The business evolved with a larger shop and began selling home furnishings including a commercial flooring division. Burr Furnishes outgrew its shop and moved to an industrial unit in Bishops Stortford.
CDC Flooring was created in 1986 by Nick Burr as a division that specialised in Commercial Carpets, Design and Co-ordinates.
Since its inception, CDC Flooring has continued with a family feel with long-standing staff and operatives. Many of our clients have been using our services since we began – even replacing their original floors by original installers!
CDC Flooring is proud of its client base and the quality of service and products it provides for all customers. We work within our financial constraints enabling us to support our suppliers and installers. This support ensures we obtain the most competitive supply rates and a committed workforce. Through the years we have grown into a company that can finance both large and small projects.
Many of our fitters have been working with us for over 10 years, and it’s our belief that as a team we are stronger than an individual. It helps us to achieve the highest professional standards possible.
All our operatives are trained directly in-house and all are kept up to date with toolbox talks, training initiatives, first aid and new products. Our trainees attend “Floortrain”, a government-approved NVQ Scheme. Our installation staff are all vetted through DBS and carry up to date certification and CSCS cards.
Nick is the Managing Director at CDC and formed the business as it is today over 30 years ago. Nick has an unparalleled wealth of flooring expertise and knowledge which he constantly uses to help clients make the right choices, as well as providing valuable operational input.

The health and safety aspect of our operations are a top priority. Each project is looked at to ensure we carry out our works safely and in accordance with the correct risk assessment procedures. Our commitment to ensure our clients, our staff, the public and our environment remain safe and in good health.
Our office staff are all familiar with our safety programme and attend relevant first aid courses and on-site safety talks. Our operatives are trained to carry out their works in the appropriate skilled and professional manner. Regular ‘tool box’ talks keep them up to date on each project they undertake.
We commit our fitting staff to the NVQ qualification system and carry CSCS cards. Regular works require our staff to carry CRB checks which we keep up to date.
CDC Flooring Ltd has been awarded CHAS accreditation and employs ‘Essential’ Health and safety consultants to monitor, update and advise our company.
CDC takes a socially responsible approach to all aspects of its operations and the impact that these may have on the environment.
Our goal is to minimise the amount of waste generated by our operations, that materials are recycled where possible or disposed of in a responsible manner. We also aim to work with suppliers that provide materials from sustainable sources wherever possible.
