Tell us about your flooring installations

Leading Edge Managment Consultancy Ltd, a flooring research company, have joined the CFA to assist in a study they are undertaking on several flooring products and installations.

We are keen for members to support this initiative as in return Leading Edge have agreed to share some top level sector related statistics that we can share with members and will help the CFA understand the main trends in the market.

We currently have minimal information in this respect and so this will assist us in giving credibility to the work of the CFA through umbrella organsiations such as Build UK, CPA and CITB in lobbying government. 

A more comprehensive, detailed and products focussed version of the report will be made available to manufacturers to help them develop new products and services.

As such, if you get a telephone call from Leading Edge over the next month or so, we’d be grateful for your help in answering a few questions.

Alternatively, click through to this link now and answer the questions online.

As an added bonus, for every full response collected online, Leading Edge will donate £5 to the Children in Need charity.
