We believe passionately in the importance of a good company image and the positive effect this has on its staff and customers. We know that a well decorated office with contemporary office furniture gives the impression of a company that is going forward and one that is responsive to modern trends. It also looks and feels like a great place to work and one in which the staff are happy and motivated.
We are also very aware of the importance of appropriate office decoration and office furniture. You would not for example, expect the same sort of office decoration or office furniture in a solicitor's office in Witham as you would a cutting edge advertising agency any where else in Essex and we understand that. Getting your office decoration and office furniture right, to present the right company image is very important and we work closely with our clients, getting to know them and their target market, so that when our work is complete, their offices present exactly the right image.
For an office to present the correct image, everything has to be right, from the office furniture to the office blinds and office flooring. One company may have a strictly corporate image that they must project whereas another may want something quirky and original. Whatever image you are looking to project, GDL Interiors can produce it for you.
We can supply and install everything your office fitout requires, including office flooring, office carpets, office wall coverings, office paint jobs, office furniture, office blinds and office window manifestation. We can supply and install office partitioning, office lighting and electrics as well as suspended ceilings and fire doors. We can fit out boardrooms, meeting rooms, public offices, private offices, typing pools, kitchens and washrooms and we do all of this whilst maintaining close contact with our clients to ensure they are entirely happy with the results.

The name Witham is Saxon in origin and remains unchanged in spelling. The parish of Witham appears in the Domsday Book of 1086. The manor of Witham was given to the Knights Templar in 1148. To the north of the current town is Cressing Temple which was the earliest foundation of Templar lands in Britain built over 700 years ago. It is part of the District of Braintree and is twinned with the town of Waldbrol, Germany. Witham stands between the larger towns of Chelmsford and Colchester and has the River Brain running through it which joins the River Blackwater shortly outside it.
During the latter half of the 18th century and the early 19th century Admiral Sir William Luard was the towns more prominent citizen, a resident of Chipping Hill and a founder and patron of St. Nicolas Church, his funeral cortege through the town in 1910 was witnessed by thousands. Witham briefly enjoyed a period as an affluent spa town after the discovery of a mineral bearing spa in the town by Dr Taverner in the 18th century; Witham was also a centre of the wool trade until the decline of the industry in the late 17th century.
On 1st September 1905 Witham railway station was the scene of a serious accident when the 09.27 London Liverpool Street to Cromer 14 carriage express derailed whilst travelling at speed through the station. 10 passengers and a luggage porter were killed when several of the carriages somersaulted onto the platforms causing considerable damage to the rolling stock and the station. 71 passengers were seriously injured and this remains to this day the worst single loss of life in a railway accident in Essex.
The town expanded greatly in the late 1960's and 1970's when the Greater London Council built 3 large council estates on the west and north sides of the town and a smaller one to the south for families from London to move to as part of the 'New Town' and 'Expanded Town' overspill policy of that time.
