Starnet Commercial Flooring revealed the 2021 Starnet Design Awards Grand Prize Winner: LVR Commercial Flooring for its work on UMC Health System’s Dimensions II in Lubbock, Texas.
Located within the University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas, UMC Dimensions II is the premier breast imaging center of West Texas. To better fit the center’s vision and mission of healing, its director recently commissioned a full renovation, including a thoughtful reimagination of the floor to honor breast cancer awareness. Designers incorporated the iconic pink ribbon throughout the space, creating a soothing, comforting atmosphere in the process.
In addition to winning the 2021 Grand Prize, Starnet Member LVR Commercial Flooring took home the Gold in Healthcare for its work on the UMC Health System’s Dimensions II.
Design Awards Judge Alison Woolf, LEED AP Associate Principal, Design Director, Huntsman Architectural Group, was immediately impressed by the project, saying, “This is an incredibly successful renovation that is warm, bright and uplifting. The theming is spot-on, and the iconic ribbon design is inspiring for patients.”
Fellow Judge Andrea Hanson, AIA, WELL AP, Principal, Architect, Licensed Interior Designer, Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, echoed her sentiments, adding, “The material choices were outstanding, seamlessly blending highly cleanable resilient flooring necessary for healthcare environments with carpeting and soft surfaces that manage acoustics and contribute to a quiet, healing environment.”
Now in its 23rd year, the annual competition honors the outstanding projects completed by the membership in partnership with the architects, designers and Starnet aligned manufacturing partners.
“We were grateful for the high engagement level with the Starnet Design Awards across the entire network of partners,” said Mark Bischoff, president and CEO of Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership. “Many of these incredible installations were completed during the height of the pandemic. They showcase Starnet Members ability to quickly adapt and remain focused on delivering exceptional commercial interior spaces to end users during the uncertain times. The range of projects delivered highlight the true value of Starnet—the power of collaboration, and partnering with a professional flooring contractor."
