Humble Lakeland Elementary School and Elementary School #30
Humble, Texas

Educational institutions have unique needs when it comes to flooring. From classrooms to libraries to cafeterias, each room serves a specific purpose that will determine the best choice for flooring products. Intex Commercial Flooring in Houston, Texas, took on a creative project at Humble Lakeland Elementary School and Elementary School #30 in Humble Texas alongside architectural firm PBK. The new construction project featured more than 115,000 sq. ft. of flooring—46,000 sq. ft. of which was waterjet-cut flooring that encompassed more than 35 different colors.

The goal: to provide children an elaborate collaboration space to expand their creativity and learning skills. Intricate design and detail, combined with spectacular craftmanship featured throughout the school, showcased a masterful skill level of installers and their technical expertise. The end result is a breathtaking combination of innovation and imagination that will inspire future generations to become cross functional collaborative thinkers.

Armstrong Flooring Headquarters and Design Center
Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Graydon Buckhead
Atlanta, Georgia

A 22-story tower blending seamlessly into its historic surroundings, Graydon Buckhead offers a boutique collection of luxury residences, just a short distance from the world-renowned restaurants and boutiques of Buckhead. The building has 47 units ranging in price from $1.5 million to $8 million. DCO Commercial Floors completed all flooring in the new tower, including all hard tile and wood in the units, and all hard tile, carpet, rubber, and wood in the commons areas. 

Kolter Urban was the developer on this project, and this was their first time doing a project in Atlanta. In the past, Atlanta has been a hotspot for multifamily projects, but particularly off-campus student housing. Atlanta was identified as a great place for condo growth, and by bringing in a luxury project like this, it gave Atlanta the opportunity to present itself to a higher-end market of consumers. This is one of the first builds in the luxury condo market, with units selling out quickly and the penthouse unit already purchased. 

The owners had complete customization options for the condos, so DCO’s scope was to supply them with whatever type of flooring and amenities they desired for their residence. 

“We were able to install heated floors into some of the units, as well as custom woods in the bathrooms of penthouse units,” said Hannah Glass, marketing coordinator. Tilebar supplied the high-end tile marble tile used. The public areas contained rubber flooring, and the complex itself has a resort-style pool and spa, entertainment areas, formal and informal club rooms, fitness center with spin studio, green yoga lawn, newsroom, dog spa and park, and two guest suites.
