Commercial flooring maker Tandus said it has finalized a five-year, $83 million deal to provide flooring for the largest community college district in the U.S. The agreement with the Los Angeles Community College District, which oversees nine colleges in L.A., gives Tandus exclusive rights to supply environmentally sustainable contract carpeting for all construction projects in the district. According to Tandus, the deal is the “largest such contract awarded, as well as the most environmentally sustainable [agreement], in the history of the flooring industry.”

“We are honored to be embarking on such a positive path with LACCD, making a lasting and positive difference in the quality of life for its students through sustainable initiatives,” said Hussmann. “We are proud to be the supplier chosen for our capabilities in design, technology and sustainability,” he said.
