Tarkett products were featured in 17 winning projects in the Starnet Design Awards.

The Design Awards, hosted by Starnet Worldwide, recognizes the dynamic relationships between Starnet Members and the A&D community by spotlighting innovative use of flooring in commercial design, as well as the quality and versatility of Starnet Preferred Vendor flooring products. 

Member submissions were judged by category: corporate, hospitality, public space, healthcare, education, environmental achievement and unique installation. Winners were celebrated for their creative use of flooring, overall design concept and quality of solution delivered. Tarkett brands, Tandus Centiva and Johnsonite were recognized as preferred vendors across all categories.

Most notably, the gold winning entries using Tarkett products included Rubenstein’s Contract Carpets for Portland International Airport, Terminal Recarpet in the environmental achievement category. In the hospitality, public space category, Mr. David’s Flooring International won for their HarborChase of Shorewood project. Mr. David’s Flooring International also took home gold in the healthcare and people’s choice category for the Rust University Medical Center Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The Grand Prize winner was ReSource Colorado for IMM TI, also receiving gold in the corporate category. 

In addition, Starnet recognized three teams who demonstrated outstanding collaboration, teamwork and business results at the local market level. Each team had one sales representative/project manager from a Starnet member and one sales representative from a Starnet Preferred Vendor Partner. The winning teams were either self-nominated or nominated by their peers as outstanding examples of the value of team effort and the strong results made possible by building a culture of trust and collaboration. Two Tandus Centiva account executives were members of the winning teams. The teams recognized were Paul Juliano (Tandus Centiva) and Sue Hedges (CCA Floors & Interiors), and Danny Airhart (Tandus Centiva) and Joe Carmichael (ACS Flooring). 

“The Starnet Dream Team award was an exciting accomplishment for ACS Flooring and Tandus Centiva in Houston. Over the past few years, a lot of our success has been the result of our teamwork on some large projects,” said Airhart. “It was especially nice, because team wins are more gratifying than lone accomplishments. I was happy to be able to represent our larger Tandus Centiva Houston team and our company, as many were involved in these projects."
