GRAPEVINE, Texas, May 18, 2022 – Corporate Floors, a Texas-based commercial flooring installation company, won the Gold Award in the mixed-use development category at the 2022 Starnet Design Awards. The company was recognized for its work on Watermere at Southlake, a luxury senior living community in northeast Texas.
“We are incredibly honored to win this prestigious award from Starnet,” said President Jim Burns. “The entire team at Corporate Floors, from our installers to our project managers, worked diligently to ensure the project was a success. We also are grateful for our amazing partners, who made this possible.”
The ongoing, multiphase project is a renovation of the community’s four-story, 35,000-square-foot clubhouse, which houses a dining room, a library, a theater, an indoor pool, a fitness room, a hair salon and card rooms. Corporate Floors installed 32-ounce tip shear broadloom carpet in most areas of the clubhouse; carpet tile in the lounge, card rooms, pool reception area, locker rooms and fitness room; and walk-off carpet tile in the entry corridors from the parking garage.
Corporate Floors partnered on the project with design group Professional Design Concepts and Starnet preferred vendors ARDEX, Milliken, UZIN UTZ North America Inc. and XL Brands.
Now in its 24th year, the annual Starnet Design Awards competition honors outstanding projects completed by the organization’s members in partnership with architects, designers and Starnet-aligned manufacturing partners. Gold category winners were selected by a panel of judges in the following six categories: corporate, education, healthcare, hospitality and public spaces, mixed-use development, and Canadian Project of the Year.
“This year we received an incredible lineup of project entries across the network of partners throughout the United States and Canada,” said Mark Bischoff, president and CEO of Starnet. “After two years of wide-ranging challenges—including long lead times, product shortages and a tight labor market—our members continue to showcase their grit, determination and installation excellence as entrepreneurs.”
