Starnet Commercial Flooring Announces Healthcare Design Awards

Starnet Commercial Flooring, the world’s largest network of full-service commercial flooring contractors, has revealed the first of several Starnet Design Awards winners of 2021. 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.

New this year, Starnet will announce the gold category winners monthly, culminating with the Grand Prize Winner revealed during the organization’s annual shareholders meeting in Fall 2021. The upcoming industry sectors to be highlighted: Education; Hospitality/Public Space; Mixed Use Developments; and Corporate.

In today’s healthcare environments, great emphasis is placed on the physical environment to improve the well-being and overall satisfaction level of their patients, staff, families, and visitors. A critical interior design element in healthcare facilities is flooring. The flooring choices made, and the required expertise to execute a flawless installation, contribute to better patient outcomes.

Infection control, indoor air quality, slip resistance, noise reduction, temperature control, point and rolling load requirements, wayfinding, and easy care offer a unique combination of challenges for the healthcare industry. Navigating the execution is the Starnet network of commercial flooring contractors. The Starnet network delivers $750 million in flooring solutions to healthcare facility managers throughout the United States and Canada.

They did a marvelous job creating a positive, welcoming, and uplifting environment for people to experience in the hardest of times. Excellent work!”

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.”
