Consolidated Carpet recently won two Starnet Design Awards at the 2011 annual awards event. Consolidated Carpet took First Place in the Small Corporate category and the Unique Installation Challenge category. The company also won the CARE Recycling Award. The event was held in Phoenix, Arizona in April 2011 and sponsored by Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring Partnership.

Consolidated Carpet’s recent interior flooring renovation at the internationally renowned architecture firm, H.O.K., took first place in the Small Corporate category. Consolidated Carpet used Bentley Prince Street’s carpet products to embody H.O.K.’s corporate design aesthetic and sustainable mission.

The Unique Design Challenge award was given to Consolidated Carpet for their installation of FreeAxez Low Profile Raised Floor System and Bigelow’s “Doctor” Carpet Tile in the NYC Public Administrators office. The project represents a classic example of a unique flooring specification solving the overall challenges presented by the modernization of a landmarked space.

Consolidated Carpet’s sustainability efforts were also recognized as the 2011 recipient of the annual CARE Recycling Award.  As part of their commitment to sustainable business practices, Consolidated Carpet annually diverts over one million pounds of used flooring materials from landfills.  Since the 1980s, Consolidated Carpet’s goal of diverting material from landfills and supporting environmentally conscious practices of reuse has been recognized as one of the leading carpet reclamation programs in the country.

The Starnet Design Awards are an annual competition that recognizes jointly the members of Starnet, the world’s largest cooperative of commercial flooring contractors, and their local design partners from the United States and Canada.
