2019 Starnet Design Awards Mark 21 Years of Commercial Flooring Excellence

The 21st Annual Starnet® Design Awards were recently held in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona. The ceremony, which plays a major part in the organization’s spring meeting, celebrates the dynamic partnerships between Starnet Members, vendor partners and the A&D community.

Each year, the diverse portfolio of winning projects becomes more and more impressive. For 2019, DCO Commercial Floors took home two awards. These incredible installations vary in complexity, design and scale, yet they all highlight the true value of Starnet – the power of collaboration and partnership in the floor covering industry.

Congratulations to the teams of the Bailey Power Plant and Heartis Senior Living projects! The Account Executives and Project Managers from each will be receiving a non-taxed bonus for their awards.



Curtis Blanton (President), Luke Canup (Account Executive), Jeremy Kozup (Account Executive), Jesse Tranel (Vice President), Adrienne Dean (Marketing and Media Manager), and ReDonna Mendez (Vice President) were all in attendance for the Starnet Annual Meeting, which took place May 2 – 4 in Scottsdale, Ariz.


Gold in Mixed-Use

Bailey Power Plant

History meets innovation with the winner of the Mixed-Use Category. Located in the heart of the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter in downtown Winston-Salem, the newly renovated Bailey Power Plant was completed by Starnet Member DCO Commercial Floors.

“Clean lines, a controlled design aesthetic and the smart use of flooring materials make this project a winner,” said O’Neill. “Nothing clashes with the brick walls and steel structure, and the juxtaposition of the existing structure and new materials is impressive.”
