Starnet names Canadian Project of the Year

Columbus, Ohio—Starnet Commercial Flooring, the world’s largest network of full-service commercial flooring contractors, announced: the Canadian Project of the Year winners, a new category for 2021. Like the annual US Starnet Design awards, the Canadian competition recognizes the outstanding projects completed through membership in collaboration with the architects, designers and Starnet-tuned manufacturing partners .

The winners in this first category are as follows:

Golden Canadian Project of the Year

Canadian project of the year

The Canadian Project of the Year Gold winner was awarded to Beatty Floors, Ltd. for her work at G&F’s financial headquarters in Burnaby, British Columbia. After evolving from a small Fishermen’s Credit Union into a regional institution with 34,000 members and 16 locations, G&F Financial said it had clearly outgrown its headquarters. The decision was made to take the first step in finding and designing a new space, making the largest historic investment in the organization’s future.

Hoping to maintain its deep community roots in Burnaby, G&F said it has managed to locate a commercial office tower within the recently completed Kings Crossing development. Designed for future growth, the bright space would become functional and inspiring. Gone was the cramped, outdated office and packed layouts of the past. Instead, it was replaced by a holistic design concept of flexibility that encourages collaboration between partners and departments
