MAPEI recently announced that it received several honors at the 2020 Starnet Design Awards. Intended to celebrate the partnerships between Starnet members, vendor partners, and the architecture and design community, the awards showcase a wide array of floor-covering projects. Due to COVID-19, the ceremony was held virtually for the first time in 22 years.

As a Starnet Preferred Vendor, MAPEI was awarded the Gold Medal for its role in the following winning projects:

  • Mixed-Use Developments category—The Oleander luxury apartment complex in Brookhaven, Ga.
  • Unique Installation category—St. Stephen Catholic Church in Grand Rapids, Mich.
  • People’s Choice category—Nationwide Children’s Behavioral Health Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio

MAPEI was also the 2020 Grand Prize Winner and received the Gold Medal in Education for its role in the project at the Park Elementary School in Baton Rouge, La.

“MAPEI was very well represented in several Starnet Design Award entries and winners,” said Eric Boender, Starnet’s vice president of Business Development. “MAPEI has been an excellent resource for the Starnet membership in several key installation processes, including surface preparation, moisture mitigation, adhesives, and tile and stone installation products. The Starnet membership satisfaction with MAPEI’s products and field service representatives continues to be outstanding.”

“We are proud of our role in these winning projects,” said Carol Hould, MAPEI’s national sales director. “They highlight the importance of our partnerships and our collaborative work, and the value they provide. We are honored by the recognition.”
