Home News NTCA names winners of Five Star Contractor Project of the Year

Atlanta—The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) named the winners of its sixth annual NTCA Five Star Contractor Project of the Year Awards at Coverings 2018 here. 

NTCA’s Five Star Contractor Awards were presented for both commercial and residential tile installations. Many submissions were received and judged via the following criteria: Scope (size of project), Complexity (challenges), Technical Soundness (resolution of challenges) and Design & Presentation (overall appearance, layout and artistic value).

This year’s judges included: Kent Klaser of Ceramic Tile and Stone Consultants, Inc., San Diego, Calif.; Gregory Mowat of Forensic Tile Consultants, San Diego, Calif.; Richard P. Goldberg of Professional Consultants International, LLC, Avon, Conn.

Sponsored by Daltile, NTCA Five Star Contractor Grand Prize Award winners received a custom plaque and were awarded two round-trip airfare tickets and a two-nights hotel stay in Atlanta for Coverings.

Christian Brothers Flooring & Interiors, Inc. of Lakeside, Calif., was the recipient of the NTCA Five Star Grand Prize Award for Commercial Project of the Year. The Mesa Commons installation in Irvine, Calif., resulted in a striking visual appearance, design and layout, and the complex environmental challenges overcome during construction are those a NTCA Five Star Contractor could solve easily with its specialized training.

Visalia Ceramic Tile, Inc. of Visalia, Calif., was the recipient of the Five Star Grand Prize Award for Residential Project of the Year. Workmanship and artistic qualities brought the Hoffman Residence in Fresno, Calif., to life. A challenging mixture of both natural stone and ceramic presented the opportunity for Visalia to showcase its Five Star Contractor skills.

David Allen Company of Raleigh, N.C., was the recipient of the Five Star Grand Prize Award for Commercial Elite Project of the Year (over $1 million). Nearly 80,000 square feet of marble and tile were meticulously installed in the new Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel in Charlotte, N.C. Of the many complexities which presented themselves working in a metropolitan area, the narrow doorways offered a unique opportunity for this contractor to showcase its innovative thinking.

“We would like to thank our contest judges and sponsor for their support and, of course, all of the Five Star Contractor members who submitted incredible projects.” said Bart Bettiga, executive director of the NTCA. “Each of these winning installations, as well as the other submitted projects, clearly demonstrates the value of engaging an NTCA Five Star Contractor in such complex arenas.”
