Home Commercial Starnet names Canadian Project of the Year

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

The winners in this inaugural category are as follows: 

Gold 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 its work on G&F Financial Head Offices in Burnaby, British Columbia. After evolving from a small Fishermen’s Credit Union to a regional institution with 34,000 members and 16 locations, G&F Financial said it had clearly outgrown its corporate office. The decision was made to take the first step in finding and designing a new space, making the largest historical investment in the organization’s future. 

Hoping to maintain its deep community roots in Burnaby, G&F said it succeeded in sourcing 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 Gone was the cramped, outdated office and boxed-in layouts of the past. Instead, it was replaced with a holistic design concept of flexibility that encourages collaboration between partners and departments
