Coverings Names 'Project: Green' Winners

Orlando, FL, April 18, 2012 -- Winners of PROJECT: Green were announced at the first day of the Coverings trade show.

Best in Show for commercial/new construction went to a newly built 90,000-square-foot distribution and training center in Reno for Schluter Systems, a supplier of tile and installation systems.

Taking the Commercial/Remodel Best in Show award was San Francisco International Airport Terminal Two, where Crossville’s Color Blox tiles with a minimum of 20% recycled content were extensively incorporated into the design.

Named Best in Show for Institutional/Remodel was the John C. Kluczynski Federal Building in Chicago. Crossville again was the lead resource for tile featured in all 78 renovated bathrooms in the Mies van der Rohe-designed architectural landmark.

First Day attendance at Coverings 2012 was up 5% from its 2010 level when Coverings made its last appearance in Orlando, according to organizers.
“The numbers tell the story, and it’s looking very upbeat that design and installation needs for tile and stone may be on the rise from the slump of the past few years,” said Karen Fendrich, Coverings show director.

One of the biggest draws of the day was color expert Leatrice Eiseman, who’s been a returnee presenter at Coverings for nearly a decade.
