Team TS Recognized at IIDA Carolinas DesignWorks Awards

May 21, 2019

Every year, the IIDA Carolinas Chapter hosts an awards event that recognizes and honors the best work of the year. The event, appropriately coined DesignWorks, brings hundreds of chapter members together while simultaneously building a community through hard work and shared goals.

DesignWorks 2019 came with a big win for Team TS. Our very own Jason Beamer was part of a project with Bonitz as well as LS3P’s Rachel Knudson & Stacie Schreiner (Raleigh office) that won Best Flooring Installation. The project included about 8,000-square-feet of flooring renovations for two lobby spaces inside of a large, office building in downtown Raleigh, NC.

A true team effort, Bonitz, LS3P, Vision Contracting, and Beamer collaborated to develop the ideal flooring solution for the space. Structurally, the lobby areas were in good shape but like all good things, its time to shine had come to an end. The lobby spaces were described as “out of style” and in need of “sophistication.”   

Equipped with the best flooring solutions, Beamer was able to help guide and support design decisions from the ground up. It was decided that one of Trinity Surfaces thin panel tile products would be the right fit. Ultimately, the product used in the project was Divine White Wood 30” x 30” and 60” x 30” – both sizes in a pattern.

Design and style were a part of the overall process for this project. As an active office building with a high volume of tenants, the foot traffic during normal working hours made the idea of installation pretty much impossible.

The team worked around the clock to minimize the disturbance of the tenants. They put in hours in off times and focused on small pieces of the overall space, one at a time.

Of course, we want to specifically recognize the Team TS member on this project, Jason Beamer. We’ve featured him on our Instagram before, but Beamer is a self-proclaimed “positively fun” teammate. He’s got more than 20 years of experience in the flooring industry, and his life motto is shared by everyone at Trinity Surfaces: “do for others before you do for yourself.”

IIDA Carolinas itself has more than 500 active members and has been hailed as one of the region’s “most active chapters.” At the intersection of value, knowledge, and advocacy you’ll find the core of IIDA Carolinas’ mission. Coincidently, we have a whole lot in common with those values!

Congratulations to LS3P and Trinity Surfaces’ Jason Beamer for the beautiful job well done and a fantastic accomplishment with the winning of the Best Flooring Installation award!
