In mid-2020, UMC partnered with Condray Design Group to completely remodel clinic space that has now been our new Breast Imaging Center for a year. And we are proud to say the design of this space is officially award winning!
Starnet Commercial Flooring, the world’s largest network of full-service commercial flooring contractors, has revealed the first of several Starnet Design Awards winners of 2021. Now in its 23rd year, the annual competition honors the outstanding projects completed by the membership in partnership with the architects, designers and Starnet aligned manufacturing partners. The Gold in Healthcare was awarded to Starnet Member LVR Commercial Flooring for the company’s work at UMC Breast Imaging Center.
Located in UMC Medical Office Plaza II, the premier breast imaging center of West Texas worked with Condray Design Group and their vendors to execute a full renovation to better fit our vision and mission of healing, including a thoughtful reimaging of the floor to honor breast cancer awareness.
Designers incorporated the iconic pink ribbon throughout the space, creating a soothing, comforting atmosphere in the process.
Design Awards Judge Alison Woolf, LEED AP Associate Principal, Design Director, Huntsman Architectural Group, was immediately impressed by the project, saying, "Condray Design Group so successfully used flooring materials to convey wayfinding, pattern, and brilliance in their design. They did a marvelous job creating a positive, welcoming, and uplifting environment for people to experience in the hardest of times. Excellent work!"
Fellow Judge Andrea Hanson, AIA, WELL AP, Principal, Architect, Licensed Interior Designer, Dekker/Perich/Sabatini, echoed her sentiments, adding, “The material choices were outstanding, seamlessly blending highly cleanable resilient flooring necessary for healthcare environments with carpeting and soft surfaces that manage acoustics and contribute to a quiet, healing environment.”
