NTCA announces winners of Five-Star Contractor Project of the Year Awards at Coverings 2024

Jackson, MS, April 26, 2024 – The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) proudly unveiled the recipients of the prestigious Five-Star Contractor Project of the Year Awards at Coverings 2024. These awards celebrate excellence and innovation in the tile installation industry, recognizing the outstanding achievements of top professionals. Among the winners were Hohn & Hohn, Inc., D.W. Sanders Tile and Stone Contracting, Inc., Christian Brothers Flooring & Interiors, Lippert Flooring & Tile, and David Allen Company.

Hohn & Hohn, Inc. was awarded the NTCA Five-Star Project of the Year Residential Artisan Achievement of Excellence for their work on the Collaboration in Tile project where they worked with local tile maker Josh Blanc on installing a new design in his home. Collaborating between creator and installer, tiles were able to be retooled as needed to be installed per Blanc’s requirements but still meet tile industry installation requirements.

D.W. Sanders Tile & Stone Contracting, Inc. won the NTCA Five-Star Project of the Year Residential Grand Prize for their technically sound work on When White Turns Red. The project required Thassos tile which when it got wet, it created red lines throughout the tile that would not disappear when dried. Technical expertise was required to solve the problem and finish the project with the tile requested by the designer and homeowner. Link to Project Award Video: https://youtu.be/0i7pzGOBwgc

Christian Brothers Flooring & Interiors received the NTCA Five-Star Project of the Year Commercial Grand Prize Award for their remarkable work on the Viejas Casino Expansion & Renovation Phase IB. The project consisted of 24 tile, stone, and glass finishes which required up to 35 tile craftsmen with shifts scheduled 24 hours a day, 6 days a week working both interior and exterior.

Lippert Flooring & Tile was awarded the NTCA Five-Star Project of the Year Large Commercial Achievement of Excellence for their incredible work on a The Trade Hotel.  Dealing with availability and cost of products, alternates were needed for the 84,000 square feet of tile and native cream thin brick.  Time constraints meant tile teams were spread throughout the hotel over 35 weeks to finish the project on time and under budget.  Link to Project Award Video: https://youtu.be/ZxfFO8Ppc98

Finally, David Allen Company won the NTCA Five-Star Project of the Year Large Commercial Grand Prize for their brilliant work on the Signia by Hilton – Georgia World Congress Center project. Having been delayed by COVID, the project had availability and cost issues that needed to be worked through including recommending changes to shower pan construction to save time, weight, and costs. Templates were created and shared with other trades to cut down on the time required for tile setters to be in each room.  Link to Project Award Video: https://youtu.be/k7jiJlCsUbY
