Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center in Athens, Ga., offers exceptional family-centered care in their facility. To improve the well-being of their patients seeking maternity care, they called on DCO Commercial Floors to assist with the renovation of the Labor and Delivery rooms. The project occurred while the hospital was in use, so extreme attention to detail and proper planning had to be used to execute this makeover. DCO Commercial Floors used American Olean tile in Black Wenge (Infusion series) and Cordial Grey (Rapport series), with Mapei Ultraflex 1 and Epoxy grout to set the materials.

San Antonio-based design firm Lake|Flato finally found a design-build partner in Katerra to refine and execute its Porch House concept, a system of modules with floor-to-ceiling windows and connecting porches that link the single-family structure to the outdoors. Over the years, Lake|Flato has tried various delivery methods for these houses, which typically range from 1,500 sf to 2,500 sf, including factory assembly components and site-built construction.
