At Coverings 2021, we honored nine outstanding projects that demonstrated spectacular craftsmanship and creativity in the use of tile & stone. This week we’re putting the spotlight on the Commercial Tile Installation winner.
Commercial Tile Installation Winner
Lakeside Country Club
Camarata Masonry Systems, Ltd.
After the devastating flooding resulting from Hurricane Harvey, the clubhouse at Lakeside Country Club was demolished and rebuilt 7 feet higher than the original building. The scope of work included the supply and installation of approximately 76,000 SF of tile and stone wall, floor, base, tops, and stairs. The specifications called for 78 different stone and tile types and sizes ranging in thickness from 3/8” to 15” and in size from 1” x 1” to 12” x 60”.
The stone package included a monumental stair, three fireplace mantels, facings and hearths, lavatory tops and numerous countertops. Other components of the scope included preparation of the shop drawings, design of the dimensional stone attachment systems and salvaging and relocation of the original crest from the exterior of the old clubhouse to the wall above the men’s lounge fireplace.
In summary, the installation was extensive with the scope including material installation in almost every room of the sprawling facility including the entrances, kitchen, janitors’ closets, 17 restrooms, corridors, locker rooms, dining rooms and bar areas.
