Gary Drostle wins 5th Annual FCI Installation Award
Congratulations to SAMA Member, Gary Drostle and Drostle Public Arts Ltd for winning the 5th Annual FCI (Floor Covering Installer) Installation Award (commercial) for their Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford project in Palo Alto, California! The award was given for their recent major commission which featured nineteen mosaic panels and hundreds of cast glass leaves set into bespoke designed terrazzo floor. The designs evoked the ecosystem and flora and fauna of the California Seashore and Redwood Forests.
The team that was part of the effort was Winckelmans Tile, Laticrete, DPR Construction, and TB Penick & Sons. Gary also wishes to thank Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Aesthetics Inc. and Perkins+Will for the opportunity to work on such a rewarding project.
