Tandus Flooring received the 2009 Antron Carpet Fiber Sustainable Flooring Performance Award for its Powerbond installation in Westminster High School. The award recognizes floorcoverings using Antron fiber that have continued to meet the needs of the client in both design and performance. Tandus has won every year since the award’s inception.
High School of the Adams County School District (ACSD) 50 in Westminster, CO
was chosen for the sustainability of the Powerbond floorcovering originally

took note of Powerbond’s performance at WHS as the hybrid resilient
floorcovering currently covers 80 percent of the 1.2 million square-feet of
maintainable space within the district-that equates to approximately 960,000

“Westminster High School
is a clear winner over time,” said Dennis Fortune of sustainability director
for McGill University and award judge. “To hold up
to that amount of foot traffic, it clearly functioned beyond expectations.”
The ACSD 50
will expand this year with the opening of the New Westminster High School, a
365,000 square-foot facility, and will include Powerbond installations in
classrooms, media centers, hallways and offices.
