Trindco has become One of the First Stone Fabrication Shops in Virginia to be Accredited Through the Marble Institute of America

August 2, 2013

Artisan Group member Trindco is one of the first stone fabricators in Virginia to be Marble Institute of America Accredited. Accredited Natural Stone Fabricators represent the best companies that work on residential and commercial stone projects.

“Trindco is now able to proudly display the accreditation logo, which symbolizes that they both are among the finest in the natural stone industry with respect to craftsmanship, safety, and business practices,” says Garen Distelhorst, the Accreditation Manager at the MIA.

“Success today depends not only on the expertise of your company, but also on the company you keep,” says Hunter Adams, owner of Trindco. “Achieving accreditation from the MIA makes Trindco a member of a very fine company of fabricators. We are proud of this achievement because it is a reflection of the pride and dedication our employees have to the Artisan Group of premier countertop fabricators.”

To become an Accredited Natural Stone Fabricator by the MIA, a company must have successfully completed three phases of application. Phase one was the completion of a lengthy application that required the applicant company to provide various documents and references which ensure that the company is in compliance with the 10 standards of accreditation as laid out by the MIA Accreditation Commission. Phase two required the company’s qualifying agent (the designated company representative responsible for filing and maintaining accreditation records for the applicant company) to pass a 200
question multiple-choice test. The exam tested the applicant’s knowledge and application of material usage, installation, fabrication, restoration, care and maintenance, administration, legal/contracts, and jobsite and shop safety. The third phase was a comprehensive site visit, which included a facility review, document review, and one or more installation site visits.

For the fourth consecutive year, Innovative Surfaces in Hastings has donated the granite countertop fabrication and installation for the Homeward Bound project, in conjunction with Century College. Homeward Bound is a nonprofit organization that houses severely disabled individuals, with around-the-clock caregivers. Century College Kitchen and Bath Design Students design the spaces and then the students at St. Paul College do the carpentry work, build cabinets and install. Architectural Granite & Marble provided the granite countertop slabs for the project.

“It is always a rewarding project,” says Margaret Krohn CKD, ASID, Faculty Century College. “We design the kitchens and other spaces to be more functional for the staff and residents. They buy site homes integrated into neighborhoods. We have many items donated for the spaces that need work, such as flooring, countertops, appliances, etc., and are grateful to have sponsors such as Innovative Surfaces. Innovative Surfaces does a lot for our Kitchen and Bath Design program as well.”

Century College is a local community college with highly regarded Kitchen and Bath Design Program, accredited by the NKBA.

“We feel strongly about the goodwill of this organization and the impact it has on the lives of those who otherwise may not be able to afford such modifications to their homes
says Kellie Akins, Marketing Manager, Innovative Surfaces. “The project provides us a platform to work along with, and gain exposure to, students working to receive certification in the Kitchen & Bath industry.”

This year’s design project consisted of the kitchen and medical/work area. This area is where the staff can store and prepare all medications for the residents. There also is a desk for the residents to use. The kitchen design provided a peninsula for the residents to use for various activities, including entertaining, when the residents’ families come to visit. The students each had their own design for the space, as a part of their final project for their Basic Kitchen and Bath Design class. Students also presented their project and ideas to the Homeward Bound representatives. The team at Homeward Bound then selected the components they liked from all of the designs, and final kitchen plans were drafted. The students at St. Paul College built and installed the cabinetry.

Innovative Surfaces, located at 2620 Industrial Court Hastings, MN 55033, is a wholesale selection center open M-F 8 am to 4:30pm, by appointment. Visit them online at http://www.innovativesurfaces.com.
