Partnering with Upward Star Center

The range of expertise and products available at Hodge Floors goes beyond hardwoods and carpet for your home. Our work can be seen throughout Upstate South Carolina in homes, yes, but also in schools, large and small businesses— and even sports facilities. In 2014, Hodge Floors was honored to serve as the flooring provider for the Upward Star Center in Spartanburg.

The Upward Star Center in Spartanburg is a unique sports facility catering to about every kind of athlete. The complex houses 120,000 square feet of space to play sports, including: basketball and volleyball courts, batting cages, golf swing analysis areas, a running track, a work-out gym, dance/yoga studios, meeting rooms, and a team shop. Outside, there are even more options, including lighted sand volleyball courts and grass fields for soccer, lacrosse, and football.

For the Upward Star Center, Hodge Floors provided and installed Tandus carpet tiles, slip-resistant sheet vinyl (Mannington Sheet Vinyl) with welded seams, and synthetic turf (Grass Tex Athletic Turf) for the indoor baseball facility. Hootie Solesbee, the project manager for Harper Corporation, which built the Upward Star facility, said this about our work:

“I love working with Jamie and the entire Hodge Floors Team. Hodge Floors is highly professional and dependable. I have never been disappointed by Hodge Floors; time and time again they always come through.”

We’re thrilled to have partnered with a local contractor and a growing local brand that is improving our community. And we’re proud that our flooring will help ensure young athletes in Spartanburg are safe and supported.
