Northway Construction named contractor of the year
BAXTER — Northway Construction Services, Baxter, was recently named Contractor of the Year for the second consecutive year by the Minnesota chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
The award recognized Northway Construction’s outstanding achievement in the “entire house over $500,000” category for remodeling Loch Lodge, a home on Rush Lake near Crosslake.
The Contractor of the Year Award recognizes Northway Construction’s excellence in building aesthetics and functionality, ability to overcome obstacles, superior craftsmanship and the use of innovative construction materials and techniques.
Inspiration for Loch Lodge was drawn from historic grand lodges with intimate rooms designed to entertain groups of people, blended dark woodwork and a warm palette of colors and rustic finishes. The original stone fireplace remains the centerpiece of the home while exposed timbers add a historical element to Loch Lodge.
Last year, Northway Construction received the acclaimed national Excellence in Construction Eagle Award for remodeling Loch Lodge, and rebuilding a cabin and carriage house also located on the property. The award, from Associated Builders and Contractors, is considered the construction industry’s highest honor.
Northway Construction, located in Baxter, specializes in building and remodeling homes in central Minnesota.
