    Brandon firm

    takes top honors

    BRANDON — The McKernon Group placed first in the category of Commercial Renovation by the Home Builders and Remodelers Association of Southern Vermont.

    Known locally and statewide for its residential and light commercial projects, The McKernon Group was honored for its renovation of the Lake Placid Pub and Brewery in Lake Placid, N.Y.

    The building underwent a facelift and upgrade to maximize the use of the restaurant and brewery space.

    The restaurant and brewery remained open during the eight months of construction. The building is now handicapped accessible. The use of spray foam insulation has also reduced the owner’s heating bills.

    The project was evaluated for its construction practices, craftsmanship, energy-saving design and materials.
