Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company selected as Construction Manager / General Contractor
Milton-Freewater Unified School District is excited to announce the selection of Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company (KNCC) as the Construction Manager / General Contractor (CM/GC) for the 2016 Bond projects. Although KNCC is based out of Bend, OR and works throughout the state, it is notable that they have an office in Pendleton which will give them the ability to dedicate local employees and resources from that location to oversee the projects. KNCC has been working with the District since last fall on the seismic upgrades to the Mac-Hi gymnasium which were recently unveiled at a community open house.
The KNCC team will be providing consulting, value engineering and estimating services during the pre-construction phase of the project and serve as the general contractor during construction, holding the trade contracts and providing management and construction services during the construction phase. The company has committed to help lead the team design and construct cost-effective, durable and functional facilities. Additionally they have a proven track record and dedication to maximize local involvement by hiring local workers, utilizing local services as well as using local suppliers and subcontractors to complete the work.
Currently the District’s Bond Project team is still in a schematic design phase and has been engaging with the Milton-Freewater community in related conversations. Architects West/Opsis Architecture team have held several work groups to foster participation for various design elements and will be looking for continued community involvement over the next several weeks. The next community forum is expected to be held at the end of October.
