Warm Springs Tribal Members, local Jefferson County and City of Madras executives, celebrate the official ground breaking of the Warm Springs Travel Center. The Travel Center is being constructed on a 10-acre site near the airport industrial park in Madras. The Travel Center is a $6 million dollar 13,300 square foot facility that will include a convenience store, kitchen & dining area, auto and truck fueling stations, bathroom and shower facilities, as well as a gaming room. The gaming will be associated with the Indian Head Casino and the Tribes of Warm Springs. The project is a CM/GC contract, Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company as the General Contractor, and BBT Architects from Bend is the Architect. The project should be completed in the spring of 2018.
The week of May 8, through May 12, is scheduled to be the third annual company sponsored safety week here at Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company (KNCC). Each of our KNCC Offices in Bend, Portland and Pendleton will participate in the week-long safety education and training event which is in conjunction with “Oregon Break for Safety.”
During the safety week, each jobsite throughout the State will have informative talks about safety, job site hazards and KNCC’s continued commitment to safety. These events will be interactive and informative, promoting training, awareness and education for each of our employees and subcontractors. Several individual jobsite barbeques are scheduled throughout the week and on Friday May 12, employees are invited to a barbeque hosted by KNCC management at the Bend Office where tools and safety equipment will be given away during a company sponsored raffle.
This event is planned each year and organized by the Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company Safety Committee.
Cleaned bricks from the Kenwood Gym will be given to individuals on a first come first serve basis by the Bend LaPine School District. On January 12, 2017, the roof collapsed at the Kenwood Highland Magnet School because of heavy snow fall that had accumulated from winter snow storms. The bricks were transported to the construction yard and cleaned by Kirby Nagelhout Employees as a public service at no charge to the School District or Tax payers. “We take great pride in giving back to the community that has been so good to our company. It was apparent that the bricks meant a great deal to some of the citizens that attended school at Kenwood and we are proud to provide the service.” said Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company President Jeff Deswert. More than 1000 bricks will be transported to High Desert Middle School and one brick will be given to each person that requests a brick. The event is scheduled this Saturday, April 8, from 11a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Central Oregon area experienced a few weeks of extended weather in the form of snow fall and cold temperatures. With the continuous weather conditions the area started to experience unusual snow loads, resulting in structure failures. The Bend LaPine School District asked Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company to help remove the snow load from the roofs on the schools thru-out the district. We were happy to assist the local schools, and were pleased to be acknowledged by the district in following letter:
