Deschutes Public Library Selects Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company as General Contractor for Bond-funded Construction Projects

We’re overjoyed to announce our role as CM/GC for two Deschutes County Public Library projects: the new Central Library as well as the Redmond Library.

In the Cascade Business News article, our President, Jeff Deswert, states: “Public projects like these Libraries have a more significant impact on the communities they serve than other projects that come along. This gives us the opportunity to continue to invest our efforts in the community that has provided for us. We support Central Oregon in many ways and now we have the opportunity to support our families that live, learn and play here in Central Oregon.”

We would like to extend our gratitude to Deschutes County Libraries for granting us this opportunity to partner with them on these projects. We are immensely proud of our team for their hard work in this process and are excited to start construction next year!
