Some of the last standing buildings at the Korpine Particle Board Plant in Bend Oregon are nearing full demolition. On January 11,2017, several of the buildings at the Korpine property succumbed to heavy snow fall and collapsed. Korpine Particle Board Plant was built in 1963 as a joint venture with Brooks Scanlon. Willamette Industries took full ownership of the mill in 1976 and closed the doors to production in 2002. Kirby Nagelhout Construction has been contracted by McKenzie Creek Development LLC to demolish all the buildings on the property and crush and recycle as much of the remaining material as possible. 3 KINGS Demolition Contractors have been subcontracted to help perform some of the demolition duties. Pictured are 3 KINGS demolition staff taking down the last of the standing buildings.
