TBCC Pending Kirby Nagelhout as General Contractor for Healthcare Education Building

The Tillamook Bay Community College (TBCC) Board of Education has accepted the qualified low bid of $17,550,000 from Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company (KNCC) to construct the TBCC’s new 28,000 sq. ft. Healthcare Education building. The college originally reviewed unsealed bids on May 7 at 2 PM. This is a bond-funded construction project, and TBCC is obligated by state procurement law to accept the lowest bid. KNCC proposed the lowest bid and came within the anticipated budget.

KNCC has over 38 years of construction experience and serves all of Oregon and parts of southern Washington; their educational construction background is also extensive. They have worked on many education-based projects including a 43,795 sq. ft. building for Clackamas Community College (CCC) with an attached 2,500 sq. ft. event hall, the 37,618 sq. ft. Technology Education Center on Central Oregon Community College’s (COCC) Redmond campus that houses research labs for veterinary technician programs, and various buildings for colleges and universities across the state such as Eastern Oregon University, Oregon State University, the Bend campus of COCC, and more.

Staff and faculty at the college are excited to see the transformation. The President of TBCC, Dr. Paul Jarrell, stated, “We are so excited to see the construction of our new Healthcare Education facility begin next month. We could not be happier with Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company as the General Contractor for this work. They will be a great addition to our team, which includes Wenaha Group for project management and Opsis Architecture for planning and design. This campus and community transformation would not be possible without the strong support of our community. We look forward to seeing you all on campus for our official groundbreaking.”

The Groundbreaking Ceremony for TBCC’s Healthcare Education Building will take place on June 21 at 1 PM with formal remarks starting around 1:30 PM. TBCC President Dr. Paul Jarrell will be there alongside important dignitaries. As a bond-funded project, the construction of the Healthcare Education Building would not be possible without the support of Tillamook County residents. Please come by the college and join the celebration at the Groundbreaking Ceremony on June 21 at 1 PM.
