Using the Past to Build the Future Since 1982

Lolo Pass Road / Zig Zag Bridge

Zig Zag, Oregon

I think the most rewarding job for me was the work we completed on Lolo Pass Road and at the Zig Zag Bridge.  Virtually all the work we do is related to new development or reconstructing of an existing site.  The emergency repairs we were involved in, after the flooding on Mt. Hood, were much more rewarding.  Not only did we provide access for families that had been trapped in their homes for over a week, but we did it during very adverse conditions in the middle of winter.  Completing this work took dedication from the team and commitment to succeed beyond the things we typically do.  Moving a river is not something you do every day and probably only once in a lifetime.  There were no new buildings when we were done but that job made a real difference to the people in that community.  It’s not often in this industry that you get a standing ovation for doing your work.  On that job, we did.  That’s why we do what we do – we make a difference!

Sandy High School

Sandy, Oregon 2012

The Sandy High School project consisted of building a new state of the art school and sports field facilities. This project was in our own home town and several of our employees that worked on the project were graduates of Sandy HS. It was an honor for us to be able to provide our services on this venture. This project was a huge impact to the community businesses as well as impactful to the students and families that now get to enjoy the fabulous facilities. We are very proud to be a part of such a great endeavor. We now see many new homes being built in the area in hopes new homeowners sending their children to thrive in this spectacular facility.

Archer Daniels Midland (ADM)


“The Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) job has been my favorite Konell job to date. It started right at square one with the demolition of existing buildings all the way through site utilities, excavation, grading and applying the finishing touches for the surface work. Being new to site work, this was a huge learning experience for me. I had a great crew around me and I enjoyed learning the, “Konell the way,” which I now know is why we have been successful for so long. I was able to get hands on at times and there was a lot of change in the field and with RFI’s so it forced me to learn quickly while enjoying the work.

Overall it was a great job that involved all of the aspects of our work and it paved the way for more client relationships in the future and I was introduced to a lot of new people. “
