Starting off 2024 with a BANG as we were notified on January 9th that O’Brien’s build team was selected by the City of Astoria as the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) for the Astoria Public Library Renovation project. This will be our first major project in downtown Astoria as well as our first CMGC collaboration with Hennebery Eddy Architects.

Led by Astoria-native Derek Salo as Project Manager teamed with David Weathers as Superintendent, this dynamic duo carried the interview with themes that we are LOCAL, EXPERIENCED, and COLLABORATIVE.

Speaking of collaboration, our marketing team developed the “project placemat” shown above to help guide and focus the 1-hour interview. We used the placemat to respond directly to the questions we had been provided in advance and to summarize key aspects of our team, relevant experience, and ongoing support of coastal communities here in Oregon.

It is great to kick off the New Year with this big win! Preconstruction begins immediately and the build is scheduled to start in September of this year.
