Issue with structure leads to construction litigation

Construction projects can be complicated. Individuals wanting the project completed can have specific requests, and construction companies often do their best to manage those requests. However, construction litigation can take place if one or both parties involved in the project feel that the endeavor did not go to plan.

It was recently reported that a construction contractor and a Florida county are filing lawsuits against each other. Apparently, the contractor was hired to build a shooting range for the sheriff's office. The contractor claims that the county did not provide a final payment of $650,000 and breached the contract involved with the project. The contractor also indicated that there was an issue in the construction design, and the county rejected two proposals made by the contractor to fix the issue.

The county is apparently claiming that the contractor did not meet wind load requirements when building the structure. A particular part of the structure, the baffling system used to catch bullets, apparently will not withstand high winds. The county claims that the contractor did not use a specific subcontractor to perform the work on that part of the structure, but the contractor claims that the contract did not require using a specified subcontractor.

When something goes awry with a construction project, everyone involved can feel duped in some way. As this case shows, construction litigation can often result when companies feel that they are due compensation for their work. Of course, it also shows that additional legal action could come from the other party. As a result, Florida companies involved in this type of ordeal may want to discuss it with legal professionals to fully understand their options.
