No Losses Anticipated as General Contractor Defaults on City Project

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Three times in the past year, a general  contractor has defaulted on a city renovation.  However, city officials assure us there's no need to worry. 

City Solicitor Doug Hudson confirms the general contractor in charge of the Public Operations Building and Electric Utility office renovation defaulted and can't finish the project.  He says the project was bonded, meaning both the city and those working on the project shouldn't be out any money.

Hudson stated that the project had been about three months behind under Trumbley and Hampton Inc. and that having to find a new contractor will slow things down a little more. However, he commented that it shouldn't take long for the bonding company to find a replacement and get things going again.

The project's currently about 50-per cent complete, and Hudson estimates it should be finished by next spring.

Hudson added that the project here in our city was one of five that Trumbley and Hampton defaulted on in Southern Alberta. They were the lowest bidder on the $1.7-million contract last January.

This is the third contractor default the city has dealt with in a year. A similar situation happened during work on the city hall annex on Stafford Drive north and on a fleet maintenance building renovation project worth $16-Million. Each had different contractors.
