PITTSBURGH – A graphic arts group is looking to recoup over $300,000 in services rendered from a Pittsburgh-based construction company, and has filed legal action to that effect.
Bunting Graphics, Inc. of Verona filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Oct. 10 versus Turner Construction Company of Pittsburgh.
On June 26, 2013, the parties entered into a subcontract work order, where Bunting Graphics worked for a construction job at the Frick Operation Center, which included all material, labor and equipment as needed for the work to be completed, an agreement which the suit says the defendant “received, accepted and agreed upon the construction work entered into via the agreement.”
“Plaintiff avers that as of April 7, 2017, a balance of $294,820.51 remains due and owing to plaintiff, as a result of the defendant’s failure to pay for the aforementioned contract work,” the suit says – plus legal interest of $4,022.48 as of June 29 (calculated at a rate of six percent) and an agreement that the defendants will pay the plaintiff’s legal fees, to remain unliquidated until the time of trial.
The complaint claims the defendant has denied the payment of these costs.
For counts of breach of contract and guaranty, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $298,842.99, plus continual interest at a rate of six percent, attorney’s fees and costs.
The plaintiff is represented by Raymond P. Wendolowski Jr. of Bernstein Burkley, in Pittsburgh.
