PITTSBURGH – Allegedly broken agreements connected to a Bethel Park construction project are at the center of recently-filed litigation between an electrical company plaintiff and construction company defendants.
Consolidated Electrical Distributors, Inc. of Pittsburgh filed suit in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas on Dec. 26 versus Pioneer Mechanical Services, LLC of Coraopolis, Joseph M. Ravas of Moon Township and HGC Construction Co., of Cincinnati.
HGC was the general contractor on a construction project known as Artis Senior Living of South Hills, in Bethel Park. Per a subsequent credit application, plaintiff sold and delivered certain goods and merchandise to defendant Pioneer which supposedly went unpaid for, leading to an outstanding total balance of $107,921.59 – comprised of a principal balance of $83,152.04, service charges of $24,769.55 through Dec. 20, 2017 and attorney’s fees of $2,079, for a grand total of $110,000.59.

For counts of breach of contract against Pioneer, breach of personal guaranty agreement against Ravas and breach of joint check agreement against HGC and Pioneer, the plaintiff is seeking damages of $110,000.59 along with continuing contractual service charges of 1.5 percent per month thereon from and after Dec. 21, 2017 and continuing attorney’s fees as they accrue in this matter against Pioneer and Ravas, and jointly and severally in the amount of $81,053.08, with continuing interest thereon at the rate of 1 percent per month, continuing penalty thereon at the rate of 1 percent per month, accrued attorney’s fees and record court costs against HGC Construction Co. and Pioneer.
