Contractor Wants Workers Out of Treatment Plant Building
A dispute has developed involving a company working on a critical section of the Binghamton-Johnson City Sewage Treatment Plant.
In a letter provided to WNBF by Binghamton City Councilman Dan Livingston, the company warned the project manager - Jacobs Engineering Group - on August 15 that "critical life-safety systems" were incomplete in the building.
In the message, Quandel project executive Mark Salak wrote that the company won't accept any responsibility for damage or injuries resulting from the occupancy of the building before the work was finished.
Quandel sent a follow-up letter this week seeking a response to the previous warning, noting the company expects to be reimbursed for the delays linked to the early occupancy of the building.
Binghamton city councilman Dan Livingston said he is concerned about the issues raised by Quandel and the ongoing communication problems involving those working on the sewage treatment plant project.
