SAN FRANCISCO – A San Francisco property owner alleges it was "forced" to hire new design and contractor professionals for a project because the general contractor originally hired performed defective work.
Augusta Legacy San Francisco Properties filed a complaint on Feb. 1 in the San Francisco Superior Court against Sigura Construction Inc. and Does 1 to 100 alleging breach of contract, fraud and other counts.
According to the complaint, on July 25, 2013, Augusta's managers entered into a written contract with defendant Sigura to execute a design-build project in San Francisco.
The plaintiff alleges that the defendant misrepresented the work it performed in its billing and failed to properly coordinate the design and construction of the project. The suit states the plaintiff hired a project manager who recommended construction consultants inspect the property. The consultants allegedly determined that there were "numerous and substantial defects" with the project, including with the windows, roof, siding and drainage.
The plaintiff alleges it was "forced" to hire new design and contractor professionals to repair the defects.
The plaintiff holds Sigura Construction Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly falsely represented that it could competently and diligently complete the design-build project.
The plaintiff seeks judgment for general, compensatory and special damages, prejudgment interest, costs of suit, attorneys' fees and such other and further relief as the court may deem proper. It is represented by Elizabeth A. England, Thomas W. Chaffee and Kaitlyn J. Sikora of Clark Hill LLP in San Francisco.
