A Harris County corporation has filed suit against the companies that it claims failed to pay it for aluminum canopies it installed at South Park Middle School. 

Luebe-Jones, doing business as Avadek, claims it agreed to install aluminum canopies at the middle school for $114,405. After crediting defendant Allco $2,332 for a damaged feed to a light pole, Avadek was owed $113,347 for its work, according to the complaint filed Oct. 31 in Jefferson County District Court.

However, Allco failed to pay Avadek the total amount owed, the suit states.

Defendant Travelers Casualty and Surety Co., which posted a bond for the project, also failed to render complete payment, the complaint says.

“In August 2012, Allco paid the amount of $99,680.29, leaving a balance of $13,666.71 due and owing on the contract,” the suit states.

In addition to the money it says it is owed, Avadek is seeking pre- and post-judgment interest at 18 percent per annum, plus attorney’s fees, court costs and other relief the court deems just.

Charles E. Lobb Jr. of Murray and Lobb in Houston will be representing him.

The case has been assigned to Judge Donald Floyd, 172nd District Court.

Case No. E193-534
