Several companies are being sued for completing allegedly poor work during a redevelopment project.
GYB Investors LLC filed suit July 2 in Galveston County District Court against Mission Constructors Inc., Inventure Design LLC, Rigid Global Buildings LLC, American Fire Protection Group Inc. and Joseph R. Maytum.
According to the complaint, GYB owns the Galveston Yacht Basin, 715 N. Holiday Drive, Galveston, used for boating and fishing by the public, that was damaged by Hurricane Ike and subsequently purchased by the plaintiff in 2011 with the intention to redevelop it. Throughout 2012 and early 2013 GYB hired the defendants to assist in the redevelopment project, the suit states.
Following the work, GYB took possession of the property on July 18, 2013, and immediately noticed multiple and serious problems which compromised the site's ability to be used, the suit states. These problems persist, and the defendants are accused of breach of contract, breach of warranty, violating the Deceptive Trade Practices Act, negligence and breach of contractual indemnification.
The plaintiff is seeking damages, fees and costs in an amount to be determined by the court. It is represented by Houston attorney R. Edward Perkins of Sheehy Ware & Pappas PC.
