The construction-management company that built the new stadium for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers is suing the company that provided the structural steel and created the roof.
Stuart Olson Dominion Construction has filed a statement of claim in Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench against Quebec-based Structal Heavy Steel for special and general damages which at this time is tallied at more than $14.3 million.
As well, Dominion is also suing Structal for $1 million in punitive damages for what it alleges were Structal’s "capricious, high handed, malicious, oppressive and arbitrary manner for the purposes of its own interest."
Dominion is claiming that because of construction delays, caused by Structal, not only did the Investors Group Field not open in time for the Blue Bombers to play in last season, but it also alleges the delays also caused water damage to portions of the facility that had been constructed, as well as costing extra to store seats until they could be installed.
A spokesman for Dominion would only verify that a lawsuit has been filed, while a spokesman for Structal said the company does not comment on issues before the courts.
The allegations have not been proven in court and no statement of defence has been filed.
