WAYNESBORO, Pa. — A judge will hear arguments on May 21 in a pair of lawsuits filed against the Waynesboro Area School District in which the plaintiffs are seeking almost $3.5 million in damages.
Contractors who worked on the Waynesboro Area Senior High School renovation and expansion project three years ago are suing for breach of contract and other complaints.
General contractor Lobar Inc. is asking for $2.9 million in damages, saying it incurred additional labor, material and overhead costs associated with a deficient and defective design for the building’s steel structure.
It also claimed in a complaint filed in June 2010 that the school district refused to pay $1.4 million owed to the company.
In a complaint filed in September, 2010, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning contractor Herre Bros. Inc. claimed contract documents were incomplete and inaccurate, and delays cost the company more than $594,278.
