A sub-contractoring firm involved in the P.E.I. Convention Centre’s construction has filed a lien claim saying it’s owed more than $105,000 for work done on the building.
Wood Millers Inc. filed a mechanic’s lien in August against the estate of InnVest Properties Prince Edward Island Nominees Ltd. and the estate of the Charlottetown Area Development Corporation (CADC).
CADC owns the convention centre and Innvest Properties operates the Delta Prince Edward Hotel, which in turn manages the convention centre.
Wood Millers claims $105,218.72 for labour and
building materials used in convention centre’s construction, which were provided for Hay Enterprises.
Hay Enterprises was another sub-contractor operating
under the name Chandler Home Centre.
Ron Waite, CADC’s general manager, said the lien involved an issue between the sub-contractors and his understanding was that it would be lifted soon.
“They’ve reached an agreement offside from us,” he said.
The lien claim hadn’t been lifted as of Monday afternoon.
Attempts to speak to someone at Wood Millers Inc. and Hay Enterprises were unsuccessful.
The lien wasn’t the first time the convention centre was involved in legal proceedings.
CADC is involved in about $5 million in lawsuits with several companies over allegations of problems with work on the project and unpaid bills.
The provincially and federally funded convention centre was supposed to cost $17.5 million, but the final price tag came in at $24.3 million.
