Claim Settled Against Printing Plant

 A claim was settled against a design/build firm for $24 million alleging various defects and deficiencies in a newly constructed printing plant.  Initial allegations of damage were $300 million.  Problems arose with the concrete, fire protection, electrical, and HVAC systems.  The client continues to incur costs to repair the defects.  The design/build contractor sought recovery of $5 million from various subcontractors based on their presumed liability for construction errors that contributed to the defective conditions at the printing plant.
