Arvada sues parking hub builder

Posted

The City of Arvada filed a lawsuit against the Omaha-based construction company it hired to build a parking garage at a commuter rail station in the Olde Town district.

According to the suit filed Sept. 25 in Jefferson County District Court, the city alleges that Kiewit Building Group Inc. has failed to provide documentation of the costs it incurred while building the three-story facility, as required by contract.

Arvada entered into an agreement with Kiewit in October 2014, according to the lawsuit. The company served as construction manager and general contractor for the project, which in addition to parking spaces includes a bus transfer facility on the first floor.

The parking garage was completed, and opened to the public Feb. 2 with 600 parking spaces.

The suit also names three other companies as defendants that Kiewit hired as subcontractors: Denver-based RK Specialties Inc., Commerce City-based MB Roofing Inc., and Moline, Illinois-based KONE Inc.

Between June and September 2017, those subcontractors all contacted Arvada and said they had not been paid by Kiewit for labor and materials, according to court filings. The city says it named them as defendants because they would be affected by a court judgment.

The city of Arvada declined to comment on the suit. Kiewit, which has a local office in Englewood, did not respond to a request for comment.
