Local Parkway Contractor Settles Lawsuit

There’s a settlement in a lawsuit filed by a Windsor building supply company who went after parkway contractor Freyssinet for money owing.

Hotham Building Materials was owed $116,000 for its work on the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Pkwy. At the time, owner Charlie Hotham said it was a large financial hardship for the company with ten employees. Hotham Building Materials also put the provincial government on notice that a lawsuit would be filed against them too.

Hotham won’t release details citing a confidentiality agreement.

The Ontario government fired Freyssinet after hundreds of girders it built were deemed unsafe.
