Colchester council to take legal action on T&T over Vinoly Visual Arts Facility

Colchester council is to release £500,000 of funds to continue their legal battle over the much delayed construction of Rafael Vinoly-designed Colchester Visual Arts Facility. The council previously won a court battle against contractor Banner Holdings after work fell drastically behind schedule, however the firm has since gone into administration leading councilor Paul Smith to admit: “due to Banner’s administration, we may not recover all our costs.” The claimant has since turned its focus to new QS and project manager Turner & Townsend, in an effort to recoup some of its losses, despite the fact that T&T assisted Colchester during the Banner case. Construction began in 2006 and was originally set for completion in spring 2008, however delays have pushed this date back to September 2011.
