TIGARD, Ore. (PORTLAND TRIBUNE) — The Tigard-Tualatin School District is suing a Hillsboro construction company for its poor work on Alberta Rider Elementary School in Tigard, Ore.
The suit claims Robinson Construction did not install doors and windows correctly or use proper building materials, which has led to serious water damage in the walls, doors and other areas of the school.
The nearly $1.5 million in damages sought by the District is to make up for money spent on repairs and school closures during repairs, said a Tigard-Tualatin School District spokesperson.
“I can understand why they would be upset and the kids deserve a good school,”said neighbor Joe Weber.
“Mold’s an issue you don’t want mold growing in the schools,” he said.
Robinson Construction did not respond to a media request from KOIN 6. Instead, reporters were referred to Robinson’s lawyer.
