Whiting-Turner Contracting Co. v Guar. Co. of N. Am. USA, 2019 BL 97923 (Colo. App. Mar. 21, 2019).
This construction dispute involved rights and obligations under a performance bond supplied for an office building construction project in Denver, Colorado. Whiting-Turner Contracting Company was the general contractor, and it subcontracted Klempco Construction to construct an anchor system for the project’s underground parking garage. Klempco provided performance and payment bonds for the project from Guarantee Company of North America USA (“GCNA”). When Klempco fell behind schedule, it stopped paying its sub-subcontractors and directed Whiting-Turner to assume responsibility for its work and sub-subcontractors.
