The authority that operates the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburg will receive $4.78 million from firms to settle claims over a floor collapse. In February 2007, a concrete slab crashed to a walkway about 30 feet below when a tractor-trailer drove through a loading area. Fortunately, no one was injured, but there was tremendous property damage. The city-county Sports & Exhibition Authority approved the settlement on December 18th. It filed a notice of intent to sue last summer.
The firms settling the claims include steel fabricator ADF Group, Rafael Vinoly Architects and contractor Dick Corp. The authority’s insurer, The Travelers Indemnity Co., will receive $1.125 million from contractors. The settlement represents about 90% of the loss attributed to the collapse.
