Cy-Fair contractors sued after Memorial Hermann Tower leaked
Construction companies located in the Heights and Cy-Fair are being sued after rainfall saturated the exterior of the Memorial Hermann Tower in April 2008.
MC Medical Campus and Memorial-area Metro National Corp. filed a lawsuit on April 26 in the Harris County District Court against Anslow-Bryant Construction, Heights-area Haley-Greer Inc. and Cy-Fair’s Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing alleging breach of contract, breach of express and implied warranties, and negligence.
The plaintiffs say that in October 2007, they hired Anslow-Bryant Construction to construct the 926,000-square-foot, 33-story hospital and office tower, known as Memorial Hermann Tower and located at 929 Gessner. Anslow-Bryant Construction hired Haley-Greer and Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing as subcontractors.
On April 28, 2008, an extended period of heavy rainfall occurred, and water infiltrated through the building’s exterior shell. This is the fault of the defendants, according to the press release.
The plaintiffs are seeking all damages to which they are entitled, attorney’s fees and court costs. They are being represented in the case by Houston attorney Jean Frizzell.
