Carpentry contract: group seeks answers

The group in charge of overseeing the Forsyth Barr Stadium project has called for answers in relation to issues that have arisen over carpentry contracts for the stadium. Dunedin Mayor Peter Chin, chairman of the stakeholders group, which includes the city and regional councils, said yesterday he was “trying to find some answers” to why there was a breakdown in communication between the Carisbrook Stadium Trust and major contractor Hawkins Construction.

The legal process had been followed, despite “a miscommunication in the reporting of the process to the trust”.

“Due process has to be followed. Most of the rules have been broken.”
-Malcolm Farry
